Present CFP : 2019

==================================================================
ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2019 (CF'19)
April 30 - May 2, 2019, Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

CALL FOR PAPERS
!!! Extended Deadline: January 24, 2019 !!!

==================================================================


The next ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers will
beheld April 30 - May 2 in Sardinia, 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, and 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
centers.

SUBMISSION
==========

We encourage the submission of both full and short papers containing
high-quality research describing original and unpublished work. Short
papers are intended to describe preliminary or highly speculative work
as well as can be used to contribute position papers. Full papers are a
maximum of eight (8) and short papers are a maximum of four (4)
double-column pages in ACM conference format with an option for authors
to buy up to two (2) extra pages (full paper) or one (1) extra
page (short paper) after acceptance. Page limits include all figures,
tables and appendices; only references do not count against the page
limit. Our review process is double-blind: please remove all
identifying information from the paper submission (and cite your own
work in the third person). For each paper, at least one full
registration is required.

Submissions will be handled through EasyChair at:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cf2019

Both full and short papers will be published in the proceedings and in
the ACM Digital Library.

Additionally, CF 2019 will, for the first time, provide the
opportunity to optionally and voluntarily provide an artifact
evaluation appendix. Accepted papers can use up to an additional two
pages (at no extra cost) to submit an additional, independent appendix
based on the ACM criteria, which will be evaluated from a separate
artifact evaluation committee. While this will have no impact on
publication, upon successful verification, papers can receive the
appropriate ACM artifact badges, base on the following rules:
