Academic research on novel approaches to employ Field Programmable Gate Arrays in the context of security and cryptography will be funded (image: Intel)
FAPESP and Intel announce a new call for proposals under the under the cooperation agreement between the institutions.
The subject of the call is academic research on the novel approaches to employ Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) in the context of security and cryptography, and the associated vertical domains.
FPGAs are expected to cause a major positive impact on the security of areas such as Automotive, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles/Drones, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, and Data Centers.
In this call for proposals, Intel and FAPESP request research proposals leading to compelling techniques and technologies based on FPGAs that will help shape the future of security in areas of increasing relevance. It is worth emphasizing that the overarching goal is to provide an opportunity for researchers to explore and propose innovative ways to improve security by leveraging the benefits provided by FPGAs.
The call is open to researchers from public or private higher education or research institutions in the State of São Paulo.
Researchers are encouraged to make use of Intel platforms for their work, but there are no strict constraints beyond this broad guideline in order to allow flexibility of approach, device context, and usage scenario.
The proposal should clearly state the problems and opportunities to be addressed and the potential impact if the research is successful.
The list of documents that must be submitted is available at the SAGe system (www.fapesp.br/sage).
The last date for receiving proposals is October 11, 2017.
The call for proposals is available at: www.fapesp.br/11115.
