High-Performance Reconfigurable Computing (HPRC) based on the combination of conventional microprocessors and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) is a new and rapidly evolving computing paradigm that offers a potential to accelerate computationally intensive scientific applications beyond of what is possible on today's mainstream HPC systems. The academic community has been actively investigating this technology for the past several years and the technology has proven itself to be practical for a number of HPC applications. Many of the HPC vendors are now offering or are planning to offer various HPRC solutions. The goal of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss the latest trends and developments in the field, and to setup a research agenda for the upcoming years. This workshop will bring together researchers and industry involved with the development of the technology, and computational scientists interested in applying this technology in their research.
