24th IEEE International Conference on

Application-specific Systems, Architectures and Processors

5-7 June 2013

Washington D.C., USA

The conference will cover the theory and practice of application-specific systems, architectures and processors. The 2013 conference will build upon traditional strengths in areas such as computer arithmetic, cryptography, compression, signal and image processing, network processing, reconfigurable computing, application-specific instruction-set processors, and hardware accelerators. We especially encourage submissions in the following areas: 

  • Bioinformatics and computational biology – life sciences present a host of interesting problems that can benefit from application-specific solutions
  • Computational finance – the financial community has significant needs for high performance computing
  • Big data analytics - extracting and correlating information from large scale unstructured data using application-specific systems
  • Architecturally diverse systems – systems that use heterogeneous computing resources including FPGAs, GPUs, and CGRAs
  • Architectural and system level design space exploration and customization techniques for improving the design efficiency
  • Architectures for emerging platforms, such as smartphones, tablets, and data centers, with emphasis on energy efficiency


The proceedings will be published in the IEEE Xplore library.
