Call For Papers

The next ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers will be
held May 15-17 in Siena, 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, systems
portability/wearability, to name but a few areas. New application
domains that affect everyday life are emerging, especially in this 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.


TOPICS OF INTEREST
==================

We seek original research contributions at the frontiers of a wide
range of topics, including novel computing paradigms, computational
models, algorithms, application paradigms, development environments,
compilers, operating environments, computer architecture, hardware
substrates, memory technologies, and smarter life applications:

* Algorithms and Models of Computing -- Approximate and inexact
computing, quantum and probabilistic computing

* Biological Computing Models -- Brain computing, neural computing,
computational neuroscience, biologically-inspired architectures
Limits on Technology Scaling and Moore's Law -- Defect- and
variability-tolerant designs, graphene and other novel materials,
nanoscale design, optoelectronics, dark silicon

* Uses of Technology Scaling -- 3D stacked technology, challenges of
many-core designs, accelerators, PCM's, novel memory architectures,
mobile devices

* Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems -- Design space exploration,
modeling and development frameworks for interconnected systems and CPS
and CPSoS, ultra-low power designs, energy scavenging, reactive and
real-time systems, reconfigurable and self-aware systems, sensor
networks and internet of things, and architectural innovation for
wearable computing

* Big Data Analytics -- High performance data analytics, data search and
representation, architecture, and system design

* Machine and Deep Learning -- innovative algorithms and architectures,
neuromorphic approaches

* Large-Scale System Design -- Homogeneous and heterogeneous
architectures, runtimes, networking technologies and protocols, power-
and energy-management for cloud and grid systems, data centers,
exa-scale computing

* Compiler Technologies -- Advanced/novel analyses,
hardware/software integrated solutions, domain-specific languages,
high-level synthesis

* Security -- Methods, system support, and hardware for protecting
against malicious code; real-time implementations of security
algorithms and protocols; quantum and post-quantum cryptography;
advanced persistent threats, cyber and physical attacks, and
countermeasures

* Computers and Society -- Education, health, cost/energy-efficient
design, smart cities, and emerging markets

* Interdisciplinary Applications -- Applications bridging multiple
disciplines in interesting ways

We also strongly encourage submissions in emerging fields that may not
fit into traditional categories -- if in doubt, please contact the PC
co-chairs by email.


WORKSHOPS
=========

We are pleased to host several co-located workshops on topics closely
related to Computing Frontiers. These workshops will be announced
soon.


SUBMISSION
==========

Authors are invited to submit full papers, position papers, trend
papers, and poster abstracts to the main conference.

Papers must be submitted through the conference submission website,
which will be announced soon. Authors must declare in advance to which
category they are submitting.

Full papers are a maximum of eight (8) double-column pages in ACM
conference format. Authors may purchase up to two (2) additional pages
at 100 Euro per page. Authors can submit full papers of up to 10
double-column pages, provided that they agree to pay for the
additional pages if the paper is accepted. All other types of
submissions should be at least two (2) pages and not more than four
(4) pages in the same format. These limits include figures, tables,
and references. Our review process is double-blind: please remove all
identifying information from the paper submission (and cite your own
work in the third person). Authors of interesting work not mature
enough for an oral presentation may be offered the option of
presenting their work as posters.

Position papers, trend papers, poster abstracts and workshop papers
will be published in the proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library.
As per ACM guidelines, at least one unique author of each accepted
paper is required to register for the conference.

Selected papers from the Computing Frontiers 2017 conference will be
invited to extend their work for publication in a special issue of the
Springer Journal of Signal Processing Systems (JSPS).
