The International Conference on Field Programmable Logic and Applications (FPL) is the first and largest conference covering the rapidly growing area of field-programmable logic. During the past 23 years, many of the advances achieved in reconfigurable system architectures, applications, embedded processors, design automation methods (EDA) and tools have been first published in the proceedings of the FPL conference series. Its objective is to bring together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry from all over the world.

The 24th FPL conference will be hosted by the Technical University of Munich, Germany, on September 2 - 4, 2014. Tutorials and associated workshops are offered on September 1 and 5. FPL 2014 has a technical focus towards: “Dependable, power efficient FPGA accelerators and heterogeneous computing platforms for HPC and embedded / cyber physical systems”.
