Conference description and Call for Papers

The increasing complexity, performance, cost and energy efficiency needs of current and future applications require novel and innovative approaches to computing. 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 computer science, engineering and information technology. The Computing Frontiers conference focuses on a wide spectrum of advanced methodologies, technologies and radically new solutions relevant to the development of the whole spectrum of computing over the next few decades. The goals of the meeting range over from embedded to high-performance computing.

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: 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.

Authors are invited to submit full papers to the main conference and PhD. students are invited to submit an extended abstract for a special PhD. forum and poster session. The accepted PhD. forum extended abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings.

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 Computing Frontiers proceedings. The proposals should be submitted through the submission site and should include a description of the resources required for the demo.

Full papers must be submitted through the conference paper submission site and should not exceed 10 double-column pages and extended abstracts cannot exceed 4 double-column pages in standard ACM conference format, including figures, tables, and references. As per ACM guidelines, at least one of the authors of accepted papers is required to register for the conference
