Welcome to ARC 2018, the 14th International Symposium on
Applied Reconfigurable Computing

Hosted by Technological Educational Institute of Western Greece, Embedded System Design & Applications Laboratory (ESDA)

Conference Dates: 2 – 4 May 2018

Applied Reconfigurable Computing (ARC) Symposium

Reconfigurable computing technologies offer the promise of substantial performance gains over traditional architectures via customizing, even at runtime, the topology of the underlying architecture to match the specific needs of a given application. Contemporary configurable architectures allow for the definition of architectures with functional and storage units that match in function, bit-width and control structures the specific needs of a given computation. The flexibility enabled by reconfiguration is also seen as a basic technique for overcoming transient failures in emerging device structures.

The International Symposium of Applied Reconfigurable Computing (ARC) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners of reconfigurable computing with an emphasis on practical applications of this promising technology. This year's Symposium will have a series of international invited speakers who will express their views on the future of reconfigurable technology. The accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag as a Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series volume, will also be available through the SpringerLink on-line service (www.springer.com/lncs), and will be indexed by ISI Proceedings and EI-Compendex.

Selected papers will be invited to be submitted for consideration in the following special issues: IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine and Journal of Signal Processing Systems.

Research Projects Section

The ARC 2018 conference will include an extra section of the Proceedings dedicated to funded Research Projects. Coordinators of funded projects addressing ARC relevant topics are invited to submit a paper describing the recent accomplishments, preliminary ideas, or work in progress scenarios of the projects. Papers will be peer-reviewed as regular ARC submissions. The deadline for Research Projects papers is 30/11/2017. During the submission, the "Research Projects" track should be selected.
