                                                           (12/04/92)
      IEEE Workshop on FPGAs for Custom Computing Machines

   April 5-7, 1993    The Inn at Napa Valley, Napa, California

PURPOSE:
To bring together researchers interested in the use of Field Programmable
Gate Arrays as computing elements to present recent work.  While papers
of a theoretical nature are welcomed, it is anticipated that this
workshop will focus primarily on the current opportunities and problems
in this new and evolving technology for computing.  A proceedings will
be published by the IEEE Computer Society; this workshop is sponsored
by the IEEE Computer Society and the TC on Computer Architecture.

SHORT PAPERS OR ABSTRACTS (10 pages) SHOULD BE SUBMITTED BEFORE
JANUARY 9, 1993 TO ONE OF THE TWO CONFERENCE CO-CHAIRS.

SOLICITATION::
Papers are solicited on all aspects of the use or applications of
(usually multiple) FPGAs as (usually reconfigurable) computing
elements in attached or special purpose processors or coprocessors,
especially including but not limited to
*** coprocessor boards for augmenting the instruction set of
    general purpose computers;
*** attached processors for specific purposes (e.g. signal
    processing) or general purposes;
*** languages for programming FPGA-based computers;
*** tools and environments for programming FPGA-based computers;
*** application domains suitable for FPGA-based computers;
*** architecture emulation using FPGA-based computers.

There also will be panel discussions including representatives from
major vendors on future software and hardware for FPGA based systems.

Individuals wishing to be put on an email list for further information
about this workshop should send email with name, regular mail address,
and email address to Duncan Buell.
