Call For Papers

Reconfigurable Computing (RC) technologies offer the promise of substantial gains in performance and power efficiency 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 specific functional and storage units, adapted to the functions, bit-widths and control structures of a given computation. This flexibility enabled by reconfiguration can also be seen as a basic technique for overcoming permanent and transient
failures on emerging device structures.

ARC aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners of reconfigurable computing with an emphasis on practical applications of this promising technology. This year's symposium will also host a series of international invited speakers to share their insights into the future of reconfigurable

The ARC 2011 proceedings will appear in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and also be available in the SpringerLink on-line service. Additionally, the top papers will be invited to submit to a special section of a forthcoming journal issue of Elsevier Microprocessors and Microsystems (MICPRO).


Submissions are solicited on a wide variety of topics related to applied reconfigurable computing, including but not limited to:

Methods and Tools (High-Level Compilers, Simulation, Estimation, Design space exploration, Languages to program reconfigurable systems, etc.)

Architectures (Fine-grained, coarse-grained, and mixed-grained, Multi-processor-based reconfigurable platforms, Microprocessors with tightly-coupled reconfigurable hardware, etc.)

Applications (High-Performance Systems, use of reconfigurable computing in embedded systems, robotics, networking, digital signal processing, etc.)

Teaching reconfigurable computing

Surveys and Future Trends

Benchmarks (papers presenting benchmarks publicly available to be used by the reconfigurable computing community are especially welcome)

Submission Information

Authors are invited to submit original contributions in English including, but not limited to, the areas of interest mentioned above. Submissions must be uploaded to the ARC website and identify the format of the contribution as either:

Long papers, (12 pages maximum) which should include mainly accomplished results (oral presentation);
Short papers, (6 pages maximum, or 8 pages maximum upon payment of a further charge of US$100) to be composed of work in progress or reporting recent developments (poster presentation).
The format of the papers should be according to Springer-Verlag LNCS series (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format rules (guidelines at
