The 25th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2018) will be held in
Vancouver, British Columbia CANADA in May 2018. RAW 2018 is associated with
the 32nd Annual IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing
Symposium (IEEE IPDPS 2018) 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

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 authors.

All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format.

Submissions can be made through:
. the RAW2018 web site: http://raw.necst.it/
. EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=raw2018
