We congratulate Vikas Aggarwal, Alan D. George, Kishore Yalamanchili, Changil Yoon, Herman Lam, and Greg Stitt, the winners of the 2009 OpenFPGA Award, for their work on Bridging Parallel and Reconfigurable Computing with Multilevel PGAS and SHMEM+.
The OpenFPGA Award for Advancement in Industry Standards in Reconfigurable Computing recognizes the workshop paper/presentation that exemplifies and advances efforts to develop portable applications on reconfigurable computing systems.
Held in conjunction with SC09
November 15, 2009
High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (HPRC) based on the combination of conventional microprocessors and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) is a rapidly evolving computing paradigm that offers a potential to accelerate computationally intensive scientific applications beyond of what is possible on today's mainstream HPC systems. The academic community has been actively investigating this technology for the past decade and the technology has proven itself to be practical for a number of HPC applications. Many of the HPC vendors are now offering various HPRC solutions.
Workshop on High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing Technology and Applications (HPRCTA'09) will bring together domain scientists and technology developers from industry and academia to present and discuss new research on the use of field-programmable gate array technologies for high performance reconfigurable computing. The workshop is co-organized by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the George Washington University, and OpenFPGA.
