Call For Papers

Recent advances in Cognitive Computing Systems (as evidenced by innovations like Watson from IBM and self-driving cars from Google), coupled with neurally-inspired hardware designs (such as the IBM True North chip), have spawned new research and development activity in machine learning, neuromorphic and other brain-inspired computing models, and architectures for efficient support of complex tasks in computer vision, speech recognition and artificial intelligence. The proliferation of mobile computing platforms, IoT and cloud support features thereof have opened up exciting new opportunities for real-time, mobile (distributed or swarm-driven) cognition. This half-day workshop solicits formative ideas and new product offerings in this general space.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
1) Algorithms in support of cognitive reasoning: recognition, intelligent search, diagnosis, inference and informed decision-making.
2) Swarm intelligence and distributed architectural support; brain-inspired and neural computing architectures.
3) Accelerators and micro-architectural support for cognitive computing.
4) Cloud-backed autonomics and mobile cognition: architectural and OS support thereof.
5) Resilient design of distributed (swarm) mobile cognitive architectures.
6) Energy efficiency, battery life extension and endurance in mobile, cognitive architectures.
7) Case studies and real-life demonstrations/prototypes in specific application domains: e.g. Smart homes, connected cars and UAV-driven commercial services, as well as applications of interest to defense and homeland security.

The workshop shall consist of short presentations by authors of selected submissions. In addition, it will include invited keynotes by eminent researchers from industry and academia as well as interactive panel discussions to kindle further interest in these research topics. Submitted papers will be reviewed by a workshop program committee (TBA), in addition to the organizers. While these peer-reviewed papers will not be published in the ASPLOS conference proceedings, the authors of the accepted papers will be invited to submit their work to a special issue of an eminent journal (TBA).

Announcement: Keynote Speaker: Prof. James. E. Smith (Prof. Emeritus, University of Wisconsin, Madison)
