Call For Papers
Computing Frontiers represents an engaged, collaborative community of researchers who are excited about transformational technologies in the field of computing. We are presently on the cusp of several revolutions, including new memory technologies, networking technologies, algorithms for handling large-scale data, power-saving and energy-efficient solutions for data centers, systems solutions for cloud computing, new application domains that affect every day life and many, many more. Boundaries between the state-of-the-art and revolutionary innovation constitute the computing frontiers that must be pushed forward to advance science, engineering, and information technology. Before revolutionary materials, devices, and systems enter the mainstream, early research must be performed using far-reaching projections of the future state of technologies.
Computing Frontiers is a gathering for people to share and discuss such work, focusing on a wide spectrum of advanced technologies and radically new solutions relevant to the development of the whole spectrum of computer systems, from embedded to high-performance computing.
This year we are adding Industry Sessions and Workshops that focus on special topics. These sessions should have a special computing frontiers focus and can run between 1/2 and a full day. Proposals for Industry Sessions and Workshops should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by filling out the following document.
Topics of Interest
We seek contributions that push the envelope in a wide range of computing topics, ranging from more traditional research in architecture and systems to new technologies and devices. We seek contributions on novel computing paradigms, computational models, algorithms, application paradigms, development environments, compilers, operating environments, computer architecture, hardware substrates, memory technologies and smarter life applications. We are also interested in emerging fields that may not fit within traditional categories.

Position Papers, Trend Papers and Crazy Ideas
Industry Sessions and Workshops
Sessions should have a special computing frontiers focus and can run between 1/2 and full day. Proposals for Industry Sessions and Workshops should be sent by e-mail to email@example.com by filling out the following document.
Authors are invited to submit full papers or posters to the main conference. Full papers and poster abstracts must be submitted through the conference paper submission site. Full papers should not exceed 8 double-column pages in ACM SIG alternate style (Option 2). Poster abstracts should not exceed two pages in the same format. These limits include figures, tables, and references. Our review process is double-blind. Thus, please remove all identifying information from the paper submission (also if citing own work). Abstracts for accepted posters will be published in the proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library (note that authors of these works retain their copyright rights to publish more complete versions later). As per ACM guidelines, at least one of the authors of accepted papers is required to register for the conference. Industry Session and Workshop proposals should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by filling out the following document.
