Moore’s law continues to track the number of transistors that can be
fabricated within a
single FPGA, and manufacturers are now shipping components that can
host complete multiprocessor
systems on a reconfigurable programmable chip (MPSoPC).  Based on this
new capability FPGA
manufactures are now challenging systems designers to view the
processor in place of the transistor
as the least separable design unit.  Thus FPGAs can now be viewed as
yet one more technology platform
within the multiprocessor systems on chip manycore era.  Even though
specific technologies may vary,
system designers across the embedded systems, general purpose internet
computing systems, and high
performance systems domains are now facing common challenges
associated with multiprocessor systems
on (programmable) chip design.  Common architecture issues include
architecture heterogeneity,
cache and memory hierarchies, and high performance interconnect
networks.  Common software issues
include low latency and scalable operating systems, new coordination
layers, and scalable programming
models capable of seamlessly abstracting large numbers of potentially
heterogeneous cores on a single
chip into a single unified virtual platform. The aim of this workshop
is to provide a forum for idea
exchange and foster technology transfer between the reconfigurable,
embedded systems, and general purpose
communities that will foster synergistic resolution of these and other
challenging issues.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

    * OS Development for Reconfigurable and Many-core Systems
    * Reconfigurable/Embedded Network-on-Chip
    * Memory Hierarchies for Single Chip Parallel Architectures
    * Reconfigurable/Embedded System Security
    * Resilience in Embedded Systems
    * Programmability and Productivity
    * Performance Analysis, Prediction, and Parallel System Emulation
    * Languages, Libraries and Compilers for Reconfigurable and
Manycore Computing
    * High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing Applications
    * HPC and Large Scale Parallel System Emulation


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on
above and other topics related to
multiprocessor systems on programmable chips.  Submitted papers must
not have been published or simultaneously
submitted elsewhere.  Submission should include a cover page with
authors' names, affiliation addresses,
fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses.  Please,
indicate clearly the corresponding author
and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an
abstract of no more than 450 words.  The full
manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format.
 Additional pages will be charged
additional fee.  Please include page numbers on all preliminary
submissions to make it easier for reviewers to
provide helpful comments.  Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript
via email to the Workshop organizers at and

Only PDF files will be accepted.  Each paper will receive a minimum of
three reviews.  Papers will be selected
based on their originality, contributions, relevance, technical
clarity and presentation.  Authors of accepted
papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and
presented at the workshop.  Accepted papers will
be published in the conference proceedings which will be made
available at the time of the meeting.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop,
please contact the organizers.
