Submissions are solicited which explore the state of the art in the use of FPGAs in heterogeneous high-performance compute architectures and, at a system level, in data centers and supercomputers. FPGAs may be considered from either or both the distributed, parallel and composable fabric of compute elements or from their dynamic reconfigurability. We especially encourage submissions which not only consider the implementation of algorithms and applications in FPGAs but concretely relate this to the heterogeneous compute model consisting of differently functioned cooperating compute elements and the overall impact of such architectures on the compute capacity, cost and power efficiency, and computational capabilities of data centers and supercomputers. Submissions may report on theoretical or applied research, implementation case studies, benchmarks, standards, or any other area that promises to make a significant contribution to our understanding of heterogeneous high-performance reconfigurable computing and will help to shape future research and implementations in this domain. A non-comprehensive list of potential topics of interest is given below:
