Call For Papers

Programmable devices are very attractive to aerospace applications due to their high logic integration capability, high flexibility during the project phase and reconfigurability. However, FPGAs are fabricated in nanometer technologies and consequently they are susceptible to interference during lifetime that may provoke transient errors. One of the major concerns is the radiation effect due to the presence of neutrons in the atmosphere and of protons, electrons and heavy ions in space. Neutron interacts with the material provoking secondary energized particles that can provoke soft errors. Proton, electron and heavy ions may ionize directly the material provoking soft errors. The objective of this workshop is to discuss commercial of the shelf (COTS) FPGAs for aerospace applications, radiation effects results in FPGAs, soft error rate (SER) of FPGAs under radiation environment and mitigation techniques to radiation effects targeting the aerospace market.

Topics of the FSP Workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Radiations effects in FPGAs

- Fault tolerant techniques for FPGAs

- Use of COTS FPGAs in aerospace applications

- Experimental data of FPGAs under radiation

- FPGA embedded processors under radiation

- Fault injection in FPGAs

Paper submission

Perspective authors are invited to submit original contributions (up to six pages). All papers should be submitted in PDF file format following the standard IEEE conference template (

All submissions have to be sent via the conference management system EasyChair. Please set up your own personal account if you do not already own an EasyChair account.


Accepted papers will be included in an ePrint proceedings volume with Open Access. Every accepted paper must have at least one author registered to the workshop by the time the camera-ready paper is due. In addition, selected authors will be invited to contribute a chapter for a book project.

Presentation formats

We are seeking contributions for presentation as oral papers (talk) and posters. While you will be asked to indicate your preferred presentation format when submitting a paper, the program committee may request an alternative format be considered. The program committee will allocate the format of presentations, taking into account the preference of authors and the balance of the program.
