Symposium Information

Reconfigurable computing has made its way into almost any area of computing. After decades of research, it has shown its potential and benefits in many application domains ranging from High-Performance-Computing to embedded systems, from security to signal processing. Yet, there are still many open research questions: What is the optimal architecture for a particular application domain and how can we find it? How can we map applications to RC architectures? How can we model different application domains? What are the consequences of new technologies for RC architectures and tools?

ARC aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners of reconfigurable computing with an emphasis on practical applications of this promising technology. The symposium will have a number of international invited speakers who will share their views on the future of reconfigurable technology.

The ARC 2019 proceedings will be published by Springer- Verlag as a Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series volume and will also be available through the Springer Link on-line service.

The authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to a special issue of Springer’s Journal of Signal Processing Systems (JSPS).
