The ASAP 2014 conference is organized by IBM Research – Zurich and
the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH). The conference
will cover the theory and practice of application-specific systems,
architectures and processors. The 2014 conference will build upon
traditional strengths in areas such as computer arithmetic, cryptography,
compression, signal and image processing, network processing,
reconfigurable computing, and all types of hardware accelerators.
We especially encourage submissions in the following areas:

– Big data analytics: extracting and correlating information
from large-scale semi-structured and unstructured data
using application-specific systems.

– Scientific computing: architectures and algorithms that
address scientific applications requiring significant
computing power and design customization (bioinformatics,
climate modeling, astrophysics, seismology, etc.).

– Industrial computing: systems and architectures for
providing high-throughput or low latency in various
industrial computing applications.

– System security: cryptographic hardware architectures,
security processors, countermeasures against side-channel
attacks, and secure cloud computing.

– Heterogeneous systems: applications and platforms that
exploit heterogeneous computing resources, including
FPGAs, GPUs, or CGRAs.

– Design space exploration: methods for customizing and
tuning application-specific architectures to improve
efficiency and productivity.

– Platform-specific architectures: novel architectures for
exploiting specific compute domains such as smartphones,
tablets, and data centers, particularly in the context of
energy efficiency.
