Call for Workshops, Tutorials, and Special Sessions

We would be delighted to receive proposals for workshops, tutorials and special sessions to be held at FPL 2022. These events provide excellent opportunities to bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities to share their experiences in an interactive atmosphere, and to foster collaboration for new and innovative projects.

Proposals may be for successors of events that have been held in previous years, or for brand new events this year. Proposals should be submitted through the EasyChair submission system

FPL will be a hybrid conference, including face-to-face, hybrid or fully-virtual workshops/tutorials on Thursday, September 1 and Friday, September 2.

Suitable topics for event proposals include (but are not limited to):

  • Tools and Design Techniques: 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: 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: 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: 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: courses, teaching and training experience, experiment equipment, design and applications.

For inspiration, you might like to consult the list of workshops and tutorials that were held at FPL last year:

If you would like to propose an event, please prepare a 2-page proposal that includes:

  1. Title of the proposed event
  2. Preferred date
  3. Preferred mode (face-to-face, fully virtual, or hybrid)
  4. Preferred duration (half-day or full-day) and tentative schedule
  5. Any resources required (e.g. “a room with wifi”, “a computer lab”)
  6. Names, affiliations, and contact information for event organiser(s)
  7. Short biography of the organiser(s)
  8. Scope and topics of the event
  9. Rationale: why is the topic timely and important? Why would it be of interest to FPL attendees?
  10. Names of potential speakers at the event

If you are proposing a hybrid event, please also briefly explain how you plan to ensure that virtual participants are involved. To help with this, workshop organisers will have access to the same web-based hybrid-conference platform as the main conference.

Please submit your proposal as a single PDF file through the EasyChair submission system. The submission deadline is 8 June 2022.

You are welcome to contant FPL 2022 Workshop chairs through the below email addresses for informal queries.

Best wishes, and we look forward to reading your proposals!
