      Tutorial proposals: 31 Mar. 2021


Reconfigurable computing technologies offer the promise of substantial 
performance gains over traditional architectures via customizing the 
topology of the underlying architecture to match the specific needs of 
a given application, even at runtime. Contemporary configurable 
architectures allow for the definition of architectures with 
functional and storage units that match in function, bit-width, and 
control structures the specific needs of a given computation. 
The flexibility enabled by reconfiguration is also seen as a basic 
technique for overcoming transient failures in emerging device 
The International Symposium on Applied Reconfigurable 
Computing (ARC) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners 
of reconfigurable computing with an emphasis on practical applications 
of this promising technology.

The ARC 2021 proceedings will be published as a volume in 
Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series 
and will also be available through the SpringerLink online service.
The authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended 
versions of their work to a special issue of International Journal of 
Signal Processing Systems.

The symposium will be hosted by Inria at Beaulieu Campus, Rennes, France.
More details on the conference, including submission information  are available at:


We are looking forward to seeing you soon at Rennes for ARC 2021!
