Call for Papers

It is our pleasure to invite you to participate in the 2018 International Conference on Reconfigurable Computing and FPGAs (ReConFig 2018) that will be held during December 3-5, 2018 in Cancun, Mexico.

Reconfigurable computing and FPGA technology have become major subjects of research in computing and electrical engineering as they have been identified as powerful alternatives for creating highly efficient computing systems. Reconfigurable computing offers substantial performance improvements when compared against traditional processing architectures via custom design and reconfiguration capabilities. Reconfiguration is characterized by the ability of hardware architectures or devices to rapidly alter the functionalities of its components and the interconnection between them as needed. Existing theoretical models and algorithms combined with commercially available devices, such as FPGAs, make Reconfigurable Computing a very powerful computing paradigm.


ReConFig is one of the leading forums in the field that brings together an appropriate mix of all theoretical and practical aspects of reconfigurable computing and FPGA technology. The conference promotes the use of reconfigurable computing and FPGAs devices for research, education, and applications, covering from hardware architectures and devices to custom computers and high performance systems.

ReConFig covers a broad spectrum of topics including, but not limited to:

  • Models, methods, tools, and architectures for reconfigurable computing
  • Compilation, simulation, debugging, synthesis, verification, and test of reconfigurable systems
  • Field programmable gate arrays and other reconfigurable technologies
  • Evolvable hardware and dynamic reconfiguration
  • Algorithms implemented on reconfigurable hardware
  • Reconfigurable computing education
  • Reconfigurable computing applications

In addition to the general session, submissions are invited for the following tracks:

  • Reconfigurable Computing for Networks and Communications
  • Reconfigurable Computing with GPUs and APUs
  • High Performance Reconfigurable Computing
  • Multiprocessor Systems and Networks on Chip
  • Productivity Environments and High Level Languages
  • Reconfigurable Computing for Signal Processing
  • Reconfigurable Computing for Security and Cryptography
  • Phd Forum

 Contributions are also welcome to the ReConFig 2016 PhD Forum. All attendees will be encouraged to bring their hardware/software for display at the ReConFig 2018 Demo Night.

 Conference Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
