Tools for product and process design and manufacturing are being tightly 
integrated into their corresponding physical counterparts to manage 
greater avenues for real-time analysis, control, forecasting and 
optimization. However, this growth does not materialize without a 
penalty in the form of computational burden. There is a need for 
flexible and alternative approaches to accelerate product and process 
design and manufacturing. Therefore, the use of hardware accelerators to 
achieve such an improvement presents a research topic of increasing 

In this special issue, the journal of Concurrency and Computation: 
Practice and Experience is calling for submissions of original studies 
that research on the use of accelerators, such as GPUs or FPGAs, in 
product and process design and manufacturing. The special journal aims 
to provide prompt publication of original and high quality research, 
with emphasis on the development and use of acceleration methods and 
procedures to solve practical problems, although contributions relating 
to the accelerator mathematical and theoretical foundations are likewise 

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Use of FPGAs, GPUs and other accelerators in product and process 
design and manufacturing
- Deployment of accelerators in Digital Factories
- Offloading computation to accelerators to achieve real-time 
simulations in design and production
- Resource management and scheduling of accelerators in Industry 4.0
- Communication methods for accelerators in design and production
- Energy-aware accelerator techniques in Digital Factories
- Application-specific accelerators for Industry 4.0


Please submit your paper to Manuscript Central as "Use of accelerators 
in product and process design and manufacturing" special issue. 
Submissions should be prepared for publication according to the journal 
submission guidelines. It is expected that the submissions will address 
the topic of the conference and contain at least 50% new content 
regarding any previously published paper. Authors are encouraged to 
submit high-quality, original work that has neither appeared in, nor is 
under consideration by, other journals.


Important dates are as follows:
- Submission deadline: November 05, 2021
- Expected acceptance deadline: April 01, 2022
- Expected publication date: September 2022
