Introduction to BLE system design using PSoC 6MCUs

Date: Dec 14, Half day (afternoon)
Topic: Development with a hands-on lab using PSoC 6 BLE for IoT node
Organizer(s): Patrick Kane, Cypress Semiconductor Corp.
Type: Hands on tutorial WS
Details: The proposed workshop will introduce attendees to available development kits suitable for education and will include a hands-on lab using PSoC 6 BLE – based development kit to create and program a BLE enabled development kit thus creating a simple IoT node. The ultra-low-power PSoC 6 MCU architecture offers the processing performance needed by IoT devices. The PSoC 6 MCU contains a dual-core architecture, with both cores on a single chip. It has an Arm® Cortex®-M4 for high-performance tasks, and an Arm® Cortex®-M0+ for low-power tasks, and with security built-in, your IoT system is protected.

Embedded Machine Learning: Technology and Opportunities

Date: Dec 14, Half day (afternoon)
Topic: Embedded machine learning discussion with specialists
Organizer(s): David Boland and Philip Leong
Type: Tutorial WS
Details: This workshop will provide a forum to discuss technical challenges and product opportunities for applying deep learning within embedded systems that take advantage of the energy and latency benefits offered by field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).

Accelerate real-time high definition video processing designs with Digilent Zybo Z7, a Zynq-7000 AP SoC Platform and Xilinx Vivado HLS

Date: Dec 14
Topic: Hands-on tutorial using a Zynq FPGA
Organizer(s): Digilent
Type: Hands-on tutorial WS
Details: It is a hands-on tutorial using a Zynq FPGA with HLS to design a streaming hardware.

Call for Workshop Proposals

We closed the call for workshop proposals.

Following the success from previous editions, FPT 2018 will host several workshops on December 11th & 15th, 2018. We are soliciting proposals for new and recurring workshops to be organized with FPT 2018, as they provide excellent opportunities to bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities to share their experiences in an interactive atmosphere, and to foster collaboration for new and innovative projects. We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the broad set of Architectures and Technology, Applications and Benchmarks, Design Methods and Tools, Self-aware and Adaptive Systems, and Trends and Education before the deadline of March 16, 2018 (extended)

We strongly encourage workshops that focus on innovative and original ideas related to the core topics of FPT. Organizers can choose between invited presentations (to be listed at the time of submission), open call for papers, or a combination of both. Any other forms of interaction with the audience - panels, demo's, posters - are of course welcome, as we see workshops providing as many and dynamic forms of engaging the audience as possible.

For workshops that do include an open call for papers, we point out that the organizers are in charge of setting up the submission, review, and camera-ready management processes. The organizers must also indicate what their expectation for the workshop is (papers submitted, papers accepted).

Workshop organizers are free to arrange the publication of their workshop papers independently. FPT 2018 does not provide workshop proceedings, but may consider including the workshop papers on the conference website, as long as the workshop organizers can provide their final papers in time.
