FPGA-forum 2021 Master thesis award

Onsdag 17. februar kl. 16:00 til 17:00 på Zoom:


NOTE: This event will be in English to allow both candidates to understand everything.
The event is free and we do of course hope to gather people from both the industry and academia.

There will be no FPGA-forum in 2021, but we decided to run the Master thesis award, as we see this as an important encouragement to write FPGA-related master’s thesises, and thus we can of course not skip 2021,,,

We have the following approximate agenda for this event:
16:00 Welcome – with a brief status from the industry
16:15 Introduction of nominated master’s thesis and the assessment committee
16:20 Announcement and presentation of the award
16:25 Interview with award winner and supervisor
16:30 Video presentation w/ Q&A
16:45 Exchange of experience on FPGA teaching and master’s thesis completion during the pandemic
17:00 End

There are two candidates (completed in 2020):
Kristina Thue: “Accelerating compact CNN models for image segmentation using Vivado HLS”
Mohamed Ismail: “HW/SW Co-design Implementation of Hyperspectral Image Classification Algorithm”

Both at the Institute for electronic systems at NTNU, and both supervised by associate professor Milica Orlandic.

Hope to “see” you there.
