Compiler Optimizations for FPGA-based Systems: IEEE Transactions on Computers Special Issue

by João Cardoso, Sept. 4, 2020

IEEE Transactions on Computers seeks original manuscripts for a special issue on Compiler Optimizations for FPGA-based Systems scheduled to appear in July 2021

Special issue webpage: https://www.computer.org/digital-library/journals/tc/call-for-papers-special-issue-on-compiler-optimizations-for-fpga-based-systems

With this special issue, we intend to show and disseminate recent, state-of-the-art, techniques, from programming languages to compilers and tooling support, for high-level programming Reconfigurable Computing systems.

We especially welcome accompanying open-source and artifacts associated with the articles.

Besides the special issue, we intend to promote a new model consisting of a presentation of each article as a talk (virtual), with a goal to connect the authors to potential readers, and an accompanying video resultant from the talk. In this way we will increase the potential to disseminate the recent achievements and will contribute to discussions around the topics of each article.

Scope of the Special Issue and Topics

Reconfigurable computing (RC), and especially its implementation using FPGAs, is becoming of paramount importance in many computing domains and systems, from embedded, mobile to cloud and high-performance computing. Programming of RC-based systems has advanced, but more advancements are needed, especially efficient techniques for automatic mapping of computations described in high-level languages to the RC resources. With this special issue, we intend to show and disseminate recent, state-of-the-art, techniques, from programming languages to compilers and tooling support, for high-level programming RC systems.

The topics of the special issue include:

·       Mapping from Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs)
·       High-Level Synthesis (HLS) approaches and techniques
·  Source-to-source compilers and techniques targeting RC systems
·  Approaches and techniques for autotuning compiler and hardware optimizations
·  Tools and techniques for hardware specialization and approximate computing
·       JIT compilers for RC systems
·  Disruptive approaches for mapping computations to RC systems

We especially welcome accompanying open-source and artifacts associated with the articles.

Besides the special issue, we intend to promote a new model consisting of a presentation of each article as a talk (virtual), with a goal to connect the authors to potential readers, and an accompanying video resultant from the talk. In this way we will increase the potential to disseminate the recent achievements and will contribute to discussions around the topics of each article.

Submitted papers must include new significant research-based technical contributions in the scope of the journal. Papers under review elsewhere are not acceptable for submission. Extended versions of published conference papers (to be included as part of the submission together with a summary of differences) are welcome, but there must have at least 40% new impacting technical/scientific material in the submitted journal version and there should be less than 50% verbatim similarity level as reported by a tool (such as CrossRef). Guidelines concerning the submission process and LaTeX and Word templates can be found at https://www.computer.org/csdl/journal/tc/write-for-us/15066?title=Author Information&periodical=IEEE Transactions on Computers. While submitting through ScholarOne, at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tc-cs, please select this special issue/section option. As per TC policies, only full-length papers (12 pages) can be submitted to special issues/sections and each author’s bio should not exceed 150 words.
