Session F: Birds of a Feather: Reconfigurable Computing

Session Chairs:
Alan Hunsberger, National Security Agency
Douglas Fouts, Naval Postgraduate School

Thursday, September 9, Starting at 8:00 am
Hemisphere A

Session F will be in an informal workshop format and will be open to all MAPLD attendees. The session will be in two parts as detailed below.

Part 1 will consist of DARPA-like "Quad Chart" presentations on the reconfigurable computing related poster papers. These will be fast-moving presentations with each speaker having two minutes. An open Q&A session will follow for questions related to the quad charts or any other topic of interest.

Part 2 will be a panel session with five vendors of high performance reconfigurable computing machines:

Each vendor will have ten minutes for a presentation on their hardware and software (no questions from the audience). Following the five presentations, the floor will be open for audience questions. The questions will be addressed to all five vendors and each vendor will have up to two minutes to answer (as an example, a question might be "What commercial applications do you see as your market niche?")
