FPT is the premier conference in the Asia-Pacific region on field-
programmable technologies including reconfigurable computing devices
and systems containing such components. Field-programmable devices
promise the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware.
The development and application of field-programmable technology have
become important topics of research and development. Field-programmable
technology is widely applied, in high-performance computing systems,
embedded and low-power control instruments, mobile communications,
rapid prototyping and product emulation, among other areas.

Submissions are solicited on new research results and detailed tutorial
expositions related to field-programmable technologies, including but
not limited to:

* Tools and Design techniques for field-programmable technology
including placement, routing, synthesis, verification, debugging,
runtime support, technology mapping, partitioning, parallelization,
timing optimization, design and run-time environments, high-level
synthesis (HLS) compilers, languages and modeling techniques,
provably-correct development, intellectual property core-based design,
domain-specific development, hardware/software co-design.

* Architectures for field-programmable technology including field-
programmable gate arrays, complex programmable logic devices, coarse-
grained reconfigurable arrays, field-programmable interconnect,
field-programmable analogue arrays, field-programmable arithmetic
arrays, memory architectures, interface technologies, low-power
techniques, adaptive devices, reconfigurable computing systems,
high-performance reconfigurable systems, evolvable hardware and
adaptive computing, fault tolerance and avoidance.

* Device technology for field-programmable logic including
programmable memories such as non-volatile, dynamic and static memory
cells and arrays, interconnect devices, circuits and switches, and
emerging VLSI device technologies.

* Applications of field-programmable technology including
accelerators for biomedical/scientific/neuro-morphic computing and
machine learning, network processors, real-time systems, rapid
prototyping, hardware emulation, digital signal processing,
interactive multimedia, machine vision, computer graphics, cryptography,
robotics, manufacturing systems, embedded applications, evolvable and
biologically-inspired hardware.

* Education for field-programmable technology including courses,
teaching and training experience, experiment equipment, design and

Note that simply implementing an application using an FPGA is not
considered a sufficient research contribution. Application-based
papers should emphasize novel design techniques, novel use of embedded
resources, or clearly articulated and measured system performance

Submission Guidelines:
The program committee solicits papers describing original research in
field-programmable technology, including, but not limited to, the areas
of interest indicated above. Papers should be submitted electronically
in PDF format, following the IEEE style. Full papers should not exceed 8
pages in length, while posters should not exceed 4 pages in length.
Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliations for double-
blined review. Papers that identify authors will NOT be considered.
Please use online system for submission. For details, please visit the
FPT'18 WEB site.

Call for PhD Forum Papers:
PhD students are invited to submit four-page papers to PhD Forum at
FPT'18, which is a poster-based session for PhD students to present and
discuss their research with people in the community of field-programmable
technology. The papers will be reviewed and the accepted PhD Forum papers
will be included in the conference proceedings. The presenters must bring
their own posters for presentation at the forum. The deadline of the PhD
forum paper submission will be in September (date: TBA).

Call for FPGA Design Competition:
We call for FPGA Design Competition in conjunction with FPT'18.
This year's theme is "Autonomous Vehicle Driving Competition using FPGA."
Competition entry due is Sep 15. Details are available at FPT WEB site.
