INtelligent Systems and ParadIgms for Next GeneRation Computing Evolution (INSPIRE) is an international workshop focused at bringing computing system research developments. Its objective is on performance optimization of computing systems and enhancing the performance of computing using Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Edge, as well as designing new computing services for optimised application deployment using Edge AI. Several challenges exist in this field, including not only the development and execution of new systems and algorithms, but also the optimisation of isolated or integrated computing systems for sustainable cost-effective and eco-friendly practises.

This workshop aims to unite a number scholars from academia, business, and governmental organisations with an emphasis on analysing the new challenges of modern computing systems and building innovative solutions with the aid of modern technologies like AI, Serverless, and Quantum Computing. The workshop will provide a venue for discussing methods design, real testbeds, experimental evaluation, prototypes, and empirical characterisation of AI, Serverless, and Quantum Computing in modern computing systems. The workshop will promote debates on outstanding challenges in the area, such as cost-effective computing system solutions, energy-efficient and resilient system architectures, standards, and applications for an eco-friendly environment. The INSPIRE workshop accepts poster ideas for presentations of new work or work-in-progress on testbeds, evaluation methods and outcomes, and creative prototypes for critical infrastructure. Papers outlining fresh findings, problems with the literature, real-world applications, case studies, and commercial applications are encouraged. In order to advance the conversation, it is also encouraged that current research, opinion, visionary, and student papers be submitted. Overall topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Cloud and fog/edge computing environments
IoT and Edge computing
Cloud/Edge surveys and taxonomies
Edge AI
Performance modeling & evaluation
QoS/QoE management in the cloud/edge
Green cloud computing
Mobile clouds and mobile edge computing

IoT-enabled Smart Systems and Applications.
Digital Twins and Industry 4.0.
Autonomous systems
Applications for Cloud-to-Things continuum
Cyber-Security and Privacy
Resilient Distributed Systems
Advance Topics (Neuromorphic computing; Quantum computing, biologically-inspired computing)


The INSPIRE workshop invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. Papers should not exceed 6 pages single-spaced double-column, using standard ACM format for conference proceedings. Additional pages might be purchased upon the approval of the proceedings chair.
Paper submission is electronic only. Authors should use the EasyChair system:
Submission requires the willingness of at least one of the authors to register for an early full and non-student fee and present the paper.
All selected papers for this workshop are peer-reviewed and proceedings will be published by ACM and made available online via the ACM Digital Library.
All manuscripts undergo a double-blind peer-review process and will be reviewed and judged on correctness, originality, technical strength, rigour in analysis, quality of results, quality of presentation, and interest and relevance to the workshop attendees. Your submission is subject to a determination that you are not under any sanctions by ACM. Accepted papers will later be converted into single-column format through the ACM TAPS process and therefore need to use the new templates that are single-column by default. Switch them to double-column for authoring your paper. This is possible in both the Word and the LaTeX templates.
