Extended Deadline
FPL 2022 CALL FOR PhD Forum/Demo Night


  The 32nd International Conference on
  Field-Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL)
  Aug 29 to Sep 2, 2022 @ Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK


   ** Extended Submission deadline: June 27th, 2022

The International Conference on Field-Programmable Logic and
Applications (FPL) was the first and remains the largest covering the
rapidly growing area of field-programmable logic and reconfigurable
computing. Field-programmable devices promise the flexibility of
software with the performance of hardware and have become an important
area of research and development in high-performance computing systems,
embedded and low-power control instruments, mobile communications, rapid
prototyping and product emulation, among other areas. For the last 31
years, FPL has seen the first unveiling of the latest and most
significant works in reconfigurable architectures, applications,
embedded processors and design automation. FPL2022 will bring together
academic and industrial researchers and practitioners from across the
globe. It will offer a hybrid format, with the entire conference
accessible both in-person and online.

The FPL 2022 PhD Forum is an excellent occasion for PhD students to
present their work in progress or preliminary results, and receive early
feedback from senior researchers and experts in the domain. Moreover, it
is a unique opportunity for PhD students, whether fresh or close to
completion, to give a broad overview of their work and draw attention to
it from both the academic and industrial worlds.

PhD Forum authors are invited to submit 2-page papers using the same
format as FPL 2022 regular papers before the deadline of June 27th, 2022
through the EasyChair submission system:


PhD Forum papers should include clear descriptions of the project’s
motivation, objectives, problem definition, addressed solutions, current
status, and planned work if applicable. Contributions based on
preliminary results or on work in progress are particularly encouraged.
Accepted PhD Forum papers require a registration for being included in
the conference proceedings and will be presented at a special poster
session in conjunction with the FPL Demo Night. Therefore, PhD forum
presenters can optionally provide a demo along with the poster
presentation. Prior to the forum, presenters will endorse their posters
through a short “elevator pitch” (2‐minute presentation).

The FPL 2022 Demo Night is an opportunity to demonstrate and disseminate
exciting work at the biggest annual gathering of experts in the field.
Bring your demo to FPL and increase your visibility, interact with
attendees, impress the FPL community and make a real impact.
Demonstrations may include, but are not limited to, academic or
commercial experiments, prototypes, tools, platforms, systems, and
applications. This year, we are particularly inviting open-source
contributions. Academic presenters must register for the conference and
presenters from industry, must sign up for one of the on-site sponsor
packages. Demo Night presenters are invited to submit a demo description
through the EasyChair submission system by June 27th, 2022 providing the
following information:

  * Demo Title

  * Names, affiliations, and email addresses (if different from the
EasyChair information)

  * Description of the demo, its main objectives and its relevance to
the FPL community

  * Short biographies of demo presenters

  * Any logistical requirements the demonstration may have (Internet
access, screens, etc.)

Optionally, each submission may include a one-page abstract using the
FPL 2022 regular papers format on a separate page. The abstract must
state a technical contribution and will appear in the proceedings
subject to passing a review process (pure marketing will be rejected).
Abstract titles must start with “FPL Demo: …”

You are welcome to use those email addresses of the PhD Forum and Demo
Night chairs for informal queries.
