The major International Conference on Field Programmable Logic and Applications will be held at the conference center of La Grande Motte (Montpellier), France in September 2002. This annual event provides a forum for presenting and discussing trends, emerging results and hot topics on all aspects of FPL including applications, technology and tools.
The twelfth edition is organized by the Microelectronics department of the Laboratory of Informatics, Robotics and Microelectronics of Montpellier (LIRMM) and sponsored by the University of Montpellier, electronic industries and local authorities.

Conference Theme:
Heading Towards the 50 million gate FPGA
New Applications, New EDA Achievements, Test and Verification Issues
