CC Chair at the FPL'22 Conference
The International Conference on Field-Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL) was the first and remains the largest conference on field-programmable logic and reconfigurable computing, and the 32nd edition of the FPL Conference was hosted by Queen's University Belfast, UK, from the 29th of August to the 2nd of September. Two members of the CC Chair participated in this edition presenting the results of their work. On the 31st of August, João Paulo presented "Data and Computation reuse of CNN in Memristor TCAMs" as a regular paper at the main event. His paper explores data repetition and similarities in image and video recognition tasks, in which ternary content-addressable memories are used to retrieve previously computed activation values. On the 1st of September, Karl Friebel delivered his talk entitled "Creating reusable MLIR abstractions for heterogeneous systems" at the 3rd Workshop on DevOps Support for Cloud FPGA platforms (DevOps). In this talk, Karl shares his experiences with MLIR for heterogeneous systems and shows how his current dialect stack for high-performance reconfigurable systems creates composable, reusable tool flows.
