Third International Workshop on High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing Technology and Applications (HPRCTA'09)


Submissions are solicited on a wide range of topics related to the field of High-performance reconfigurable computing, including but not limited to:

  1. Architecture of high-performance reconfigurable computing devices and systems
  2. Languages, compilation techniques, and tools for high-performance reconfigurable computing
  3. Libraries and run-time environments for high-performance reconfigurable computing
  4. Performance modeling/prediction and benchmarks for high-performance reconfigurable computing
  5. Algorithms, methodology, and best practices in application development for HPRC
  6. Applications of high-performance reconfigurable computing in science and engineering
  7. Trends and the latest developments in the field of high-performance reconfigurable computing
  8. Standards and approaches for application portability across reconfigurable platforms
  9. Validation and verification strategies for systems employing reconfigurable technologies

Submissions are due September 7, 2009. Authors should submit PDF documents electronically to the following email address: Full-length papers up to 10 pages are solicited. Manuscripts should be prepared in ACM SIG Proceedings format.

All papers selected for this workshop will be peer-reviewed. Workshop proceedings will be included in the ACM Digital Library. The authors of accepted papers will be scheduled to present their work in one of the technical sessions.

OpenFPGA Award for Advancement in Industry Standards in Reconfigurable Computing will be presented to recognize the paper that exemplifies and advances efforts to develop portable applications on reconfigurable computing systems. The award will include a modest cash award and two years of OpenFPGA membership for up to eight co-authors.
