This hands-on workshop will cover key aspects of modern programmable Systems-on-Chip and its applications to advanced scientific instrumentation and reconfigurable computing. Emphasis will be given to Nuclear Applications with the collaboration of the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics.

Systems-on-Chip (SoC) based on FPGA and dual-core processors are characterized by its low-cost along with a huge versatility to implement different concurrent tasks and critical activities such as hard real time hardware control and high performance multichannel data acquisition, processing and transmission. These remarkable features make SoC devices very attractive for frontier scientific applications.

The workshop will consist of about 65 hours of theoretical lectures and assisted hands-on activities. The laboratory sessions will count on state-of-the-art software tools and development hardware platforms. The selected faculty will be composed by lecturers and speakers from prestigious universities, hi-tech companies and research institutions.

The workshop will be primarily addressed to researchers, teachers and engineers of various disciplines who need to master cutting-edge technologies for their scientific, academic and professional activities.
