      24th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop
      RAW 2017
      Buena Vista Palace Hotel
      Orlando, Florida, USA, May 29-30 2017

      QUICK LINK: Web site: http://raw.necst.it/

      IMPORTANT DATES:

      Abstract submission: February 2, 2017
      Submission deadline: February 5, 2017 (final)
      Decision notification: March 1, 2017
      Camera-Ready papers due: March 15, 2017

      The 24th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2017) will be held in Orlando, Florida USA in May 2017. RAW 2017 is associated with the 31st Annual IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium (IEEE IPDPS 2017) 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.
