Previous ARC Workshops

Welcome to ARC 2012, the 8th International Symposium on
Applied Reconfigurable Computing

19 - 20 (Workshop) & 21 - 23 March 2012
Hosted by The Chinese University of Hong Kong and City University of Hong Kong
The Chinese University of Hong Kong, CUHK, Hong Kong
Co-organized by IEEE HK Section Computer Society Chapter & IEEE HK Section CAS/COM Chapter


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 included in the proceeding published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), ISSN: 0302-9743, which will be indexed by ISI Proceedings and EI-Compendex.
