ASAP 2013
24th IEEE International Conference on Application-specific
Systems, Architectures and Processors
5-7 June 2013
Washington D.C., USA

The conference will cover the theory and practice of
application-specific systems, architectures and processors.
The 2013 conference will build upon traditional strengths
in areas such as computer arithmetic, cryptography,
compression, signal and image processing, network processing,
reconfigurable computing, application-specific instruction-set
processors, and hardware accelerators. We especially encourage
submissions in the following areas:
* Bioinformatics and computational biology – life sciences
present a host of interesting problems that can benefit from
application-specific solutions
* Computational finance – the financial community has significant
needs for high performance computing
* Big data analytics – extracting and correlating information from
large scale unstructured data using application-specific systems
* Architecturally diverse systems – systems that use heterogeneous
computing resources including FPGAs, GPUs, and CGRAs
* Architectural and system level design space exploration and
customization techniques for improving the design efficiency
* Architectures for emerging platforms, such as smartphones,
tablets, and data centers, with emphasis on energy efficiency

Guidelines for Submission:
ASAP will accept 8-page full papers for oral presentation,
4-page short papers for short oral or poster presentation.
All submissions should be written in the English language.
An online submission link will be available on the ASAP 2013
website starting in early January. Papers should use the
IEEE formatting template linked at the submission page.
