ParaFPGA 2009 is a Mini-Symposium on parallel computing with field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), held in conjunction with the ParCo conference on parallel computing. FPGAs allow to map an algorithm directly onto the hardware, optimize the architecture for parallel execution, and dynamically reconfigure the system in between different phases of the computation. Compared to e.g. Cell processors, GPGPU's (general-purpose GPU's) and other high-performance devices, FPGAs are considered as flexible hardware in the sense that the building blocks of one or more single or multiple FPGAs can be interconnected freely to build a highly parallel system. In this Mini-Symposium the following topics are addressed: clustering FPGAs, evolvable hardware using FPGAs and fast dynamic reconfiguration.
