*2018 International Conference on Reconfigurable Computing and FPGAs 

Cancun, Mexico
December, 3 - 5, 2018

Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) have become important 
infrastructure throughout IoT devices, networks, embedded and real time 
systems, and most recently data centers.FPGAs offer the advantage of 
being customized in the field to match application specific requirements 
or host a custom heterogeneous multiprocessor system on programmable 
chip.In addition to their historical role in distributed, embedded, real 
time, and telecommunications systems, FPGAs are now an integral piece of 
infrastructure to provide energy efficient solutions for big data 
analytics and machine learning applications.

The ReConFig conference is now in its 13th year and has become an 
international forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss and 
disseminate new engineering and scientific advancements in all areas 
pertaining to reconfigurable computing.This year ReConFig will build on 
its prior success and seek new timely unpublished research in the use of 
reconfigurable computing and FPGA devices in research, education, and 
applications.Topics of interest range from, but are not limited to, 
physical reconfigurable hardware components and devices, performance and 
designer productivity techniques and tools, and new evolving use cases. 
This year's ReConFig specifically encourages new research on integrating 
reconfigurable computing components within standard software 
productivity ecosystems for cloud and data center environments, and big 
data analytics and machine learning applications.


Topics for the general session of ReConFig include but are not limited to:

   * Models, methods, tools, and architectures for reconfigurable computing
   * Compilation, simulation, debugging, synthesis, verification, and
     test of reconfigurable systems
   * Field programmable gate arrays and other alternative reconfigurable
   * Evolvable hardware and dynamic reconfiguration
   * Algorithms implemented on reconfigurable hardware
   * Reconfigurable computing education
   * Reconfigurable computing applications

In addition to the general session, submissions are encouraged to the 
following special tracks that apply reconfigurable computing to:

   * High Performance Computing Systems and Applications
   * Cloud and Data Center Systems and Applications
   * Heterogeneoussystems that integrate FPGAs, GPUs, and APUs
   * Multiprocessor Systems and Networked Systems on Programmable Chips
   * Productivity Environments and High Level Languages
   * Real Time Image and Signal Processing
   * Security, Cryptography, Fault Tolerance, and High Assurance
   * Machine Learning

ReConFig also encourages students to submit their new ideas and 
preliminary work to the PhD Forum.The PhD forum is a fun and exciting 
venue that introduces new researchers into the community.

Conference Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore. 
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version 
for a ReConFig'18 Special Issue of an International Journal.
