The Fourth International Symposium on
Highly Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies
-- HEART2013 --
Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
13 - 14 June, 2013

- Paper submission: March 15, 2013
- Author notification: April 15, 2013
- Camera-ready due: April 30, 2013
- HEART2013 Symposium: June 13 - 14, 2013
- Post-proceedings (ACM CAN): see below

The HEART symposium is an international forum for state-of-the-art
research in high-performance and power-efficient computing using
accelerator technologies such as reconfigurable architectures, GPGPUs,
and/or specialized accelerators. The fourth edition of HEART will take
place in the City of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.

The scope of the symposium includes, but is not limited to:

* Architectures and systems:
- Novel systems/platforms for efficient acceleration based on FPGA,
GPU, and other devices
- Heterogeneous processors/systems for scalable, high-performance,
high-reliability and/or low-power computation
- Reconfigurable/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
- High-performance custom-computing processors/systems
- Novel architectures and device technologies that can be applied to
efficient acceleration, including many-core architectures, NoC
architectures, 3D-stacking technologies and optical devices

* Software and applications:
- Novel applications for efficient acceleration systems/platforms,
and custom computing
- System softwares, 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

As in previous HEART editions, we plan to publish selected accepted
papers at HEART 2013 in post-proceedings ACM SIGARCH Computer
Architecture News (CAN).

All contributions must be submitted electronically in PDF format (two
columns, US letter size, single-spacing, 10 points for main body text)
and be no more than 6 pages in length. 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. You can submit your contribution(s) through the following
easychair link:

Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a paid
registration for the manuscript to be included and published in the
symposium proceedings and ACM SIGARCH CAN post-proceedings. Authors
are also expected to attend and present the paper at the symposium.

In addition to presentations of accepted papers, we will also have
keynote lectures by:
- Mr. Ken Chapman, Xilinx
Title: Highly Efficient Designs: Art, Magic or Engineering?
- Prof. David Broman, UC Berkeley/Linkoping University
Title: Execution time should be as short as possible, but not shorter
