We had a thrilling five day program, including:

The conference was held using the [OnAir Virtual Conference Platform(attendee guide, presenter guide, FAQ). For each paper a (pre-recorded) presentation video is available. During the conference, each paper was presented with a live lightning talk (5/3 minutes) and plenty of time for questions and discussions. This was recorded and all videos are available in the platform for four weeks after the conference for all registered attendees.


We are proud to announce that attendance was free at FPT’21.


The full proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology (FPT’21) are available on IEEE Xplore.

The journal-track papers are published in ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems (TRETS), Issue 15:1.
