ASAP 2018

The 29th IEEE International Conference on Application-specific Systems, Architectures and Processors 2018 will take place in Milan, Italy. The 2018 edition of the conference is organized by Politecnico di Milano.

The history of the event traces back to the International Workshop on Systolic Arrays, organized in 1986 in Oxford, UK. It later developed into the International Conference on Application Specific Array Processors. With its current title, it was organized for the first time in Chicago, USA in 1996. Since then it has alternated between Europe and North-America. The conference will cover the theory and practice of application-specific systems, architectures and processors. The 2018 conference will build upon traditional strengths in areas such as computer arithmetic, cryptography, compression, signal and image processing, network processing, reconfigurable computing, application-specific instruction-set processors, and hardware accelerators. 
We especially encourage submissions in the following areas:

. Machine and Deep Learning: architectures and applications that exploit efficient machine learning algorithms (neural network, cooperative learning, statistical learning, multi-agent learning, etc) and their applications in fields like medicine and health, security, smart cities, economics.
. Cloud Computing infrastructures and acceleration: design experiences and real implementations of systems with high environmental impact, including hardware and software architectures for energy-efficient computing; virtualization; resource management techniques; innovative data-center management strategies; SW/OS-level implementations in real systems and data centers; energy-efficient big data management; data centers powered by renewable energy sources and data centers in smart grids.
. Heterogeneous systems: applications and platforms that exploit heterogeneous computing resources, including FPGAs, GPUs, or CGRAs.
. System security: cryptographic hardware architectures, security processors, countermeasures against side-channel attacks, and secure cloud computing.
. Big data analytics: extracting and correlating information from large-scale semi-structured and unstructured data using application-specific systems.
. Scientific computing: architectures and algorithms that address scientific applications requiring significant computing power and design customization (bioinformatics, climate modeling, astrophysics, seismology, etc.).
. Industrial computing: systems and architectures for providing high- throughput or low latency in various industrial computing applications.
. Design space exploration: methods for customizing and tuning application- specific architectures to improve efficiency and productivity.
. Platform-specific architectures: novel architectures for exploiting specific compute domains such as smartphones, tablets, and data centers, particularly in the context of energy efficiency. 
. Hardware and software architectures for cyber-physical systems: modeling and simulation techniques for large cyber-physical sytems, node architectures, cognitive control for CPS.



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 exceeding 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 not exceed 4 single-space, double-column pages.
Manuscripts for posters should not be not exceeding 2 sing-spaced, 
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, short or poster) will be presented at ASAP by one of the 
authors. Failure to present will result in the removal of the submission 
from the proceedings before publication in IEEE Xplore. 
All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format.
Submissions can 
be made through:
