warning Attention

Next ERSA-ADN Conferences will be arranged with new partners and in new site(s)

The last ERSA Conference with Worldcomp was in 2013

The content will have minor changes
Scope & Topics will be extended

ERSA Introduction

ERSA Conference consists of two parts:

  • ERSA Academic Section
  • ERSA Industrial Section

ERSA aims to create a forum for researchers, developers, and entrepreneurs working on heterogeneous reconfigurable hardware and supporting software area.

The scope of ERSA covers broad area, from simple applications on programmable logic to complex, intelligent, high-performance, embedded systems implemented as multicore systems and heterogeneous parallel processing systems. All these complex systems involve reconfigurability on software and/or hardware level.

Currently there is no industrial or developersí conference or journal focused on commercial application development for heterogeneous, reconfigurable, and embedded computing systems. As opportunities for heterogeneous, reconfigurable technologies continues to evolve, whether they be advances in FPGA technology, opportunities for low-power hybrid mobile computing, or ultra-efficient exascale computing, the need is now, more than ever, for a conference and journal that deliver both leading-edge thinking and practical applications.

The ERSA conference was established in 2001. It is held annually in July, Las Vegas, as part of the international WorldComp conferences. Previously, ERSA has been an academically oriented conference, now, the ERSA conference is at a turning point.

  • Since 2012, ERSA brings a new emphasis on the commercial and industrial challenges in preparing commercial applications for systems using reconfigurable, heterogeneous technology.
  • Another initiative is the newly formed journal “Application Developer News” (ADN) for industrial and academic researchers, commercial entrepreneurs, and developers. It publishes strong technical papers.
  • In addition, to support young and talented, ERSA-ADN conference and journal launched an Award for &ldqu;Best Entrepreneur”. The Award is devoted for entrepreneurs developing tools, advanced technologies and opportunities for supporting applications, both academic and commercial, across broad area of high-performance, embedded systems implemented as multicore systems and reconfigurable heterogeneous parallel processing systems.

ERSA is a part of WORLDCOMP Congress bringing together more than 2,200 attendees from over 85 countries over the world. Companies, participating at ERSA/WORLDCOMP, get their products and organizations in front of this number of attendees and countries.

ERSA conference brings together leading scientists and researchers from academia and industry. The best papers of ERSA have been published as the special issues of top archival journals.

ERSA Indexing

The proceedings of the ERSA Conference have been approved, by the evaluation board of science citation index (SCI) databases, for indexing, integrating, and inclusion into Elsevier indexing databases (Elsevier indexing databases include, among others: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village, www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com; and others)

In addition, the ERSA proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each published paper. Science citation databases include: Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (accessable from INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit, Qwam, & STN International); and others.
