Reconfigurable computing technologies offer the promise of substantial performance gains over traditional architectures via the customizing, even at runtime, the topology of the 
underlying architecture to match the specific needs of a given application.

Contemporary configurable architectures allow for the definition of architectures with functional and storage units that match in function, bit-width and control structures the specific needs of a given computation. The flexibility enabled by reconfiguration is  also seen as a basic technique for overcoming transient failures in emerging device structures.

ARC aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners of reconfigurable computing with an emphasis on practical applications of this promising technology.  This year's workshop
will have a series of international invited speakers from industry and academia who will express their view on the future of reconfigurable technology (please visit the symposium web site for an update list of the confirmed keynote presentations).


The ARC 2018 proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as a Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series volume, will also be available through the SpringerLink on-line service (, and will be indexed by ISI Proceedings and EI-Compendex. Additionally, selected papers will be invited to be submitted for consideration for a special section of a high quality journal.


Authors are invited to submit original contributions in English including,but not limited to, the areas of interest mentioned below. Submission must be uploaded to the ARC website and identify the format of the contribution as either:

* Long Papers: (12 pages maximum) which should include mainly accomplished results (oral presentation)

* Short Papers: (6 pages maximum, or 8 pages max. upon payment of additional charge of $100 USD per page) to be composed of work in progress or reporting recent developments (poster presentation)

The format of the paper should be according to the Springer-Verlag LNCS Series (Lecture Notes on Computer Science) format rules as described in htttp://
