IEEE 15th International Conference on
Application-specific Systems, Architectures and Processors

Galveston, Texas, September 27-29, 2004

Key Dates:
April 23, 2004: Deadline for submission of papers (extended from April 16)
May 31, 2004: Acceptance notification
June 25, 2004: Camera-ready papers due
September 27-29, 2004: Conference


The conference will cover the theory and practice of application-specific systems, architectures and processors. Areas for application-specific computing are many and varied. Some sample areas include information systems, signal and image processing, multimedia systems, high-speed networks, compression, graphics, and cryptography.

Aspects of application-specific computing that are of interest include, but are not limited to:

An additional focus in ASAP 2004 will be nanocomputing and massively parallel application-specific systems. With current trends in VLSI fabrication technology, it will be important to develop application-specific systems and associated compilation techniques capable of harnessing the massive parallelism provided by nanotechnology. ASAP 2004 solicits papers on theoretical and practical advances on these problems.

The conference will feature a keynote speech, paper presentations, and recreational activities. The proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press.

Information for authors:
Your paper should be a maximum of 5000 words. A PDF version of the complete paper should be submitted via the conference web page at For further information about the conference and paper formatting instructions, please see the conference web page.
