Customising field programmability
Imperial College London
We have come a long way since the first FPL took place at Oxford in 1991. Various customisations of
field-programmability, particularly in the form of field-programmable gate arrays and reconfigurable
computing systems, have led to many exciting innovations in electronic design and applications.
This talk provides a review of our progress in customizing field-programmability for devices and systems,
and suggests some promising directions for the future.
Wayne Luk is Professor of Computer Engineering at Imperial College London. He founded and leads the
Computer Systems Section and the Custom Computing Group in Department of Computing, and was Visiting Professor
at Stanford University and Queen's University Belfast. His research interests include reconfigurable computing,
field-programmable devices and systems, and design automation. Ten of his papers received awards from the ASAP,
FPL, FPT, SAMOS, SPL and ERSA conferences, and he also won a Research Excellence Award from Imperial College London.
He is a Fellow of the IEEE and the BCS, and is Editor-in-Chief for ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable
Technology and Systems.
