The 2015 IEEE International Conference on Application-Specific
Architectures, Systems, and Processors (ASAP)
July 27-29, 2015
Abstract Submission: February 27, 2015
Paper Due: March 6, 2015
Notification: May 15, 2015
Conference: July 27-29, 2015
The 26th IEEE International Conference on Application-specific
Systems, Architectures and Processors 2015 (ASAP 2015) takes place
July 27-29, 2015 at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada. The
conference will cover the theory and practice of application-specific
systems, architectures and processors. The 2015 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:
– Big data analytics: extracting and correlating information from
large-scale semi-structured and unstructured data using
– Scientific computing: architectures and algorithms that address
applications requiring significant computing power and customization
(bioinformatics, climate modeling, astrophysics, seismology, etc.).
– Industrial computing: systems and architectures for providing high-
throughput or low latency in various industrial computing
– System security: cryptographic hardware architectures, security
processors, countermeasures against side-channel attacks, and secure
– 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
– Platform-specific architectures: novel architectures for exploiting
specific compute domains, such as smartphones, tablets, and data
centers, particularly in the context of energy efficiency.
ASAP 2015 will accept 8-page full papers for oral presentations,
4-page short papers for short oral or poster presentations, with a
single-blind review process.
Submissions to ASAP 2015 must use the double-column IEEE conference
proceedings format. The only accepted file format is PDF. An online
submission page will be made available on the ASAP 2015 website and
will include detailed guidelines and links to formatting templates.
