Zhili Xiong Wins Best Paper Award at FCCM

Zhili Xiong

Zhili Xiong, a Ph.D. student in Texas ECE, recently received the Best Paper Award at the 32nd IEEE International Symposium On Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines (FCCM) for her work on "A Data-Driven, Congestion-Aware and Open-Source Timing-Driven FPGA Placer Accelerated by GPUs."

The paper was co-authored by Rachel Selina Rajarathnam and Prof. David Z. Pan.

The IEEE Symposium on Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines is the original and premier forum for presenting and discussing new research related to computing that exploits the unique features and capabilities of FPGAs and other reconfigurable hardware. Over the past two decades, FCCM has been the place to present papers on architectures, tools, and programming models for field-programmable custom computing machines as well as applications that use such systems.

Zhili Xiong received her Bachelor of Engineering from Wuhan University in 2020. She joined Texas ECE in Fall 2021, and she is supervised by Prof. David Z. Pan.
