Welcome to ASAP 2012
The 23st IEEE International Conference on
Application-specific Systems, Architectures and Processors.
This year's event takes place in Delft in The Netherlands.
The history of the event traces back to the
International Workshop on Systolic Arrays, organized in 1986 in
Oxford, UK. It later developed into the International
Conference on Application Specific Array Processors. With its
current title, it was organized for the first time in Chicago,
USA in 1996. Since then it has alternated between Europe and
The conference will cover the theory and practice of application-specific systems, architectures and processors. The 2012 conference will build upon traditional strengths in areas such as arithmetic, cryptography, compression, signal and image processing, application-specific instruction processors, etc. We especially encourage submissions in the following three areas:
- Bioinformatics and computational biology - life sciences present a host of interesting problems that can benefit from application-specific solutions.
- Computational finance - the financial community has significant needs for high performance computing.
- Architecturally diverse systems - systems that use varied computing resources such as FPGAs, GPUs, Cell processors, etc.
