Call For Papers

As conventional von-Neumann architectures are suffering from rising power densities, we are facing an
era with power, energy efficiency, and cooling as first-class constraints for scalable HPC. FPGAs can tailor
the hardware to the application, avoiding overheads and achieving higher hardware efficiency than
general-purpose architectures. Leading FPGA manufacturers have recently made a concerted effort to
provide a range of higher-level, easier to use high-level programming models for FPGAs.

Such initiatives are already stimulating new interest within the HPC community around the potential
advantages of FPGAs over other architectures. With this in mind, this workshop, now its second year,
brings together HPC and heterogeneous-computing researchers to demonstrate and share experiences on
how newly-available high-level programming models, including OpenCL, are already empowering HPC
software developers to directly leverage FPGAs, and to identify future opportunities and needs for research
in this area.

Submissions are solicited that explore the state of the art in the use of FPGAs in heterogeneous highperformance
compute architectures and, at a system level, in data centers and supercomputers. FPGAs
may be considered from either or both the distributed, parallel and composable fabric of compute elements
or from their dynamic reconfigurability. We particularly encourage submissions which focus on the
mapping of algorithms and applications to heterogeneous FPGA-based systems as well as the overall
impact of such architectures on the compute capacity, cost, power efficiency, and overall computational
capabilities of data centers and supercomputers. Submissions may report on theoretical or applied
research, implementation case studies, benchmarks, standards, or any other area that promises to make a
significant contribution to our understanding of heterogeneous high-performance reconfigurable
computing and will help to shape future research and implementations in this domain. A noncomprehensive
list of potential topics of interest is given below:


1. FPGAs in the Cloud and Data Center: FPGAs in relation to challenges to Cloud/Data
Center/Supercomputing posed by the end of Dennard scaling
2. Cloud and Data Center Applications: Exploiting FPGA compute fabric to implement critical
cloud/HPC applications
3. Leveraging Reconfigurability: Using reconfigurability for new approaches to algorithms used in
cloud/HPC applications
4. Benchmarks: Compute performance and/or power and cost efficiency for cloud/HPC with
heterogeneous architectures using FPGAs
5. Implementation Studies: Heterogenous Hardware and Management Infrastructure
6. Programming Languages/Tools/Frameworks for Heterogeneous High Performance Reconfigurable
Computing
7. Future-gazing: New Applications/The Cloud Enabled by Heterogeneous High Performance
Reconfigurable Computing, Evolution of Computer Architecture in relation to Heterogeneous
High Performance Reconfigurable Computing
8. Community building: Standards, consortium activity, open source, education, initiatives to enable
and grow Heterogeneous High Performance Reconfigurable Computing


Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished contributions as a one page extended
abstract in ACM SIG Proceedings format.

You can submit your contribution(s) through a link on the H2RC website:
http://h2rc.cse.sc.edu
The authors of accepted abstracts will be scheduled to present their work at the workshop.
