The 4th International Symposium on Highly Efficient Accelerators and
Reconfigurable Technologies (HEART) is a forum to present and discuss
the latest research on accelerators including FPGAs and multi/many
core technologies for high-performance and power-efficient computing.

Important Dates (all 23:59 GMT)
– Paper submission: March 15, 2013
– Author notification: April 15, 2013
– Camera-ready due: April 30, 2013
– Symposium Dates: June 13 – 14, 2013

Submissions are solicited on a wide variety of topics related to
acceleration for high-performance and power-efficient computing,
including but not limited to:

Architectures and systems:
– Novel systems/platforms for efficient acceleration based
on FPGA, GPU, and other devices
– Heterogeneous processors/systems for scalable, high-performance,
high-reliability and/or low-power computation
– Reconfigurable/configurable hardware and systems including IP-cores,
embedded systems, SoCs and cluster/grid/cloud computing systems
for scalable, high-performance and/or low-power processing
– High-performance custom-computing processors/systems
– Novel architectures and device technologies that can be applied
to efficient acceleration, including many-core architectures,
NoC architectures, 3D-stacking technologies and optical devices

Software and applications:
– Novel applications for efficient acceleration systems/platforms,
and custom computing
– Compiler techniques and programming languages for efficient
acceleration systems/platforms, including many-core processors,
GPUs, FPGAs and other reconfigurable/custom processors
– Run-time techniques for acceleration, including Just-in-Time
compilation and dynamic partial-reconfiguration
– Performance evaluation and analysis for efficient acceleration
– High-level synthesis and design methodologies for heterogeneous,
reconfigurable and/or custom processors/systems

As in previous HEART editions, we plan to publish selected accepted
papers at HEART 2013 in post-proceedings ACM SIGARCH Computer
Architecture News (CAN), which is also available in ACM Digital

Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished
contributions as 6-page papers to be considered as regular papers
or 4-page papers to be considered as poster papers.
All contributions must be submitted electronically in PDF format
(two columns, US letter size, single-spacing, 10 points for main
body text).

For double-blind review, manuscripts must NOT identify the authors
in any way, so author names, affiliations, e-mail addresses and
self-references should be blanked out. Papers that identify authors
may be rejected without review. You can submit your contribution(s)
by following this easychair submission link.

Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a paid
registration for the manuscript to be included and published in
the symposium proceedings and ACM SIGARCH CAN post-proceedings.
Authors are also expected to attend and present their paper(s)
at the symposium.
