You are most welcome!
This is the second of a series of five seminars bringing together FPGA practitioners, computer science and engineering experts, scientific computing experts, application owners and HPC providers. We will attempt to build a community through which we discuss and evaluate the need and usability of FPGAs in HPC and Scientific Computing. Curious about the first FIRE seminar? Check the blog of SURF.
The series is part of the FIRE symposia and is jointly organised by QBayLogic, SURF and the Hardware Accelleration Network NL.
