ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2018 (CF'18)
May 8 - 10, 2018, Ischia, Italy


The next ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers will be
held May 8 - 10 in Ischia, Italy. Computing Frontiers is an eclectic,
collaborative community of researchers who investigate emerging
technologies in the broad field of computing: our common goal is to
drive the scientific breakthroughs that transform society. Technology
is experiencing revolutions in memory devices and systems, networks,
electronic device production, machine learning, data analytics, cloud
computing, techniques to improve power and energy efficiency, systems
portability/wearability, to name but a few areas. New application
domains that affect everyday life are emerging, especially in the era
of highly interconnected and collaborative cyber-physical systems.
Boundaries between the state-of-the-art and revolutionary innovation
constitute the frontiers that mark the advances of science,
engineering, and information technology.

Early research that envisions future technologies provides the bases
that allow novel materials, devices, and systems to become mainstream.
Collaborative efforts among researchers with different expertises and
backgrounds enables revolutionary scientific breakthroughs that lead
to innovative solutions over a wide spectrum of computer systems, from
embedded and hand-held/wearable devices to supercomputers and data


Submissions deadline: January 21, 2018
Notification: March 7, 2018
Camera-Copy Papers Due: March 31, 2018
Conference Dates: May 8 - 10, 2018


We seek original research contributions at the frontiers of a wide
range of topics, including novel computing paradigms, computational
models, algorithms, application paradigms, development environments,
compilers, operating environments, computer architecture, hardware
substrates, memory technologies, and smarter life applications:

* Algorithms and Models of Computing -- Approximate and inexact
computing, quantum computing, and probabilistic computing

* Biological Computing Models -- Brain computing, neural computing,
computational neuroscience, and biologically-inspired architectures

* Limits on Technology Scaling and Moore's Law -- Defect- and
variability-tolerant designs, graphene and other novel materials,
nanoscale design, optoelectronics, and dark silicon

* Uses of Technology Scaling -- 3D stacked technology, challenges of
many-core designs, accelerators, PCM's, novel memory architectures,
dealing with manufacturing variability, and mobile devices

* Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems -- Design space exploration,
modeling and development frameworks for interconnected systems and CPS
and CPSoS, ultra-low power designs, energy scavenging, reactive and
real-time systems, reconfigurable and self-aware systems, robotics,
sensor networks and internet of things, and architectural innovation
for wearable computing

* Big Data Analytics -- High performance data analytics, data search and
representation, architecture, and system design

* Machine and Deep Learning -- innovative algorithms, innovative
architectures, and neuromorphic approaches

* Large-Scale System Design -- Homogeneous and heterogeneous
architectures, runtimes, networking technologies and protocols, power-
and energy-management for cloud and grid systems, data centers,
and exa-scale computing

* Fault tolerance and resilience -- solutions for ultra-large and
safety-critical systems, and hardware and software approaches to cope
with adverse environments such as space

* Compiler Technologies -- Advanced/novel analyses,
hardware/software integrated solutions, domain-specific languages,
and high-level synthesis

* Security -- Methods, system support, and hardware for protecting
against malicious code; real-time implementations of security
algorithms and protocols; quantum and post-quantum cryptography;
advanced persistent threats, cyber and physical attacks, and

* Computers and Society -- Education, health, cost/energy-efficient
design, smart cities, and emerging markets

* Interdisciplinary Applications -- Applications bridging multiple
disciplines in interesting ways

We also strongly encourage submissions in emerging fields that may not
fit into traditional categories -- if in doubt, please contact the PC
co-chairs by email.



Submission website:

Authors are invited to submit full or short papers to the main
conference. Papers must be submitted through the conference
submission website. Authors must declare in advance to which category
they are submitting.

Full papers are a maximum of eight (8) double-column pages in ACM
conference format with an option for authors to buy up to 2 extra
pages after acceptance. Short paper submissions should be at least two
(2) pages and not more than four (4) pages in the same format. These
limits include figures, tables, and references. Our review process is
double-blind: please remove all identifying information from the paper
submission (and cite your own work in the third person). Short papers
may cover on-going research that is seeking for early feedback and
will be presented at the conference as oral presentation in a
dedicated slot and in a poster session.

Both full and short papers will be published in the proceedings and in
the ACM Digital Library. Authors of selected best papers will be
invited to contribute with an extension of their work in a Special
Issue of JSPS.
