The 24th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2017) will be
held in Orlando, Florida USA in May 2017. RAW 2017 is associated
with the 31st Annual IEEE International Parallel & Distributed
Processing Symposium (IEEE IPDPS 2017) and is sponsored by the
IEEE Computer Society and the Technical Committee on Parallel
Processing. The workshop is one of the major meetings for
researchers to present ideas, results, and on-going research on
both theoretical and practical advances in Reconfigurable Computing.

A reconfigurable computing environment is characterized by the
ability of underlying hardware architectures or devices to rapidly
alter (often on the fly) the functionalities of their components
and the interconnection between them to suit the problem at hand.
The area has a rich theoretical tradition and wide practical
applicability. There are several commercially available
reconfigurable platforms (FPGAs and coarse-grained devices) and many
modern applications (including embedded systems and HPC) use
reconfigurable subsystems. An appropriate mix of theoretical
foundations and practical considerations, including algorithms
architectures, applications, technologies and tools, is essential to
fully exploit the possibilities offered by reconfigurable computing.
The Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop aims to provide a forum for
creative and productive interaction for researchers and practitioners
in the area.



All manuscripts will be reviewed by at least three members of the
program committee. Submissions should be a complete manuscript or,
in special cases, may be a summary of relevant work. Manuscript for
full paper should be not exceed 8 single-spaced, double-column pages
using 10-point size font on 8.5X11 inch pages (IEEE conference style)
including references, figures and tables. Manuscript for short papers
should be not exceed 4 single-space, double-column pages.
Papers are to be submitted through EasyChair. Submitted papers should
not have appeared in or be under consideration for a different workshop,
conference or journal. It is also expected that all accepted papers
(regular or short) will be presented at the workshop by one of the
All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format.Submissions can be made through:
* the RAW2017 web site: http://raw.necst.it/
* EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=raw2017
