Special Issue "High Performance Reconfigurable Computing"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2019)
Reconfigurable computing using Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) and coarse-grained reconfigurable devices have received renewed interest because of their unique combination of flexibility, performance, and energy efficiency. Their reconfigurable nature allows these architectures to be customized to match the needs of a given application so that they can achieve much higher energy efficiency and/or performance gains compared to conventional CPUs and GPUs.
Recent trends in technologies, such as (1) high-end FPGAs with hardened floating-point data signal processing blocks, (2) new system-on-chip devices integrating CPUs, FPGAs, and GPUs, and (3) high-level programming support (HLS, OpenCL, OpenACC, etc.), make high performance reconfigurable computing more attractive for serious exploration in scientific simulation and data analytics.
We invite you to submit your latest research on the theoretical and practical issues in applying reconfigurable computing to high performance computing (HPC) and data analytics. Potential topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to:
- HPC and machine learning algorithms and applications implemented on reconfigurable devices
- Programming models, compilers, and system software for reconfigurable computing
- Algorithms and methods for leveraging dynamic reconfiguration to increase performance, flexibility, reliability, or programmability.
- Mapping algorithms and tools for heterogeneous system-on-chip devices

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
