The 8th International Symposium on Highly Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies (HEART) is a forum to present and discuss new research on accelerators and the use of reconfigurable technologies for high-performance and/or power-efficient computation. Submissions are solicited on a wide variety of topics related to the acceleration for high-performance computation, including but not limited to:

– Architectures and systems:

— Novel systems/platforms for efficient acceleration based on FPGA, GPU, and other devices

— Heterogeneous processor architectures and systems for scalable, high-performance, high-reliability, and/or low-power computation

— Reconfigurable and configurable hardware and systems including IP-cores, embedded systems, SoCs, and cluster/grid/cloud computing systems for scalable, high-performance and/or low-power processing

— Custom computing system for domain-specific applications such as Big-data, multimedia, bioinformatics, cryptography, and more

— Novel architectures and device technologies that can be applied to efficient acceleration, including many-core/NoC architectures, 3D-stacking technologies and optical devices

– Software and applications:

— Novel applications of high-performance computing and Big-data processing with efficient acceleration and custom computing

— System software, compilers and programming languages for efficient acceleration systems / platforms, including many-core

processors, GPUs, FPGAs and other reconfigurable /custom processors

— Run-time techniques for acceleration, including Just-in-Time compilation and dynamic partial-reconfiguration

— Performance evaluation and analysis for efficient acceleration

— High-level synthesis and design methodologies for heterogeneous, reconfigurable and/or custom processors/systems

In order to encourage open discussion on future directions, the program committee will provide higher priority for papers that present highly innovative and challenging ideas.

We are planning to organize special sessions on HPC, Big data, and Dynamic Reconfiguration. When submitting a paper, please select topic(s) if the paper is related to them. Note that regardless of the selection of special session topic(s), your paper will undergo the same peer-review process as the main technical track.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished contributions as 6-page papers to be considered as regular papers or 4-page papers to be considered as poster papers. All contributions must be submitted electronically in PDF format (two columns, US letter size, single-spacing, 10 points for main body text).

For double-blind review, manuscripts must NOT identify the authors in any way, so author names, affiliations, e-mail addresses and self-references should be blanked out. Papers that identify authors may be rejected without review. You can submit your contribution(s) by following this easychair submission link.

Subm ission: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=heart2017

Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a regular registration for the manuscript to be included and published in the symposium proceedings and ACM post-proceedings (tentative). Authors are also expected to attend and present their paper(s) at the symposium.
