                              CALL FOR PAPERS

                       ACM International Conference on

                           Computing Frontiers

                        Ischia, Italy, May 14-16 2013




The increasing complexity, performance, cost and energy efficiency
needs of current and future applications require novel and innovative
approaches for the design of computing systems. 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 science, engineering and information
technology. The Computing Frontiers conference focuses 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.


Submission Deadline:               January 18, 2013
Ph.D. Forum Deadline:              February 8, 2013
Notification of Acceptance:        February 28, 2013
Final Papers Due:                  March 15, 2013


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.

Thematic Tracks:

* Algorithms and Models of Computing: Approximate and Inexact, Quantum
   and Probabilistic Computing, Neuromorphic Architectures
* Big Data: Analytics, Machine Learning, Search and Representation,
   System Design
* System Complexity Management: Cloud Systems, Datacenters,
   Computational Neuroscience, Neuromorphic and Biologically-inspired
* Computers and Society: Education, Health and Frugal Design
   delivering significantly lower energy and cost, Smart Cities and
   Urban Design
* Security: Architecture and Systems support for Side-channel attacks,
* 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

General track:

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.

Demo Night:

We are pleased to announce that this year Computing Frontiers will
feature a special  DEMO NIGHT  session, to present EU and National
collaborative projects, to promote inter-project clustering and
networking, and to show demonstrations (hardware platforms, prototypes,
design frameworks, tools.). Short papers up to 3 pages, presenting the
projects, their technical challenges and the objectives of the
demonstration, are going to be included in the Computing Frontiers
proceedings. The proposals should be submitted through the conference
submission site and should include a description of the resources
required for the demo.


Authors are invited to submit full papers to the main conference and
short papers with the proposal for the demo night. Ph.D. students are
invited to submit an extended abstract for a special Ph.D. forum and
poster session.

Full papers should not exceed 10 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.

Short papers for the demo night and extended abstracts for the Ph.D.
forum cannot exceed 3 double-column pages. If accepted, both are going
to be included in the Computing Frontiers proceedings.

As per ACM guidelines, at least one of the authors of accepted papers
is required to register for the conference.

The hpc-announce mailing list has been setup to have a common mailing
list to share information with respect to upcoming HPC related
events. You are included in this mailing list based on your
participation or interest in a previous HPC conference or other event.

The purpose for providing a single mailing list is to allow
participants to easily identify such emails, and handle them
appropriately. Some options include:

1. If you feel that the number of such emails is too many, filter them
to less-frequently-read folders in your email client.

2. Change your subscription to a digest option
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce) which will
consolidate emails sent that week into a single summary email.

3. Finally, if you do not wish to receive any emails from hpc-announce,
you can unsubscribe from the mailing list
(https://lists.mcs.anl.gov/mailman/listinfo/hpc-announce). Once
unsubscribed, we guarantee that you will not be added back in through
participation in a different HPC related conference or event. You will
need to send an email to hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov to be added
back on.

If you need help with any of the above, please email us at
hpc-announce-owner at mcs.anl.gov.
