Contribution should all be FPGA-related and be in at least one of the areas listed below.

Following types of contributions:
Contribution A – Industrial, Students or Hackers presentations, with focus on industrial or hackers projects/applications selected by the Industrial Program Committee. Students or hackers can have a demonstration in the hacker’s corner and/or a presentation.  It is not allowed with marketing of a product for profits.
Contribution B – Academic presentations of academic papers selected by the Academic Program Committee. Academic papers accepted for publication will be published by the ACM Digital Libraries.
Contribution C – Product presentations.
Contribution D – Industrial and academic tutorials (1,5-3 hours)
