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 authors.

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
