Conference 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




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


* 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.



We are pleased to host several co-located workshops on topics closely

related to Computing Frontiers. These workshops will be announced




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).
