Welcome to ARC2017, the 13th International Symposium on Applied Reconfigurable Computing

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 run-time. 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. 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.

This year's Symposium will have a series of international invited speakers who will express their views on the future of reconfigurable technology. The accepted papers will be included in the proceeding published by Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), which will be indexed by ISI Proceedings and EI-Compendex.

Selected papers will be invited to be submitted for consideration in the special issue "Recent Progress in Applied Reconfigurable Computing" of Elsevier Journal of Microprocessors and Microsystems (MICPRO).
