Call for Articles for Computer

Computer seeks articles for a February 2007 special issue on high-performance reconfigurable computing systems and applications. Guest editors are Duncan Buell from the University of South Carolina, Tarek El-Ghazawi from the George Washington University, Kris Gaj from George Mason University, and Volodymyr Kindratenko from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Reconfigurable computing systems based on combinations of conventional processors and field-programmable gate arrays have been gaining attention in recent years. These synergistic designs have the potential to exploit coarse-grained functional parallelism through conventional parallel processing as well as fine-grained parallelism through direct hardware execution on FPGAs. A number of these systems have recently been developed by several major high-performance computer vendors such as Cray and Silicon Graphics and by emerging companies such as SRC and Starbridge. As high-performance reconfigurable computing systems come into wider deployment, developers must address issues regarding their programmability and their usefulness to the high-performance computing community.

Computer invites papers that provide a perspective on all aspects of high-performance reconfigurable computing. Examples of suitable topics include hardware platforms; applications; programming paradigms; compilers; programming languages; standards; and performance prediction and measurement.

Computer also encourages submissions that provide a comprehensive review of the state of the art and future trends in FPGA technologies; modern high-performance production and experimental reconfigurable platforms; high-level programming languages; and experiences in developing and running engineering and scientific applications on reconfigurable platforms.

The deadline for papers is 1 August 2006. Detailed author guidelines and submission instructions are available at portal/pages/computer/mc/author.html. Send inquiries to the guest editors at,,, or
