The 18th Annual International IEEE Symposium on
Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines

Embassy Suites, Concord, Charlotte North Carolina
Conference dates: May 2-4, 2010
Submission deadline: January 12, 2010
Approximate decision: February 23, 2010

The IEEE Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines is
a forum to present and discuss new research on the use of
reconfigurable computing, spatial computing, and application-specific
architectures that exploit the unique features of FPGAs and other
reconfigurable hardware. Of particular interest are papers in these
areas that emphasize high-performance and/or low-energy
computation. This conference focuses on a wide variety of topics
related to custom computing, and seeks submissions from the following
main areas:


* Architectures for high-performance and/or low-power configurable
* New spatial architectures with immense parallelism but different
basic components than FPGAs
* System-level architectures for reconfigurable computing in either
real-time or non-real-time systems
* Hybrid architectures that integrate a mix of coarse, fine,
special-purpose, and general-purpose hardware
* Implications and effects of nanotechnology on reconfigurable
computing (and vice versa)

Languages and Compilers

* New languages and development environments to describe spatial or
hybrid applications
* Tools to make run-time reconfiguration more accessible to
application designers
* Compilation and CAD techniques for reconfigurable computing systems
and other spatial computers Run-Time Systems and Run-Time
* Operating system techniques to manage run-time reconfiguration of
resources in reconfigurable computing or spatial computing systems
* Run-time CAD algorithms to support the above techniques or improve
fault tolerance/avoidance
* Use of reconfigurability to build evolvable or adaptable computing
* Novel uses of run-time reconfiguration in application-specific


* Novel applications that use reconfigurability to customize hardware
for scientific computation, mobile communications, medical image
processing, data and communication security, network infrastructure
and other embedded systems
* Comparison of application implementations on different spatial
hardware, such as GPGPUs, multi-core processors, and FPGAs.

Open-Source Tools and Applications

This year we particularly encourage papers introducing CAD tools,
compilers, benchmark libraries, and/or benchmark circuits that are
open source and publicly available. To be considered under this
heading, submissions must include a web link to the source accessible
by the reviewers, and make the source publicly-available upon
acceptance. For these papers, evaluation will be based more on the
usefulness to the community than research novelty. Submissions

FCCM solicits both 8-page full paper and 4-page short paper
submissions. All submissions should be written in the English
language, and are due by January 12th, 2010 through the online
submission link that will be available on the FCCM website starting in
late December, 2009. Authors will be notified by February 25th. Papers
should use the formatting template linked at the FCCM website.
