4th Reconfigurable Architectures Workshop (RAW'97)

April 1, 1997, Geneva, Switzerland

to be held in conjunction with 11th International Parallel Processing Symposium

(Sponsored by IEEE Technical Committee on Parallel Processing)

Program Chair: Reiner W. Hartenstein, Kaiserslautern University
Workshop Chair: Viktor K. Prasanna, University of Southern California

Text version

This workshop is the 4th one in a series held at Cancun, Mexico (1994), Santa Barbara, California (1995), and Honolulu, Hawaii (1996). RAW-97 is part of the 11th International Parallel Processing Symposium (IPPS-97), held April 1 - 5, 1997 at University of Geneva, Switzerland. RAW-97 will be held at April 1, the first day of IPPS-97. RAW-97 is one of 14 specialized workshops held first or last day of IPPS-97.

Goals and Visions of the Workshop

The recent decade has witnessed enormous technological advances, a deeper appreciation of the power of the use of reconfigurable technology platforms, and a better understanding of computing in time and in space. The building of reconfigurable systems can only be achieved by building on the experience in different areas, and close interaction between them to identify and solve the remaining problems.

The primary objective of this workshop is to provide opportunity for creative interaction between researchers actively involved in the fabrication, design, applications and enabling technologies of reconfigurable architectures.
