FPGA 2023: First Call for Participation

       The 31st ACM/SIGDA International Symposium on
Field-Programmable Gate Arrays

February 12-14th, 2023
Monterey, California, USA


	The ACM/SIGDA International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate Arrays is the premier conference for advances in all aspects of FPGA technology. After two years of virtual conferences, this year will return to a fully in-person conference in Monterey. Three days of tutorials, presentations, and posters will share the latest research results on many exciting topics. Highlights of the program include:

   * Keynote by Saman Amarasinghe of MIT on “Compiler Support for Structured Data”
   * Keynote by Jaideep Dastidar of AMD on “FPGAs and Their Evolving Role in Domain Specific Architectures: A Case Study of the AMD 400G Adaptive SmartNIC/DPU SoC”
   * Banquet panel on open-source hardware & software for FPGAs
   * Seven tutorials/workshops and over 50 paper & poster presentations on FPGA architecture, circuit design, design automation tools, application acceleration, systems design, and security

	The preliminary technical program is now available at: https://www.isfpga.org/program/

	The conference kicks off Sunday with multiple workshops throughout the morning and afternoon. The first main technical session begins Monday and features poster and paper presentations in the morning and afternoon and a welcome banquet and panel in the evening. During the banquet, food and beverages will be provided, and the panel will discuss the current landscape of open-source FPGA technologies and their impact and benefits for the community.

	A limited number of travel grants are available for FPGA 2023 participants. Travel grants are mostly intended for students and those with limited or no funds to travel to the conference. It is intended to encourage wider participation, especially of minorities and those who are in their early years of FPGA research. A number of factors would be considered by the committee, including the need justification, whether the applicant is a student (not a requirement), whether the applicant is helping in the efforts to evaluate artifacts (a plus), and whether a paper or poster is being presented by the applicant. The last condition is a plus, but not a requirement; in fact, the committee would look positively at applications that show the participant is looking for networking opportunities and learning more about FPGAs to enrich their FPGA research. The application form is here: https://go.epfl.ch/fpga23
