International Symposium on
Highly Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies

9-11 June 2014 @ Sendai Miyagi, Japan

Important dates:
- Abstract submission deadline: March 7, 2014
- Submission deadline for conference papers: March 10, 2014
- Acceptance notification: April 11, 2014
- Camera-ready/Author registration: April 25, 2014

The 5th International Symposium on Highly Efficient Accelerators
and Reconfigurable Technologies (HEART) is a forum to present
and discuss new research on accelerators and the use of
reconfigurable technologies for high-performance and/or
power-efficient computation. Submissions are solicited on a wide
variety of topics related to the acceleration for high-performance
computation, including but not limited to:

- Architectures and systems:
--- Novel systems/platforms for efficient acceleration based
on FPGA, GPU, and other devices
--- Heterogeneous processor architectures and systems for scalable,
high-performance, high-reliability, and/or low-power computation
--- Reconfigurable and 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
--- Custom computing system for domain-specific applications such
as Big-data, multimedia, bioinformatics, cryptography, and more
--- Novel architectures and device technologies that can be applied
to efficient acceleration, including many-core/NoC architectures,
3D-stacking technologies and optical devices
- Software and applications:
--- Novel applications of high-performance computing and Big-data
processing with efficientacceleration and custom computing
--- System software, compilers and programming languages for
efficient accelerationsystems / platforms, including many-core
processors, GPUs, FPGAs and otherreconfigurable /custom processors
--- Run-time techniques for acceleration, including Just-in-Time
compilation and dynamicpartial-reconfiguration
--- Performance evaluation and analysis for efficient acceleration
--- High-level synthesis and design methodologies for heterogeneous,
reconfigurable and/orcustom processors/systems

In order to encourage open discussion on future directions, the
program committee will provide higher priority for papers that
present highly innovative and challenging ideas.

We are planning to organize special sessions on HPC, Big data, and
Dynamic Reconfiguration. When submitting a paper, please select
topic(s) if the paper is related to them. Note that regardless of
the selection of special session topic(s), your paper will undergo
the same peer-review process as the main technical track.

As in previous HEART editions, we plan to publish selected accepted
papers at HEART 2014 in post-proceedings ACM SIGARCH Computer
Architecture News (CAN), which is also available in ACM Digital Library.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished
contributions as 6-page papers to be considered as regular papers
or 4-page papers to be considered as poster papers. All contributions
must be submitted electronically in PDF format (two columns,
US letter size, single-spacing, 10 points for main body text).
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. Papers that identify authors
may be rejected without review. You can submit your contribution(s)
by following this easychair submission link.


Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a regular
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 their paper(s) at
the symposium.

in MS-Word, HEART2014 template in Latex.


[FPGA Design Contest 2014 (Blocus Duo Revenge)]
Following the FPGA design competition in ICFPT2013, we are planning
another Blokus Duo design contest at HEART2014. The regulation of
this contest is slightly different from that of ICFPT2013; the new
regulation reduces the first-move advantage in the previous
regulation. To get more information, please visit:
