The FIRE Symposia Series FPGA Innovation Research Exchange

High-performance computing and data analytics (HPCDA) are currently driven by an increasing demand for computing and sustainability, which has largely favored GPUs due to their high performance and reasonable energy efficiency. FPGAs offer greater flexibility and energy efficiency, but have received less attention, despite their benefits. Our goal is to create a community to boost the research and use of FPGA technology for HPCDA. The community will unite researchers in HPC, electrical engineering, computational science, data science, and performance engineering, and will collect and explore applications, tools, and best-practices for using FPGAs in HPCDA. To reach this ambitious goal, we proposeĀ FIRE (FPGAĀ InnovationĀ ResearchĀ Exchange), a platform that brings together FPGA experts and potential FPGA users in the Netherlands. The NIRICT grant will be used to organize a series of three technical symposia over a period of 12 months, while a fourth FIRE symposium will mark the launch of theĀ FIREĀ platform, which will materialize as aĀ know-how and know-who repositoryĀ of national FPGA research in HPCDA.
