Phd Forum

The PhD Forum at ARC’23 offers PhD students the opportunity to experience the atmosphere of an international conference by presenting their research to the ARC community in a dedicated poster session, and to receive early feedback from experts in the field of reconfigurable computing technologies.

Reconfigurable computing technologies offer the promise of substantial performance gains over traditional architectures via customizing the topology of the underlying architecture to match the specific needs of a given application, even at runtime. Contemporary configurable architectures allow for the definition of architectures with functional and storage units that match in function, bit width, and control structures the specific needs of a given computation. The flexibility enabled by reconfiguration is also seen as a basic technique for overcoming transient failures in emerging device structures. The symposium aims to bring together researchers and practitioners of reconfigurable computing with an emphasis on practical applications of this promising Technology. The conference will be held in the city of Cottbus – Germany, hosted by Brandenburg University of Technology.

Submission Guidelines:

We invite PhD students to submit an extended abstract of their dissertation (maximum 4 pages in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) style) on topics relevant to the ARC community. Student applicants must be enrolled in a PhD program at the time of submission. Master students progressing towards a PhD program may apply, but should meet the same standards as other applicants. Papers should clearly describe the problem and motivation, approach and uniqueness, results, current status, and planned work. Papers based on preliminary results or work in progress are particularly encouraged. Accepted PhD Forum papers require registration for inclusion in the conference proceedings and will be presented in a special poster session. Prior to the poster session, presenters will provide a short “elevator pitch” (2-minute presentation) to support their posters.
