ARC 2015

Date: Apr 14, 2015 1:00 am – Apr 17, 2015 10:00 am
Location: Bochum, Germany

The 11th International Symposium on Applied Reconfigurable Computing (ARC 2015)

Keynote: Prof. Alberto L. Sangiovanni-Vincentelli

Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences University of California at Berkeley

Reconfigurable computing technologies offer the promise of substantial performance gains over traditional architectures via customizing, even at runtime,

the topology of the underlying architecture to match the specific needs of a given application. 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 structures.

ARC aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners of reconfigurable computing with an emphasis on practical applications of this promising technology.

ARC 2015 will have a series of international invited speakers that will express their view on the future of reconfigurable technology.

The ARC 2015 proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as a Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series volume and will also be available through the Springer Link on-line service ( Additionally, selected papers will be invited to be submitted for consideration for a special section of ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems (TRETS).
