Every year we organize a free symposium on some hot topic in computer science. Previous editions explored such subjects as modern processor architectures, new trends in compiler technology, Java and embedded systems ... The goal of the symposia is to reach a broad audience while still providing sufficient technical depth to satisfy everyone. The next edition of our symposium focuses on the future of configurable hardware. This one-day symposium is free and open to all.


o André DeHon, California Institute of Technology: 'Compute Models, System Architectures, and Design Patterns for Reconfigurable Computing' o Bingfeng Mei, IMEC: 'ADRES Reconfigurable Architecture and Its Compilation Techniques' o Mike Hutton, Altera: 'The Design of Modern FPGA Architectures' o Steve Wilton, University of British Columbia: 'Power-Aware Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Techniques for FPGAs' o Jos Huisken, Silicon Hive (Philips Research): 'Design Methodology for ANSI-C Programmable Co-Processors' o Adam Donlin, Xilinx: 'New Tools for FPGA Dynamic Reconfiguration' o Johan Van Praet, Target Compiler Technologies: 'Design of Application-Specific Instruction-Set Processors using a Retargetable Compilation Flow'
