Currently submission for PhD/Demo/Contest papers is opened.



FPT 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.



The program committee solicits papers describing original research in field-programmable technology, including, but not limited to, the areas of interest indicated above. In-depth survey papers are also welcome. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format, following the IEEE style. Full papers for oral presentation can be 8 pages of content plus unlimited pages for references. Posters are limited to 4 pages total including references.

Common sense and careful writing can easily preserve anonymity without detracting from the submission. To make your submission double-blind, do not reveal the identity of any author in the text. For example, do not include author names, funding sources, or personal acknowledgments. Do not put your name in the submission document name; do not submit a file called McKinley.pdf whether or not your name is McKinley. Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references. However, limit self-references only to papers that are relevant for reviewing the submitted paper. Always use the third person when referring to your prior work. For example, if you are Smith write: We build on the prior work by Jones and Smith [JS 2003]. Do not reference technical reports (or URLs for downloading versions) of your submission, software, or publications.

By submitting a manuscript to FPT, the authors guarantee that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in a substantially similar form in any conference, journal, or workshop. The only exceptions are (1) workshops without archived proceedings, or (2) venues where there is an explicit policy that such publication does not preclude longer conference submissions. These are not considered prior publications. Technical reports and papers posted on public social media sites, web pages, or online repositories, such as, are not considered prior publications either. In such cases, the submitted manuscript may ignore the above work to preserve author anonymity. However, this information must be provided to the Program Chair(s), who will make it available to reviewers, together with this policy, if it is necessary to ensure a fair review. The authors also guarantee that no paper that contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submitted paper will be under review for any other conference, journal, or workshop during the review period for FPT. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection.

FPT2019 includes a rebuttal phase. Specific questions from reviewers will be made available during the review process. Authors have the option to provide an up to 500-word response within 5 days. Reviewers will consider the responses during final paper deliberations.

The author list cannot be changed after the initial submission. Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliations for double-blined review. Papers that identify authors will NOT be considered. Please use online system for submission.



PhD students are invited to submit four-page papers to PhD Forum at FPT'19, which is a poster-based session for PhD students to present and discuss their research with people in the community of field-programmable technology. The papers will be reviewed and the accepted PhD Forum papers will be included in the conference proceedings. The presenters must bring their own posters for presentation at the forum. The deadline of the PhD forum paper submission is September 20, 2019.

Please check Call for PhD Forum Papers page in details.



We solicit submissions relating to technical demonstrations to be presented at a Demonstration Session. All demonstration proposals should be written up as 4-page papers that detail the goals of the demonstration along with the theory and implementation of the system being demonstrated, and any related results. The papers will be reviewed and the accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings.

Please check Call for Demonstration Papers page in details.



We call for FPGA Design Competition in conjunction with FPT'19. This year's theme is "Autonomous Vehicle Driving Competition using FPGA." Competition entry due is Sep 15.

Please check Contest page in detail.
