The 28th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2021) will be held
in Portland, Oregon, USA in May 2021. RAW 2021 is associated with the 35th
Annual IEEE International Parallel & Distributed Processing Symposium
(IEEE IPDPS 2021) and is sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the
Technical Committee on Parallel Processing. The workshop is one of the
oldest platforms and a vibrant forum for researchers to present new
ideas, fresh results, and on-going research into both theoretical and
practical advances including novel innovations in Reconfigurable

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. This year the
workshop will also provide a platform for work in progress
