The Second IEEE International Conference on

Field-Programmable Technology (FPT'03)

First Call for Papers

Venue: The The University of Tokyo, JAPAN
December 15-17, 2003


Field-programmable technologies, including complex programmable logic devices and systems containing such components, have become an important topic of research for universities, government, and industry worldwide. Field-programmable devices combine the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware. Their regular structure facilitates rapid improvement in density, capability and speed. Field-programmable systems have a wide variety of applications, such as accelerating computations in molecular biology and medical imaging, low-power control and data processing for palm-size computers, and emulating novel electronic products before manufacture; even advanced microprocessors from Intel and ARM have benefited from field-programmable hardware emulators.
The areas of interest of this conference include the following:



The program committee solicits 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 should not exceed 8 pages in length, while posters should not exceed 2 pages in length. Submission guidelines and instructions will be available from
