AB The computational accelerator field is blossoming with activity in multidisciplinary, advanced research and development for new classes of accelerator architectures and applications to tap into accelerators' power. The guest editors define the area of computational acceleration, discuss architectural trade-offs, clarify issues, drawbacks, and advantages of applications development on accelerator architectures, and attempt to answer the question, "If we build it, who will come?"
