Parallel Computing with FPGA's

A mini-symposium held in conjunction with the

ParCo2007 conference "Parallel Computing"

Juelich, Germany, September 4-7, 2007


ParaFPGA-2007 is a mini-symposium held in conjunction with the
Parallel Computing conference, ParCo2007 to be held in Juelich, Germany,
on 4-7 September 2007.


Field programmable logic provides a wealth of opportunities as computing
devices, e.g. as signal processor, systolic element, intellectual property
block, advanced accelerator board and the like. Due to their versatility,
FPGA's are susceptible to several computing paradigms. During the symposium
ParaFPGA one of the major paradigms is addressed: "Parallel Computing with

Because of its adaptability as an enabling component in parallel
architectures, this symposium addresses all areas of FPGA's in parallel
computing, in particular: methodology, performance analysis, architectures,
algorithms and applications.

Therefore you are cordially invited to participate and submit your
contribution to the ParaFPGA symposium. Topics include, but are not limited

- parallel computing techniques with FPGA's

- hardware/software co-design

- programming environments for FPGA's

- parallel languages and design tools for FPGA application development

- interconnection networks

- FPGA arithmetic

- Multi-FPGA cores

- performance evaluation

- embedded FPGA platforms

- FPGA-based parallel applications


Authors are invited to submit a full paper (max. 8 pages) or an extended
abstract (min. 2000 words) using the ParaFPGA server. Details regarding
the format are given on the submission page.

Deadline for the submission is 15 May 2007
