Call for Participation: FPGA 2019

Twenty-Seventh ACM/SIGDA International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays

February 24-26, 2019
Embassy Suites by Hilton Monterey Bay Seaside
1441 Canyon Del Rey, Seaside, California, 93955, USA

Early registration ends January 22nd

The ACM/SIGDA International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays is the premier conference for advances in all aspects of FPGA technology. Three full days of presentations and posters will share the latest research, including:

The conference kicks off Sunday with several tutorials, followed by hands-on breakout sessions offering a deep dive on open-source tools. One session will implement network functionality on an FPGA-based platform using the P4 Language and the NetFPGA platform. The second session will focus on building domain-specific implementation tools using the RapidWright framework.

Sunday afternoon will consist of a special session with the newest research on machine learning in FPGAs, including work on Cloud frameworks, efficient quantization, and leveraging sparsity in deep learning.

The Monday night banquet will feature this year's inductions into the FPGA Hall of Fame, along with a panel discussion around "FPGAs in Supercomputers: Opportunity or Folly?", with representatives from FPGA vendors and the High-Performance Computing community.

A welcome reception will be held Sunday evening, and lunches are provided all three days.

A limited number of travel grants are available for the FPGA'19 participants. Priority is given to those who need the grant the most. Other factors such as whether the applicant is a student, is a presenter, or belongs to under-represented groups will also be considered. It is important to keep all your receipts, as ACM will require them for reimbursement. The application deadline is Feb 17, 2019. The application form is here:

We look forward to seeing you at FPGA 2019!
