FPL 2022 CALL FOR PhD Forum/Demo Night
The 32nd International Conference on Field-Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL)
Aug 29 to Sep 2, 2022 @ Belfast, Northern Ireland, UK

Submission deadline: June 01, 2022
Notification: June 15th 2022
Camera-Ready Deadline: June 27th 2022

The International Conference on Field-Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL) was the first and remains the largest covering the rapidly growing area of field-programmable logic and reconfigurable computing. Field-programmable devices promise the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware and have become an important area of research and development in high-performance computing systems, embedded and low-power control instruments, mobile communications, rapid prototyping and product emulation, among other areas. For the last 31 years, FPL has seen the first unveiling of the latest and most significant works in reconfigurable architectures, applications, embedded processors and design automation. FPL2022 will bring together academic and industrial researchers and practitioners from across the globe. It will offer a hybrid format, with the entire conference accessible both in-person and online.

The FPL 2022 PhD Forum is an excellent occasion for PhD students to present their work in progress or preliminary results, and receive early feedback from senior researchers and experts in the domain. Moreover, it is a unique opportunity for PhD students, whether fresh or close to completion, to give a broad overview of their work and draw attention to it from both the academic and industrial worlds.

PhD Forum authors are invited to submit 2-page papers using the same format as FPL 2022 regular papers before the deadline of June 1st, 2022 through the EasyChair submission system:

PhD Forum papers should include clear descriptions of the project’s motivation, objectives, problem definition, addressed solutions, current status, and planned work if applicable. Contributions based on preliminary results or on work in progress are particularly encouraged. Accepted PhD Forum papers require a registration for being included in the conference proceedings and will be presented at a special poster session in conjunction with the FPL Demo Night. Therefore, PhD forum presenters can optionally provide a demo along with the poster presentation. Prior to the forum, presenters will endorse their posters through a short “elevator pitch” (2‐minute presentation).

The FPL 2022 Demo Night is an opportunity to demonstrate and disseminate exciting work at the biggest annual gathering of experts in the field. Bring your demo to FPL and increase your visibility, interact with attendees, impress the FPL community and make a real impact. Demonstrations may include, but are not limited to, academic or commercial experiments, prototypes, tools, platforms, systems, and applications. This year, we are particularly inviting open-source contributions. Academic presenters must register for the conference and presenters from industry, must sign up for one of the on-site sponsor packages. Demo Night presenters are invited to submit a demo description through the EasyChair submission system by June 1st, 2022 providing the following information:

  • Demo Title
  • Names, affiliations, and email addresses (if different from the EasyChair information)
  • Description of the demo, its main objectives and its relevance to the FPL community
  • Short biographies of demo presenters
  • Any logistical requirements the demonstration may have (Internet access, screens, etc.)

Optionally, each submission may include a one-page abstract using the FPL 2022 regular papers format on a separate page. The abstract must state a technical contribution and will appear in the proceedings subject to passing a review process (pure marketing will be rejected). Abstract titles must start with “FPL Demo: …”

You are welcome to use those email addresses of the PhD Forum and Demo Night chairs for informal queries.
