Location: Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA
Conference Dates: May 3 – May 6, 2020

The IEEE Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines 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. Over the past two decades, FCCM has been the place to present papers on architectures, tools, and programming models for field-programmable custom computing machines as well as applications that use such systems.

Call for Papers

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. Submissions are solicited on the following topics related to Field Programmable Custom Computing Machines (FCCMs) including, but not limited to:

Architectures

Novel reconfigurable architectures, including overlay architectures
Architectures for high performance and/or low power computing
Security assessment and enhancements for reconfigurable computing
Specialized memory systems including volatile, non-volatile, and hybrid memory subsystems
Emerging technologies with in-field reconfiguration abilities
Clusters, data centers, or large systems of reconfigurable devices
Heterogeneous programmable architectures
Abstractions, Programming Models, and Tools

Abstractions, programming models, interfaces, 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)
Customizable soft processors systems
Reconfiguration

Run-time management of reconfigurable hardware
System resilience/fault tolerance for reconfigurable hardware
Evolvable, adaptable, or autonomous reconfigurable computing systems
Security assessment and enhancement of run-time reconfiguration
Applications

Data center or cluster with reconfigurable applications
New uses of run-time reconfiguration in applications-specific systems
Applications that utilize reconfigurable technology for performance and efficiency, and particularly submissions that make comparisons with other highly parallel architectures such as GPUs or DSPs
Novel use of state-of-the-art commercial FPGAs

Paper Formats:

Long papers for oral presentation can be 8 pages of content plus unlimited pages for references. Short papers with short oral presentations are limited to 4 pages of content with unlimited pages for references. Authors are encouraged to submit preliminary work using the 4-page format. This category is intended for new projects and early results or work that can be concisely presented in the 4-page budget. Do not submit the same work to both streams. Submissions accepted as posters will have a 1-page extended abstract.

This category is intended for new projects and early results or work that can be concisely presented in the 4-page budget. Do not submit the same work to both streams. Submissions accepted as posters will have a 1-page extended abstract.

All submissions should be written in English. An online submission link will be available on the FCCM website at https://www.fccm.org. Papers must conform to the US letter-sized IEEE conference proceedings format to be reviewed and published. A conformant LaTeX template is available here and a Microsoft Word template is available here. Overleaf users can find the LaTeX template here.

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 [citation]”. Do not put a “deleted for double-blind” entry in the reference section.

In the case of widely-available Open Source software, authors should cite 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. Note that there are resources to blind open-source repositories for review such as: https://github.com/tdurieux/anonymous_github. 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. Placing a preliminary version of the unpublished paper on arXiv is not disqualifying, but it is also not encouraged; just because a paper can be unblinded by active search will not undermine the spirit of the double-blind review. Artifacts, including open-source designs and tools are encouraged; if there are questions about how to handle blind-review, contact the program chair.

FCCM 2020 includes a rebuttal phase. Specific questions from reviewers will be made available by February 2nd. Authors have the option to provide an up to 500-word response by February 7th. Reviewers will consider the responses during final paper deliberations.

Simultaneous Submissions:
Papers must not be simultaneously under review or waiting to appear at another conference or in a journal, and must not be essentially the same as any paper that has been previously published. If a paper contains text or technical content that is similar to a previously published or submitted paper, that other paper should be cited in the FCCM submission, and the differences should be made clear.

Reviewer Conflicts

Authors must register any program committee conflicts as they submit their paper. Conflicts can include those that have co-authored a paper in the past 3 years, those that have current or recent shared institutional affiliation, or other situations in which the relationship would prevent a reviewer from being objective. Note that if an undeclared conflict is discovered, or a conflict is declared in an attempt to “game” the review process, the submission may be rejected. If you believe you may have a conflict with the program chair, please contact the program chair well in advance of the submission deadline.

Best Paper Award and a Special Section for the Best FCCM 2020 Papers in ACM TRETS:

FCCM 2020 will continue the tradition of having a best long and short 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 2020.

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 (e.g., full part numbers, software versions). 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. Additional suggestions and guidelines are available on www.fccm.org. See the ACM/TCFPGA Hall-of-Fame (hof.tcfpga.org) and the set of previous FCCM Best Paper winners (wiki.tcfpga.org/FCCMBest) for outstanding examples of FCCM papers.

Questions

Questions about this call, submissions, and potential submissions should be directed to the program chair, Ken Eguro.
