The 27th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2020) will be held in New Orleans, USA in May 2020. RAW 2020 is associated with the 34rd Annual IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IEEE IPDPS 2020) and is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the Technical Committee on Parallel Processing. The workshop is one of the oldest platforms and a vibrant forum for researchers to present new ideas, fresh results, and on-going research into both theoretical and practical advances including novel innovations 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. This year the workshop will also provide a platform for work in progress.
As you may already know, the physical RAW meeting of this year has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. However, we will still have a virtual RAW program (vRAW20) with all the accepted papers. All the accepted papers will appear in the usual IPDPS Workshops Proceedings for RAW and will be available to the community via IEEE Xplore.
In addition, the RAW Steering Committee has decided to host a virtual presentation space for RAW20 from June this year. The virtual presentation space will be hosted on the RAW website and comprises the presentation slides for each accepted paper and, optionally, a recording of the authors’ presentations. We have decided against providing a discussion forum this year.
We are very sorry to have missed you in New Orleans this year, but we really hope to see you in the not too distant future and next year at RAW 2021.
To create the virtual presentation space, we ask the authors to prepare and submit presentation slides for your RAW20 paper by 31 May. Please provide either a PowerPoint or PDF version of your presentation slides.
If you would like to make a recording of your presentation available as well - up to 20 minutes in duration for a full paper and 10 minutes for a short paper - we would like you to send us a link to your recording. We will make this link available or host a copy of the recording if you prefer. Please note that the Steering Committee does not require you to make a recording of your presentation available.
Please email your presentation slides and link details to: Marco Rabozzi (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Oliver Diessel (email@example.com) before 1 June.
