Call For Papers

26th IEEE International Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines (FCCM 2018)
April 29 – May 1, 2018 Boulder, CO, USA

The IEEE International 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 25 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 reconfigurable architectures, including overlay architectures
Architectures for high performance and/or low power computing
Security enhancements for reconfigurable computing
Volatile and non-volatile memory subsystems; stacked/hybrid memory cubes
Emerging technologies with runtime reconfigurable-like properties
Clusters or large systems of reconfigurable devices
Abstractions, programming models, and runtimes, including virtualization
New languages and design frameworks for spatial or heterogeneous applications
High-level synthesis and designer productivity in general
Software-Defined-systems (e.g. radio, networks, frameworks for new domains)
Run-time management of reconfigurable hardware
System resilience/fault tolerance for reconfigurable hardware
Evolvable, adaptable, or autonomous reconfigurable computing systems
Security implications of run-time reconfiguration
Data center/cluster with reconfigurable applications
New uses of run-time reconfiguration in applications-specific systems
Applications that utilize reconfigurable technology for performance and efficiency
Novel use of state-of-the-art commercial FPGAs
Important Dates:
Long Paper Submissions Due: Jan. 12, 2018

Paper Formats
FCCM will accept 8-page papers for oral presentation and 4-page short papers for short oral and poster presentation. 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 papers. Do not submit the same work to both streams.

All submissions should be written in the English language. An online submission link will be available on the FCCM website at Papers must meet the IEEE guidelines to be reviewed and published; links to templates are at the FCCM website.

Review Process
FCCM uses a double blind reviewing system. Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliations. Authors are encouraged to cite their own work but must not implicitly identify themselves. For example, references that clearly identify the authors ("We build on our previous work...") should be written as "This work builds on XYZ [cite]" where [cite] is the real reference. Do not put a "deleted for double-blind" entry in the reference section. (Without proper references to the prior work, reviewers will not be able to determine the contribution of the submission.) In the case of widely-available Open Source software, authors should embrace the website(s) but not claim to own them. Authors should also remember to mask grant numbers and other government markings during the review process. Papers that attempt to identify authors or leverage prior work or institutional support for a competitive advantage in the peer review process will not be considered.

Best Paper Award and a Special Section for the Best FCCM 2018 Papers in ACM TRETS
FCCM 2018 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 2018. Send in your best work for consideration!

Special Note to Authors
At least one author of each accepted submission is expected to attend the conference and present their work. Failure to present in person at the conference will result in the removal of the submission from IEEE Xplore.

Across all topics (and especially for application papers) successful manuscripts will include sufficient details to reproduce the results presented. Application papers should not just be an implementation of an application on an FPGA, but should show how reconfigurable technology is leveraged by the application, and should ideally contain insights and lessons that can be carried forward into future designs. CAD papers that focus on the configurable nature of custom computing machines
