Call for papers

The 1st International Workshop on Highly Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies (HEART) is a forum to present and discuss new research on accelerators and the use of reconfigurable technologies for high-performance and/or power-efficient computation. Submissions are solicited on a wide variety of topics related to the acceleration for high-performance computation, including but not limited to:
  • Architectures and systems:
    • Reconfigurable/configurable hardware and systems including IP-cores, embedded systems and/or SoCs for scalable, high-performance and/or low-power computation
    • High-performance custom-computing systems based on reconfigurable technologies including FPGAs
    • Grid/cluster computing with FPGAs, other reconfigurable technologies and accelerators such as GPGPUs and Cell/B.E.s
    • Novel architectures and devices that can be applied to efficient acceleration, including many-core architectures, NoC architectures, optical devices/interconnection
  • Software and applications:
    • Novel applications for high-performance reconfigurable systems and accelerators including GPGPUs and Cell/B.E.
    • Compiler techniques and programming languages for reconfigurable acceleration systems and other accelerators such as GPGPUs and Cell/B.E.
    • Run-time systems and the use of run-time reconfigurability for acceleration
    • Performance evaluation and analysis of reconfigurable acceleration systems and other accelerators such as GPGPUs and Cell/B.E.
In order to encourage open discussion on future directions, the program committee will provide higher priority for papers that present highly innovative and challenging ideas.

Papers are limited to 6 pages (two columns in ACM conference format), and must be prepared in PDF format. For double-blind review, manuscripts must NOT identify authors; names of authors, affiliations, e-mail addresses and self-references should be blanked out. Papers that identify authors may be rejected without review. Please refer to the paper submision page in this site for detailed instrutions and submission of your papers.

The HEART2010 proceedings will be appeared in a special issue of ACM SIGARCH Computer Architecture News (CAN) and also available in ACM Digital Library in this year. The post proceedings will include all the accepted HEART2010 regular-papers. The interim proceedings will be also served as a CD-ROM on the workshop day. It will include contributions for the other workshops and tutorials of the ICS2010 program.

By submitting your work to the HEART2010 workshop, you grant permission for ACM to publish the material in print and digital formats in ACM's Computer Architecture News and the ACM archive.
