                MAY 20-21, 2019 - RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL

The 26th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2019) will be held
in Rio de Janeiro in May 2019. RAW 2019 is associated with the 33rd
Annual IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium
(IEEE IPDPS 2019) and is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the
Technical Committee on Parallel Processing. The workshop is a vibrant
forum 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.
