So, who has the most FPGA, FCCM, FPL, and FPT papers?

DBLP is an online database of academic publications in computer science and related fields. Handily, it provides a Java API for accessing the data programmatically. In this blog post, I share a few fun facts I discovered while using this API to explore the data that DBLP holds about four conferences on FPGA technology; namely, FPGA (up to the 2019 edition), FCCM (up to 2018), FPL (up to 2018), and FPT (up to 2017).

The numbers were generated on 19 May 2019, and the code I wrote to generate them is available on GitHub.

NB: A “paper” is anything listed in the conference’s proceedings on DBLP. This includes keynote presentations, short papers, posters, editorships, and regular papers.

    1. I’ve now added FCCM, FPL and FPT. Funny how there’s so much difference between the F-conferences — I assumed the results would have been pretty much the same!

    1. I invented reconfigurable computing in 1959 when I moved my abacus from one side of my bedroom to the other.
