Welcome to OLAF

The second workshop on overlay architectures for FPGA (OLAF) will be co-located with FPGA'16.  OLAF'16 will be set as a half day workshop to gather researchers in the community to exchange their knowledge and to explore ideas on the use of overlay architectures on FPGA devices.

OLAF was started in response to the growing interest in utilizing virtual coarse-grain architectures overlaying on top of fine-grained FPGA devices for sake of improved designer productivity, debugging capability, design portability, security, and more. As the complexity of FPGA platforms continue to grow exponentially, it is anticipated that the use of overlay architectures on FPGAs will eventually become mainstream practice.

The 2016 edition of OLAF will feature presentation of peer-reviewed papers and a panel discussion on the future of overlays.
