FCCM 2020 Call for Participation

The IEEE International Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines (FCCM) is the premier forum for presenting and discussing new research related to computing that exploits the unique features and capabilities of FPGAs and other reconfigurable hardware.
In response to the COVID-19 world pandemic. this years conference will take the form of a virtual event organized to mirror the usual physical conference.  The virtual conference is organized as a series of forums that represent 6 paper sessions (with Best Paper Award), 6 poster sessions, and 3 live workshops.
The forums will be open to attendees on the FCCM website starting May 4th.  Registration for these forums will be free and open to the entire community.  Every paper and poster session will have links to the PDFs that will appear in the proceedings along with a discussion thread.  Papers and posters will also be accompanied by a video presentation - 20 minutes for full papers, 10 minutes for short papers, and 5 minutes for posters.  The discussion forums will remain open for attendees to post new questions and comments until June 1st.  After this point, the presentations and comments will still be viewable, but new comments will be disabled.  As usual, the proceedings will be posted to IEEE Xplore after the conference has concluded. 
The technical program can be found here: https://www.fccm.org/home/program/
In addition to the asynchronous technical sessions, we will also have 3 live workshops on Wednesday and Thursday, May 6th and 7th.  Xilinx will discuss “Vitis for Edge and Cloud Acceleration Workflow” in two parts on May 6th and 7th (time still TBD).  Intel will present “Intel FPGA Clouds for Academic Research and Teaching” on May 6th from 11AM to noon, CDT. There will also be a research-focused workshop, "The Future of FPGA-Acceleration in Cloud and Datacenters" on May 6th from 11AM to 3:30PM, CDT.  Registration and further details on these workshops can be found on the Workshops section of the Program here: https://www.fccm.org/home/program/#workshops

Questions about this call should be directed to the program chair, Ken Eguro.
