Welcome to OpenAccelerator !
The website provides an important source of information related to heterogeneous computing using multiple types of accelerated computing. Encompassing multicore, graphics processors, FPGAs and other accelerated computing, OpenAccelerator seeks to bring together stakeholders from across the heterogeneous computing spectrum to speed progress for heterogeneous interoperability.
In addition to news and other information for the accelerated computing community, the OpenAccelerator site serves as a gateway to the Registry for Accelerated Computing (RAC).

OpenFPGA is a non-profit 501c3 corporation created in 2005 and formalized in 2006. In 2009, OpenFPGA received its 501c3 status from the US IRS for its role in
advancing education and standards in reconfigurable and accelerated computing.
The organization continues its mission to realize vendor independent standards supporting general
integration support for reconfigurable computing technology across the emerging heterogeneous computing landscape.
OpenFPGA provides operational and logistic support for community
working groups in the areas of accelerator interoperability,
performance, programmer interfaces, application libraries, and education.
OpenAccelerator has its origins at the MRSC (Many-Core and Reconfigurable Supercomputer Conference) held in Belfast, Northern Ireland, April 2008. The
initiative began as a response to the diverse accelerator space active
at that time. As accelerator technologies change, the importance of standards
becomes ever more apparent. The OpenAccelerator initiative generally supports
other accelerator initiatives and serves as a trusted third party assuring
an ongoing source of reliable and available information related to accelerated computing in a rapidly changing ecosystem.
With a minimum of overhead, OpenFPGA resources and efforts
support community efforts through
conference sponsorship, recognition awards, collaboration resources
and promotion. OpenFPGA efforts have congributed to conferences and
workshops that include SAAHPC, MRSC, HPRCTA, SC and ERSA.
The annual OpenFPGA award regonizing progress in advancing
standards for reconfigurable computing has been awarded to investigators at
the University of Toronto, CHREC and the University of North Carolina Charlotte.
