22nd Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2015)
Hyderabad, India
May 25, 2015
The 22nd Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2015)
will be held in Hyderabad, India in May 2015. RAW 2015 is
associated with the 29th Annual International Parallel &
Distributed Processing Symposium (IPDPS 2015) and is
sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee
on Parallel Processing. The workshop is one of the
major meetings for researchers to present ideas, results,
and on-going research on both theoretical and practical
advances in Reconfigurable Computing.

A reconfigurable computing environment is characterized
by the ability of underlying hardware architectures or
devices to rapidly alter (often on the fly) the functionalities
of their components and the interconnection between them
to suit the problem at hand. The area has a rich theoretical
tradition and wide practical applicability. There are several
commercially available reconfigurable platforms
(FPGAs and coarse-grained devices) and many modern
applications (including embedded systems and HPC) use
reconfigurable subsystems. An appropriate mix of theoretical
foundations and practical considerations, including algorithms,
architectures, applications, technologies and tools,
is essential to fully exploit the possibilities offered
by reconfigurable computing. The Reconfigurable Architectures
Workshop aims to provide a forum for creative and productive
interaction for researchers and practitioners in the area.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original
unpublished research in all areas of reconfigurable systems,
including architectures, algorithms, applications,
software and cross-cutting areas. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to:

Architectures & Algorithms
– Theoretical Interconnect and Computation Models
– Algorithmic Techniques and Mapping
– Run-Time Reconfiguration Models and Architectures
– Emerging Technologies (optical models, 3D Interconnects, devices)
– Bounds and Complexity Issues
– Analog Arrays

Reconfigurable Systems & Applications
– Reconfigurable accelerators (HPC, Bioinformatics, Multicore environments)
– Embedded systems and Domain-Specific solutions
(Digital Media, Gaming, Automotive applications)
– Distributed Systems & Networks
– Wireless and Mobile Systems
– Emerging applications (Organic Computing, Biology-Inspired Solutions)
– Critical issues (Security, Energy efficiency, Fault-Tolerance)

Software & Tools
– High-Level Design Methods (Hardware/Software co-design, Compilers)
– System Support (Soft processor programming)
– Runtime Support
– Reconfiguration Techniques (reusable artifacts)
– Simulations and Prototyping (performance analysis, verification tools)

All manuscripts will be reviewed by at least three members
of the program committee. Submissions should be a complete
manuscript or, in special cases, may be a summary of relevant
work. The manuscript should be not exceed 8 single-spaced,
double-column pages using 10-point size font on
8.5X11 inch pages (IEEE conference style) including
references, figures and tables. A submission link will be
provided on this site by November 2014. Submitted papers
should not have appeared in or be under consideration
for a different workshop, conference or journal.
It is also expected that all accepted papers (regular or poster)
will be presented at the workshop by one of the authors.

IEEE CS Press will publish the IPDPS symposium and workshop
abstracts as a printed volume.
The complete symposium and workshop proceedings will also be published
by IEEE CS Press as a CD-ROM disk and be available
in the IEEE Digital Library.

Submission deadline: January 6, 2015
Decision notification: February 1, 2015
Camera-Ready papers due: February 14, 2015
