			REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION

              Group Name:  comp.sys.fpga
                  Status:  unmoderated
            Distribution:  world wide
                 Summary:  Discussions related to FPGA based computing systems
             Proposed by:  Jeffrey M. 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.
