The 8th International Symposium on Highly Efficient Accelerators and
Reconfigurable Technologies (HEART) is a forum to present and discuss new
research on accelerators and the use of reconfigurable technologies for
high-performance and/or power-efficient computation. Submissions are
solicited on a wide variety of topics related to the acceleration for
high-performance computation, including but not limited to:
- Architectures and systems:
--- Novel systems/platforms for efficient acceleration based on FPGA, GPU,
and other devices

--- Heterogeneous processor architectures and systems for scalable,
high-performance, high-reliability, and/or low-power computation

--- Reconfigurable and configurable hardware and systems including IP-cores,
embedded systems, SoCs, and cluster/grid/cloud computing systems for
scalable, high-performance and/or low-power processing

--- Custom computing system for domain-specific applications such as
Big-data, multimedia, bioinformatics, cryptography, and more

--- Novel architectures and device technologies that can be applied to
efficient acceleration, including many-core/NoC architectures, 3D-stacking
technologies and optical devices

- Software and applications:
--- Novel applications of high-performance computing and Big-data processing
with efficientacceleration and custom computing

--- System software, compilers and programming languages for efficient
accelerationsystems / platforms, including many-core processors, GPUs, FPGAs
and otherreconfigurable /custom processors

--- Run-time techniques for acceleration, including Just-in-Time compilation
and dynamicpartial-reconfiguration

--- Performance evaluation and analysis for efficient acceleration

--- High-level synthesis and design methodologies for heterogeneous,
reconfigurable and/orcustom processors/systems

In order to encourage open discussion on future directions, the program
committee will provide higher priority for papers that present highly
innovative and challenging ideas.

We are planning to organize special sessions on HPC, Big data, and Dynamic
Reconfiguration. When submitting a paper, please select
topic(s) if the paper is related to them. Note that regardless of the
selection of special session topic(s), your paper will undergo the same
peer-review process as the main technical track.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original and unpublished
contributions as 6-page papers to be considered as regular papers or 4-page
papers to be considered as poster papers. All contributions must be
submitted electronically in PDF format (two columns, US letter size,
single-spacing, 10 points for main body text).
For double-blind review, manuscripts must NOT identify the authors in any
way, so author names, affiliations, e-mail addresses and self-references
should be blanked out. Papers that identify authors may be rejected without
review. You can submit your contribution(s) by following this easychair
submission link.

Submission:  <https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=heart2017> https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=heart2017

Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a regular
registration for the manuscript to be included and published in the
symposium proceedings and ACM post-proceedings (tentative).
Authors are also expected to attend and present their paper(s) at the
