20th International Conference
on Field Programmable Logic and Applications
Milano, ITALY, Aug. 31st - Sep. 2nd, 2010

PhD Forum

The goal of the forum is to enable PhD students to present their work and get feedback from experienced researchers and industrial partners. Accepted contributions will be published in the proceedings, provided their authors will present their work in a special poster session during the conference.

Eligibility Conditions

Eligible students must fulfill the following conditions:

  • Minimum 1 year of experience in a PhD program
  • PhD not completed at the time of submission
  • University approved thesis proposal or 1 published paper
  • No publication at the PhD forum at earlier FPL conferences

Authors are welcome to submit regular papers in addition to PhD forum papers as long as the two do not describe overlapping results. We intend the forum to be a means to describe new research directions as well as provide a means for early stage PhD students to present preliminary work at the conference.

Financial Support

Selected PhD students will have a reduced registration fee.

Paper Formatting

PhD forum camera ready must follow the FPL paper formatting instructions, with an expected length of 4 pages. It is also possible to purchase up to 2 extra pages.

Papers should be prepared using the guidelines and templates available at this web site: http://www.ieeeconfpublishing.org/cpir/AuthorKit.asp?Community=CPS&Facility=CPS_Aug&ERoom=FPL+2010
