26th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop
Official website: raw.necst.it
May 20 2019. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The 26th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2019) will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in May 2019. RAW 2019 is associated with the 33rd Annual IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IEEE IPDPS 2019) and is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the Technical Committee on Parallel Processing. The workshop is one of the major meetings for researchers to present ideas, results, and on-going research on both theoretical and practical advances in Reconfigurable Computing.

A reconfigurable computing environment is characterized by the ability of underlying hardware architectures or devices to rapidly alter (often on the fly) the functionalities of their components and the interconnection between them to suit the problem at hand. The area has a rich theoretical tradition and wide practical applicability. There are several commercially available reconfigurable platforms (FPGAs and coarse-grained devices) and many modern applications (including embedded systems and HPC) use reconfigurable subsystems. An appropriate mix of theoretical foundations and practical considerations, including algorithms architectures, applications, technologies and tools, is essential to fully exploit the possibilities offered by reconfigurable computing. The Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop aims to provide a forum for creative and productive interaction for researchers and practitioners in the area.

Advance Program

The 26th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2019) will host the keynote speech: Performance harvesting in the post Moore era held by professor Luigi Carro from Universidade Federal Do Rio Grande Do Sul, Brasil.

Detailed information of the workshop's program will be released in the next weeks.

Paper Submission

All manuscripts will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Submissions should be a complete manuscript or, in special cases, may be a summary of relevant work. Manuscript for full papers should not exceed 8 single-spaced, double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5X11 inch pages (IEEE conference style) including references, figures and tables. Manuscript for short papers should not exceed 4 single-space, double-column pages. Papers are to be submitted through EasyChair. Submitted papers should not have appeared in or be under consideration for a different workshop, conference or journal. It is also expected that all accepted papers (regular or short) will be presented at the workshop by one of the authors.

Publication

IEEE CS Press will publish the IPDPS symposium and workshop abstracts as a printed volume. Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference.
