7th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW 2000)

1 May 2000, Cancun, Mexico

Main focus of the Workshop:

Run Time Reconfiguration - Foundations, Algorithms, Tools.

Technological advances in the field of fast reconfigurable devices have created new possibilities for the implementation and use of complex systems. Reconfiguration at runtime is one new dimension in computing that blurs the barriers between hardware and software components. Neither the existing processor architectures nor the hardware/software design tools which are available today can fully exploit the possibilities offered by this new computing paradigm. The fast pace of technological development in industry is leaving no time to develop the necessary theoretical foundation that underpins CAD tools, operating systems, and designs. The potential of run time reconfiguration can be achieved through the appropriate combination of knowledge about foundations of dynamic reconfiguration, the various different models of reconfigurable computing, efficient algorithms, and the tools to support the design of run time reconfigurable systems and implementation of efficient algorithms. RAW 2000 is planned to provide the interaction between these diciplines.
