FPT Conference

The FPT conference is the premier conference in the Asia-Pacific region on field-programmable technologies including reconfigurable computing devices and systems containing such components. Field-programmable devices promise the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware. The development and application of field-programmable technology have become important topics of research and development. Field-programmable technology is widely applied, in high-performance computing systems, embedded and low-power control instruments, mobile communications, rapid prototyping and product emulation, among other areas.

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 for field-programmable technology including 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 including 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 for field-programmable logic 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 of field-programmable technology including 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 for field-programmable technology including courses, teaching and training experience, experiment equipment, design and applications.

Note that simply implementing an application using an FPGA is not considered a sufficient research contribution. Application-based papers should emphasize novel design techniques, novel use of embedded resources, or clearly articulated and measured system performance benefits.

Submission Guidelines

FPT’23 is grateful to the ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems (TRETS) for enabling us to offer a Journal Track in addition to regular and short papers directly submitted to the Conference Track of FPT. The Journal Track 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, will receive the corresponding feedback early, and can then be revised and entered into the direct submission process of the Conference Track. Details are available at FPT’23 WEB site:

ChatGPT Policy

FPT 2023 allows the use of tools such as ChatGPT, Grammarly, and other AI assistants to help improve submissions. We recommend that you review your submission for English language usage by means of such services. However, it is not required that you make use of such services, and you should judge whether the results are satisfactory. Authors must disclose their use of such tools, including details on which tools were used and the extent of their use. Use of such tools to generate content, hide plagiarism or change the meaning of content is prohibited, and may result in sanctions, not necessarily limited to the rejection of your submission.

Author Registration

Note that each paper shall be accompanied by at least one different conference registration at the author's registration rate (e.g., two author registrations are needed for presenting two accepted papers). But any registered co-author can present the work at the conference.

Journal Track Submissions

When you decide to submit to the Journal Track, you will use the TRETS submission system to submit to the “FPT’23 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 FPT Journal Track is earlier than the deadline for direct FPT 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 FPT 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 FPT papers, to enter the regular review process for a direct FPT submission.

If you decide not to submit a revised version in time for the FPT Journal Track deadline above, or your revised version would need another round of revision, as decided by the final FPT PC discussions, you may choose to have an eventual later revision continue as a regular TRETS submission, independently of the FPT conference.

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

Direct FPT Submissions

For direct submission to the FPT conference, the program committee solicits 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 8 pages of content, plus unlimited pages for references. Short papers are limited to 4 pages in total, including references.

Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliations for double-blind review. Papers that identify authors will NOT be considered. Please use Easychair for submission. For details, please visit the FPT’23 website.

FPT’23 will also include a rebuttal phase, where the authors have the opportunity to answer specific questions on their submission, posed by the reviewers.

Artifact Evaluation

Please follow the instructions in Artifact Evaluation page.

Ph.D. Forum

Ph.D. students are invited to submit four-page papers to the Ph.D. Forum at FPT'23, which is a poster-based session for Ph.D. students to present and discuss their research with people in the community of field-programmable technology. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format following the IEEE style, and will be reviewed by members of the FPT program committee. Accepted Ph.D. Forum papers will be included in the conference proceedings. Authors of accepted papers will be asked to prepare a poster presentation at the forum.

Demo Night

The FPT'23 Demo Night Session is an opportunity to demonstrate and discuss exciting works with people in the community of field-programmable technology. Demonstrations may include, but are not limited to, academic or commercial experiments, prototypes, tools, platforms, systems, and applications. All demonstration proposals should be written up as two-page papers that detail the objectives and goals of the demonstration, along with abstract describing its technical contributions.

Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format following the IEEE style, and will be reviewed by committee members. Accepted Demo Night papers will be included in the conference proceedings.
