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.

Submissions are solicited on new research results and detailed tutorial
expositions related to field-programmable technologies, including but 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

* Education:
courses, teaching and training experience, experiment equipment, design
and applications.

Application-based papers should emphasize novel design techniques, novel
use of embedded resources, or clearly articulated and measured system
performance benefits.

** Submission Guidelines

FPL 2022, along with ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and
Systems (TRETS) is delighted to announce the first Journal Track in the
event’s history. This is specifically intended for submissions that would
benefit from the longer articles possible in TRETS (up to 32 ACM-style
single-column pages), e.g., for clearer presentation of complex research,
or an in-depth discussion of comprehensive results. Submissions to the
Journal Track that do not take advantage of the additional space offered
by TRETS, or deviate significantly from the TRETS Author Guidelines
(https://dl.acm.org/journal/trets/author-guidelines) will receive the
corresponding feedback early, and can then be revised and entered into the
direct FPL submission process.

* Journal Track Submissions (NEW FOR FPL 2022)

When you decide to submit to the Journal Track, you will use the TRETS
submission system (https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/trets) to submit to
the “FPL 2022 Journal Track” (which you can select after logging into your
TRETS account), and then follow the ACM TRETS Author Guidelines as
described above. Note that the deadline for the FPL Journal Track is
earlier than the deadline for direct FPL submissions. Your submission will
then undergo the regular TRETS review process, and you will be provided
with an initial set of reviewer comments and recommendations as outlined
in the schedule above. If your submission is not rejected here, you will
have sufficient time to revise the submission, and then submit it for a
second round of reviews for inclusion in the Journal Track. You will be
notified of the final decision on your TRETS Journal Track submission
together with the rest of the direct FPL submissions.

Should your Journal Track submission be rejected in the TRETS initial
review, or you feel you cannot fully address the revisions requested by
the TRETS reviewers in the time provided, you may withdraw your submission
from the Journal Track. You then have the option to submit a version of
your paper, shortened according to the rules for regular/short FPL papers,
to enter the regular review process for a direct FPL submission.

If you decide not to submit a revised version in time for the FPL Journal
Track deadline above, or your revised version does not get accepted for
the FPL Journal Track, as decided by the final FPL PC discussions, you may
choose to have a later revision continue as a regular TRETS submission
independently of the conference.

Accepted Journal Track papers will receive a regular presentation slot at
the conference, but will only appear as an abstract in the FPL
proceedings. That abstract will refer to the full publication in TRETS.

* Direct FPL Submissions (Regular FPL papers)

Alongside the Journal Track, FPL seeks full and short papers describing
original research in field-programmable technology, including, but not
limited to, the areas of interest indicated above. Papers should be
submitted electronically in PDF format, following the IEEE style. Full
papers can include up to six pages of content plus up to two pages for
references. Short papers are limited to four pages plus up to two pages of
references. For both kinds of submissions, the total length can be
extended by up to two pages, to be purchased at registration time.

Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliations for
double-blind review. Papers that identify authors will NOT be considered.
Please use the online system for submission. For details, please visit the
FPL’22 website. FPL’22 will also include a rebuttal phase, where the
authors have the opportunity to answer specific questions on their
submission, posed by the reviewers, as well as revise their submission. It
is also planned to invite the best direct submissions to FPL to contribute
to an FPL 2022 Special Issue of ACM TRETS after the conference.

For more details, please visit http://fpl-conference.org

* Artifact Evaluation (NEW FOR FPL 2022)

Also for the first time, FPL will be able to offer the authors of accepted
papers to optionally participate in an artifact evaluation process, aiming
to increase the reproducibility of results. Details on this will be
forthcoming and be described on the FPL web site. Note that participating
in this optional process will not require you to open-source your research

** Call for Workshop/Tutorial proposals

We also call for workshops and tutorials, which will be held in
conjunction with the conference. For details, please visit the
Workshop/Tutorials page.
