Arnold ([email protected])   This is a formal Request For Discussion (RFD) on the creation of an unmoderated newsgroup, comp.sys.fpga   CHARTER  The unmoderated newsgroup comp.sys.fpga will be open to discussions on all topics related to the use of reconfigurable Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) as computational engines.  Appropriate topics include, but are not limited to,  	system architecture 	FPGA device architecture 	languages and compilation techniques 	tools 	software environments 	applications   RATIONALE  In the past several years interest in FPGA based computing has increased dramatically.  There have now been two IEEE workshops (FCCM'93 and FCCM'94) devoted to this topic, and researchers have been discussing these issues through the internet mailing list "[email protected]" since November 1992.  The mailing list has grown to approximately 300 subscribers worldwide.  The proposed newsgroup is the natural outgrowth of that list.   CROSS POSTINGS  This RFD is being posted to news.groups, news.announce.newgroups, comp.arch, and comp.sys.super.  Discussion will take place in the group "news.groups".  A Call For Votes will be posted in approximately 21 days, after which an independent third party will conduct the vote. --  Jeffrey Arnold, IDA Supercomputing Research Center 17100 Science Dr. Bowie, MD 20715 email: [email protected]		Tel: (301) 805-7479  From [email protected] (RonDippold) Wed Jun 29 16:03:48 1994 Path: uunet!bounce-back From: [email protected] (Ron "Asbestos" Dippold) Newsgroups: news.announce.newgroups,news.groups,comp.arch,comp.lsi,comp.sys.super Subject: CFV: comp.arch.fpga Followup-To: poster Date: 29 Jun 1994 13:27:38 -0400 Organization: Usenet Volunteer Votetakers Lines: 48 Sender: [email protected] Approved: [email protected] Expires: 21 Jul 1994 00:00:00 GMT Message-ID: <[email protected]> References: <[email protected]> Reply-To: [email protected] (Ron Dippold Voting Alias) Xref: uunet news.announce.newgroups:5299 news.groups:107447 comp.arch:50448 comp.lsi:4055 comp.sys.super:3826  		     FIRST CALL FOR VOTES (of 2) 		   unmoderated group comp.arch.fpga  Newsgroups line: comp.arch.fpga		FPGA based reconfigurable computing systems.
