The 30th Annual IEEE International Conference on Application-specific Systems, Architectures and Processors (ASAP 2019)
New York, USA
July 15-17, 2019

Early Registration Deadline: June 21, 2019

ASAP 2019 will take place in Cornell Tech, New York, United States. The history of the event 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 will cover the theory and practice of application-specific systems, architectures, and processors. The 2019 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.

The preliminary program is available at

For a quick preview, in addition to regular paper talks, we will have three exciting keynotes, three invited talk sessions on hot topics such as hardware acceleration and in-memory computing, as well as lots of interesting poster presentations. In addition, we will also arrange reception and social events during the conference.
