The IEEE Symposium on Field Programmable Custom Computing Machines
(FCCM) is the original and premier forum for presenting and discussing
new research related to computing that exploits the unique features and
capabilities of FPGAs and other reconfigurable hardware.

For 24 years, FCCM has been the place to present papers on
architectures, tools, and programming models for field programmable
custom computing machines and applications that use such systems. Papers
are solicited on the following topics related to Field Programmable
Custom Computing Machines (FCCMs):

Abstractions, Architectures, and Programming Models:
* Novel architectural abstractions
* Architectures for high performance and/or low power computing
* New spatial architectures built from different components than
   traditional FPGAs
* Security enhancements for reconfigurable computing

Languages and Compilers:
* New languages and design frameworks for spatial or heterogeneous
* Tools to make run-time reconfiguration more accessible to application
* Compilation and CAD techniques for reconfigurable and spatial
   computing systems

Run-Time Systems and Run-Time Reconfiguration:
* Techniques for virtualizing reconfigurable hardware
* Run-time management of reconfigurable hardware
* Fault tolerance for reconfigurable hardware
* Use of reconfigurability to build evolvable or adaptable computing
* Novel uses of run-time reconfiguration in application-specific systems
* Implications of run-time reconfiguration on security

* Applications built using new high level synthesis technologies
* Data center applications
* Applications that utilize reconfigurable technology for performance
   and efficiency
* Comparison of application implementations on different spatial

Paper Formats:
FCCM will accept 8-page papers for oral presentation and 4-page short
papers for short oral and poster presentation. All submissions should
be written in the English language. An online submission link will be
available on the FCCM website in late December. Papers should use the
formatting template linked at the FCCM website.

****New for 2016****
Later Deadline for Short Paper Submission:
Authors are encouraged to submit preliminary work using the 4-page
format. This category is intended for new projects and early results.
These submissions will be accepted one week later than the 8-page

Peer Review:
FCCM uses a double blind reviewing system. Manuscripts must not identify
authors or their affiliations. When referencing their own papers,
authors are encouraged to do so in a way in which they do not identify
themselves as authors. References that clearly identify the authors
(for example, "We build on our previous work...") should be shown as
"Removed for blind review". Papers that identify authors will not be

Best Paper Award/
Special Section Best FCCM16 Papers in ACM TRETS:
FCCM 2015 will continue the tradition of having a best paper award. We
will also invite the authors of the best papers to extend their work to
be considered for publication in a special section of ACM's
Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems (TRETS) for FCCM
2015. Send in your best work for consideration!

Important Dates:
Full Paper Submission: January 5, 2016
Short Paper Submission: January 12, 2016
Notification of Acceptance: March 1, 2016
