The IEEE 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 24 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

Papers are solicited on the following topics related to Field Programmable
Custom Computing Machines (FCCMs):

1) Abstractions, Architectures, and Programming Models:
– Novel architectural abstractions
– Architectures for high performance and/or low power computing
– New spatial architectures built from components different than traditional
– Security enhancements for reconfigurable computing

2) Languages and Compilers:
– New languages and design frameworks for spatial or heterogeneous
– Tools to make run-time reconfiguration more accessible to application
– Compilation and CAD techniques for reconfigurable and spatial
computing systems

3) Run-Time Systems and Run-Time Reconfiguration:
– Techniques for virtualizing reconfigurable hardware
– Run-time management of reconfigurable hardware
– Fault tolerance for reconfigurable hardware
– Use of reconfigurability to build evolvable or adaptable computing systems
– Novel uses of run-time reconfiguration in application-specific systems
– Implications of run-time reconfiguration on security

4) Applications:
– Applications built using new high level synthesis technologies
– Data center applications
– Applications that utilize reconfigurable technology for performance and
– Comparison of application implementations on different spatial hardware

FCCM will accept 8-page papers for oral presentation and 4-page short papers
for short oral and poster presentation. All submissions should be written in
the English language. An online submission link will be available on the FCCM
website in late December. Papers should use the formatting template linked at
the FCCM website.

Later Deadline for Short Paper Submission:
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.

FCCM uses a double blind reviewing system. Manuscripts must not identify
authors or their affiliations. When referencing their own papers, authors are
encouraged to do so in a way in which they do not identify themselves as
authors. References that clearly identify the authors (for example, “We build
on our previous work…”) should be shown as “Removed for blind review”.
Papers that identify authors will not be considered.

FCCM 2015 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 2015. Send in your
best work for consideration!
