ABSTRACT: High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (HPRC) is a novel computing paradigm that offers a potential to improve performance and power efficiency of many computationally intensive scientific codes beyond of what is possible on today’s mainstream high-performance computers. HPRC systems rely on field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for the direct hardware execution of computationally intensive kernels, which is a radical departure from the Von Neumann architecture. The academic community has been exploring this computing paradigm for over a decade and the technology has proven itself to be practical for a number of HPC applications.
The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for computational scientists that use reconfigurable computers and the developers of this technology to discuss the latest progress and trends in the field. Topics of interest include architectures, languages, compilation techniques, tools, libraries, run-time environments, performance modeling, benchmarks, algorithms, methodology, applications, trends, and the latest developments in the field of HPRC.
