On December 6th, 2023, SURF in Utrecht successfully organized the second edition of FIRE FPGA symposium along with the hardware acceleration community. This is the continuation of the “FIRE: FPGA Innovation Research Exchange“ event series. The focus of this event was on application development using HW-SW co-design approaches. The event addressed the challenge of optimizing applications on heterogeneous CPU-accelerator systems to achieve full system optimization.
We had a number of speakers from industry, academia and research institutes. In addition, we organized a session with 5-minute flash presentations, where many researchers and companies presented their innovations and products at a high pace to engender collaboration and information exchange.
