The 22nd IEEE
International Conference on Application-specific
Systems, Architectures and Processors will take
place in Santa Monica, California, a beautiful coastal
town in the Los Angeles Metropolitan area, rich in
cultural, entertainment, and outdoor attractions.
The history of the event traces back to the
International Workshop on Systolic Arrays, organized in
1986 in Oxford, UK. It later developed into the
International Conference on Application Specific Array
Processors. With its current title, it was organized for
the first time in Chicago, USA in 1996. Since then it
has alternated between Europe and North-America.
The conference will cover the theory and practice of
application-specific systems, architectures and
processors. Areas for application-specific computing are
many and varied. Some sample application areas include
information systems, signal and image processing,
multimedia systems, communication, high-speed networks,
sensor networks, compression, graphics, cryptography, and
many areas of computational science. Aspects of
application-specific computing that are of interest
include, but are not limited to:
- Application-specific systems: network computing,
special-purpose systems, performance evaluation,
design languages, compilers, operating systems,
nanocomputing systems and applications,
hardware/software integration and rapid prototyping.
- Application-specific architectures: special-purpose
designs, design methodology, CAD tools, fault
tolerance, specifications and interfaces,
networks-on-a-chip, hardware/software co-design,
processor arrays, SoC, superscalar, multithreaded,
VLIW and EPIC architectures.
- Application-specific processors: digital signal
processing, computer arithmetic, reconfigurable/custom
computing, implementation methodologies, new
technologies, fine-grain parallelism, FPGAs, low-power
designs and asynchronous hardware.
