ERSA’09 Conference

The international conference on Engineering of Reconfigurable Systems and Algorithms (ERSA) was founded in 2001 and, since then, has been held each year in Las Vegas.

ERSA conference solicits papers from all aspects of reconfigurable computing, including classical programmable logic, as well as configurable multiprogramming related papers. The topics of interests include theory, architecture, algorithms, design systems and applications that demonstrate the benefits of reconfigurable computing.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Theory - Synthesis, Mapping, Parallelization, Partitioning...
  • Software - CAD, Languages, Compilers, Operating Systems...
  • Hardware - Adaptive and Dynamic Hardware, Reconfigurable Architectures...
  • Applications - Mobile Computing, Automotive Industry, Smart Cameras...

All conference proceedings/books are considered for inclusion in major database indexes
