ASAP 2023
34th IEEE International Conference on Application-specific Systems, Architectures and Processors
Porto, Portugal – July 19-21, 2023

The 34th IEEE International Conference on Application-specific Systems, Architectures, and Processors (ASAP 2023) is organized by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto in Porto, Portugal, July 19 – July 21, 2023. The history of the ASAP conference traces back to the International Workshop on Systolic Arrays, organized in 1986 in Oxford, UK. It later developed into the International Conference on Application-Specific Array Processors. With its current title, it was organized for the first time in Chicago, USA, in 1996. Since then, it has alternated between Europe and North America.

The conference covers the theory and practice of application-specific systems, architectures, and processors. Further, the conference will build upon traditional strengths in areas such as:

  • Accelerator design for complex workloads, e.g., AI, big data, computational genomics, finance, and network processing
  • Application-specific instruction-set processors and architectures
  • Approximate computing
  • Autonomous computing systems
  • Cloud computing accelerators
  • Compression
  • Computer arithmetic
  • Cryptography and security
  • Design methods, tools, and compilers
  • Edge computing, wireless, mobile, IoT, and Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Embedded systems and domain-specific solutions
  • Heterogeneous computing, ranging from embedded to HPC systems and data centers
  • Reconfigurable and custom computing (FPGAs, CGRAs, etc.)
  • Signal and image processing
  • Simulation and prototyping (e.g., validation, performance analysis)
  • System quality attributes (energy efficiency, fault tolerance, security, etc.)
  • Systems using emerging technologies (e.g., optical computing or communication, 3D devices and interconnects, memristors for storage and logic, in-memory computing)

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research manuscripts on the above topics.
