The 7th International Symposium on
Highly Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies

25-27 July 2016, Hong Kong

Submission DEADLINE:
17th June 2016

1st July 2016

The Ph.D. Forum at the HEART 2016 Symposium is a poster session for Ph.D. students to present and discuss their dissertation research with people in the domain. It is an excellent occasion for Ph.D. students to present their work in progress or preliminary results, and receive feedback from other researchers and for industry to see academic work in progress.

PhD Forum authors are invited to submit a 2-page paper using the format of HEART 2016 regular papers. PhD Forum papers should include clear descriptions of thesis motivation, objectives, problem definition, addressed solutions, current status, and planned work. Contributions based on preliminary results or on work in progress are particularly encouraged. Accepted PhD Forum papers will be included in the USB proceedings and presented at a special poster session with a best poster award.


HEART 2016 will follow the tradition of previous HEART symposiums of having an FPGA design competition associated with the conference. This year, we have for the design competition the New Zealand game, TRAX.

TRAX is a two player abstract strategy game of loops and lines. It can be played on any flat surface (no board) using identical square tiles with straights on one side and curves on the other side.

Submission deadline:17 Jun 2016

The 7th 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. The seventh edition of HEART will
take place in Hong Kong.
