The HEART symposium is an international forum on state-of-the-art research in high-performance and power-efficient computing using accelerator technologies such as FPGAs, GPGPUs, and/or specialized accelerators. The fourth edition of HEART will take place in the City of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK.



The scope of the symposium includes, but is not limited to:
  • Architectures and systems:
    • Novel systems/platforms for efficient acceleration based on FPGA, GPU, and other devices
    • Heterogeneous processors/systems for scalable, high-performance, high-reliability and/or low-power computation
    • Reconfigurable/configurable hardware and systems including IP-cores, embedded systems, SoCs and cluster/grid/cloud computing systems for scalable, high-performance and/or low-power processing
    • High-performance custom-computing processors/systems
    • Novel architectures and device technologies that can be applied to efficient acceleration, including many-core architectures, NoC architectures, 3D-stacking technologies and optical devices
  • Software and applications:
    • Novel applications for efficient acceleration systems/platforms, and custom computing
    • Compiler techniques and programming languages for efficient acceleration systems/platforms, including many-core processors, GPUs, FPGAs and other reconfigurable/custom processors
    • Run-time techniques for acceleration, including Just-in-Time compilation and dynamic partial-reconfiguration
    • Performance evaluation and analysis for efficient acceleration
    • High-level synthesis and design methodologies for heterogeneous, reconfigurable and/or custom processors/systems
