The recent years have shown a continuous interest in using
reconfigurable computing platform for the design of application-specific
computer systems. The advances in reconfigurable computing architecture,
in algorithm implementation methods, and in automatic mapping methods of
algorithms into hardware and processor spaces form together a new paradigm
of computing and programming that has often been called `Computing in Space
and Time' or `Computing without Computer'.
This conference focuses on the different approaches in
engineering of reconfigurable systems and implementing of algorithms, including
theory, architecture, algorithms, design systems and applications that
demonstrate the benefits of reconfigurable computing.
