The ASAP 2014 conference will be organized by IBM Research - Zurich
and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH).
The conference will cover the theory and practice of application-specific
systems, architectures and processors. The 2014 conference will build
upon traditional strengths in areas such as computer arithmetic,
cryptography, compression, signal and image processing, network processing,
reconfigurable computing, and all types of hardware accelerators.
We especially encourage submissions in the following areas:

  - Big data analytics: extracting and correlating information from large-scale
    semi-structured and unstructured data using application-specific systems.

  - Scientific computing: architectures and algorithms that address scientific
    applications requiring significant computing power and design customization
        (bioinformatics, climate modeling, astrophysics, seismology, etc.).

  - Industrial computing: systems and architectures for providing high-
    throughput or low latency in various industrial computing applications.

  - System security: cryptographic hardware architectures, security processors,
    countermeasures against side-channel attacks, and secure cloud computing.

  - Heterogeneous systems: applications and platforms that exploit heterogeneous
    computing resources, including FPGAs, GPUs, or CGRAs.

  - Design space exploration: methods for customizing and tuning application-
    specific architectures to improve efficiency and productivity.

  - Platform-specific architectures: novel architectures for exploiting specific
    compute domains such as smartphones, tablets, and data centers, particularly
    in the context of energy efficiency.



ASAP 2014 will accept 8-page (US letter-size pages, double column) full papers
for oral presentations, 4-page short papers for short oral or poster
presentations, with a single-blind review process. Full papers may have a
maximum of two extra pages at a fee of USD 100 per page.

Submissions to ASAP 2014 must use the double-column IEEE conference
proceedings format. The only accepted file format is PDF. An online submission
page is available on the ASAP 2014 website and includes detailed guidelines and
links to formatting templates. Selected papers from ASAP 2014 will be
invited for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Signal Processing
