HEART 2016

International Symposium on Highly-Efficient Accelerators and Reconfigurable Technologies
Design Competition
July 25 - 27, 2016   //   Hong Kong


The HEART symposium is an international forum on state-of-the-art research in high-performance and power-efficient computing using accelerator technologies such as FPGAs, GPGPUs, and/or specialized accelerators. The seventh edition of HEART will take place in Hong Kong.
