Preliminary  CALL FOR PAPERS

2018 International Conference on Reconfigurable Computing and FPGAs (ReConFig)

Cancun, Mexico
December, 3 – 5, 2018

Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have become
important infrastructure throughout IoT devices, networks, embedded and real
time systems, and most recently data centers.
FPGAs offer the advantage of being customized in the field to match
application specific requirements or host a custom heterogeneous multiprocessor
system on programmable chip.  In addition
to their historical role in distributed, embedded, real time, and
telecommunications systems, FPGAs are now an integral piece of infrastructure
to provide energy efficient solutions for big data analytics and machine
learning applications.

The ReConFig conference is now in its 13th year and
has become an international forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss
and disseminate new engineering and scientific advancements in all areas
pertaining to reconfigurable computing.
This year ReConFig will build on its prior success and seek new timely
unpublished research in the use of reconfigurable computing and FPGA devices in
research, education, and applications.
Topics of interest range from, but are not limited to, physical
reconfigurable hardware components and devices, performance and designer
productivity techniques and tools, and new evolving use cases. This year’s
ReConFig specifically encourages new research on integrating reconfigurable
computing components within standard software productivity ecosystems for cloud
and data center environments, and big data analytics and machine learning




Topics for the general session of ReConFig include but
are not limited to:

  • Models, methods, tools, and architectures for
    reconfigurable computing
  • Compilation, simulation, debugging, synthesis,
    verification, and test of reconfigurable systems
  • Field programmable gate arrays and other alternative
    reconfigurable technologies
  • Evolvable hardware and dynamic reconfiguration
  • Algorithms implemented on reconfigurable hardware
  • Reconfigurable computing education
  • Reconfigurable computing applications

In addition to the general session, submissions are
encouraged to the following special tracks that apply reconfigurable computing

  • High Performance Computing Systems and Applications
  • Cloud and Data Center Systems and Applications
  • Heterogeneous
    systems that integrate FPGAs, GPUs, and APUs
  • Multiprocessor Systems and Networked Systems on
    Programmable Chips
  • Productivity Environments and High Level Languages
  • Real Time Image and Signal Processing
  • Security, Cryptography, Fault Tolerance, and High
  • Machine Learning

ReConFig also encourages students to submit their new
ideas and preliminary work to the PhD Forum.
The PhD forum is a fun and exciting venue that introduces new
researchers into the community. 

Conference Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion
to IEEE Xplore. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an
extended version for a ReConFig’18 Special Issue of an International Journal.
