Scope of the Special Issue and Topics

Reconfigurable computing (RC), and especially its implementation using
FPGAs, is becoming of paramount importance in many computing domains and
systems, from embedded, mobile to cloud and high-performance computing.
Programming of RC-based systems has advanced, but more advancements are
needed, especially efficient techniques for automatic mapping of
computations described in high-level languages to the RC resources. With
this special issue, we intend to show and disseminate recent,
state-of-the-art, techniques, from programming languages to compilers and
tooling support, for high-level programming RC systems.

The topics of the special issue include:

·       Mapping from Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs)

·       High-Level Synthesis (HLS) approaches and techniques

·       Source-to-source compilers and techniques targeting RC systems

·       Approaches and techniques for autotuning compiler and hardware

·       Tools and techniques for hardware specialization and approximate

·       JIT compilers for RC systems

·       Disruptive approaches for mapping computations to RC systems

We especially welcome accompanying open-source and artifacts associated with
the articles.

Besides the special issue, we intend to promote a new model consisting of a
presentation of each article as a talk (virtual), with a goal to connect the
authors to potential readers, and an accompanying video resultant from the
talk. In this way we will increase the potential to disseminate the recent
achievements and will contribute to discussions around the topics of each

Submitted papers must include new significant research-based technical
contributions in the scope of the journal. Papers under review elsewhere are
not acceptable for submission. Extended versions of published conference
papers (to be included as part of the submission together with a summary of
differences) are welcome, but there must have at least 40% new impacting
technical/scientific material in the submitted journal version and there
should be less than 50% verbatim similarity level as reported by a tool
(such as CrossRef). Guidelines concerning the submission process and LaTeX
and Word templates can be found at
Information&periodical=IEEE Transactions on Computers. While submitting
through ScholarOne, at
https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tc-cs, please select this special
issue/section option. As per TC policies, only full-length papers (12 pages)
can be submitted to special issues/sections and each author’s bio should not
exceed 150 words.
