Call For Papers

11th International Symposium on
Highly Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies (HEART)

June 17-19, 2020, Paderborn, Germany
Twitter: @heart_symp

The International Symposium on Highly Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies (HEART) is a forum to present and discuss new research on computing systems utilizing acceleration technology. The main theme of HEART is achieving high efficiency with accelerators, which is of utmost importance across a wide spectrum of computing systems. In the high-performance computing and data center domains, high efficiency mostly relates to performance, while in the mobile and IoT space research communities think about accelerators more from a power/energy perspective. HEART 2020 will focus on high efficiency as a cross-cutting issue and asks for contributions in the following areas:

Architectures for Efficient Acceleration
Novel systems/platforms based on FPGA, GPU, and other devices
Heterogeneous processor architectures and systems for high-performance and/or low-power
Domain-specific architectures

Design Methods and Tools for Efficient Acceleration
Programming paradigms, languages, and frameworks
High-level synthesis and compilers
Runtime methodologies for heterogeneous systems
Performance evaluation and analysis

Applications and Systems
Application examples that benefit from efficient acceleration to a great extent
Complete systems demonstrating increased energy efficiency and/or performance
Comparisons between accelerator technologies

In order to set a basis for discussions on the cross-cutting nature of acceleration technology, HEART 2020 will feature two special sessions on highly efficient accelerators in the domains of
High-performance Computing / Data Center / Cloud
Mobile Systems / Edge Computing / Internet of Things

Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions as 6-page papers to be considered as regular papers or 4-page papers to be considered as poster papers. Since a double-blind review process will be used, authors should not identify themselves, so author names, affiliations, e-mail addresses and self-references should be blanked out. Papers that appeared previously as preprints on arXiv or similar are welcome and do not violate the double-blind review policy. The version submitted to HEART 2020 should however by anonymized. All contributions must be submitted electronically in PDF format (two columns, US letter size, single-spacing, 10 points for main body text). Accepted papers will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) and will appear in the ACM digital library. Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a regular registration for the manuscript to be included and published in the proceedings. Authors are also expected to attend and present their paper(s) at the symposium.

Ph.D. Forum

Ph.D. students working in areas relevant to HEART 2020 are solicited to submit an extended abstract of up to 2 pages comprising a summary of their research findings, work in progress and/or planned research. The Ph.D. Forum is intended as a platform for Ph.D. students to interact with peers as well as experienced
researchers. The forum will be organized as a poster session and will include a 5 minutes oral introduction by each student. The Ph.D. student should be the first author, thesis advisors may be coauthors. Submission will be reviewed to ensure quality and relevance. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to attend HEART 2020 and present their posters. The accepted extended abstracts will also appear in the conference proceedings.
