About CoNGA

Organised by the Next Generation Arithmetic (NGA) team, the Conference for Next Generation Arithmetic (CoNGA) is an annual conference that provides a platform for speakers to showcase their recent development in NGA. The inaugural conference was held in March 2018 and is supported by A*STAR Computational Resource Centre and National Supercomputing Centre, Singapore.

Call for Papers

Paper submission by 15 December 2018 (Extended)

Notification of acceptance of papers by 15 January 2019

Camera-ready papers by 26 February 2019

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original, unpublished research and recent development in next generation arithmetic (NGA). This year an additional session focusing on machine learning/artificial intelligence problems with NGA techniques will be added. All accepted papers will be published in ACM Digital Library (LaTeX; Word), using the sigconf template. CoNGA 2019 invites original contributions on topics related to next generation arithmetic, specifically universal number (unum) and posit arithmetic, including, but not limited to:

  • Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence
  • Hardware implementation/proposal
  • Software and System implementation/proposal
  • Applications and use cases
  • Tools (e.g. compiler, verification, test-suite, measurement) implementation/proposal
  • Numerical algorithms
  • Mathematical libraries and models
  • NGA requirements

  • The submitted manuscripts can be up to 10 pages, written in English and formatted according to the ACM Digital Library's sigconf template. Invited papers will be allowed additional pages, up to 15. Submissions will be accepted electronically via EasyChair.
