CF 2013 : Computing Frontiers Conference
Conference Series : Computing Frontiers
Call For Papers
The increasing complexity, performance, cost and energy efficiency needs of current and future applications require novel and innovative approaches to computing. Boundaries between state of the art and revolutionary innovation constitute the computing frontiers that must be pushed forward to provide the support required for the advancement of computer science, engineering and information technology. The Computing Frontiers conference focuses on a wide spectrum of advanced methodologies, technologies and radically new solutions relevant to the development of the whole spectrum of computing over the next few decades. The goals of the meeting range over from embedded to high-performance computing.
We seek contributions on novel algorithms, computing paradigms, computational models, application paradigms, computer architecture, development environments, compilers, or operating environments. In recognition of the maturation of several exciting areas at the frontiers, this year, we are soliciting papers in thematic tracks in addition to the general track. The topics of these tracks listed below are suggestive and authors are invited to submit their papers in the track that they believe matches their interests the best. In case the authors prefer not to submit to any of the thematic tracks, they are invited to submit their papers for review through the general track. The program committee has identified the following tracks for CF2013. In each track, a few key words identifying suggested topics for research are listed below. These topics are not meant to be exhaustive but instead, are broadly indicative of the range topics being considered.
Algorithms and Models of Computing
Approximate and Inexact, Quantum and Probabilistic Computing, Neurmorphic Architectures
Analytics, Machine Learning, Search and Representation, System Design
System Complexity Management
Cloud Systems, Datacenters, Computational Neuroscience, Neuromorphic and Biologically-inspired Architectures
Computers and Society
Education, Health and Frugal Design delivering significantly lower energy and cost, Smart Cities and Urban Design
Architecture and Systems support for Side-channel attacks, Trojans
Technology Scaling and Moore's Law
Defect- and variability-tolerant designs, Graphene and other novel materials, Inexact computing, Nanoscale Design, Optoelectronics, coping with the Power Wall
User Experience and Interfaces
Technology Convergence Enabling Psychology and Neuroscience guided design
Topics in the general track can intersect with the above themes and/or provide cutting-edge solutions in established disciplines such as: Applications, programming and performance analysis of advanced architectures next-generation high performance computing and systems, Accelerators: many-core, GPU, custom, reconfigurable, embedded, and hybrid, Virtualization and virtual machines, Compilers and operating systems: adaptive, run-time, and auto-tuning, System management and security, Computational aspects of intelligent systems and robotics, Reconfigurable, autonomic, organic, and self-organizing computation and systems, Sensors and sensor networks.
Authors are invited to submit full papers to the main conference and Ph.D. students are invited to submit an extended abstract for a special Ph.D. forum and poster session. The accepted Ph.D. forum extended abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings.
Full papers must be submitted through the conference web site and should not exceed 10 double-column pages and extended abstracts cannot exceed 4 double-column pages in standard ACM conference format, including figures, tables, and references. Papers will be reviewed in a double blind fashion. This means that submissions must be anonymous. When submitting for a double blind process, authors need to take special care in removing their names and any hints that might reveal their identities to the reviewers. As per ACM guidelines, at least one of the authors of accepted papers is required to register for the conference
