Computing Frontiers 2012, Cagliari (Italy) Conference Website: 

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.

Authors are invited to submit full papers to the main conference and Ph.D. students are invited to submit an extended abstract for a special Ph.D. forum and poster session We seek contributions on novel computing paradigms, computational models, application paradigms, computer architecture, development environments, compilers, or operating environments. Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

- Applications, programming and performance analysis of advanced architectures
- Next-generation high performance computing and systems
- Accelerators: many-core, GPU, custom, reconfigurable, embedded, and hybrid
- Defect- and variability-tolerant designs, dependable computing
- Power and energy efficiency: architectures, compilers and algorithms
- Virtualization and virtual machines
- Cloud-, internet-scale, service-oriented and smart infrastructure computing
- Compilers and operating systems: adaptive, run-time, and auto-tuning
- System management and security
- Quantum and nano-scale computing
- Impact of novel technology (e.g. NV memory, silicon photonics) on computing
- Computational neuroscience, neuromorphic and biologically-inspired architectures
- Computational aspects of intelligent systems and robotics
- Reconfigurable, autonomic, organic, and self-organizing computation and systems
- Interfaces and visualization for emerging applications and systems
- Novel frontiers in computational science and scientific data repositories
- Storing, managing, analyzing, and searching  large data sets (" big data ")
- Sensors and sensor networks

Two Special Sessions

This year Computing Frontiers will have two special sessions of invited talks on projects from the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme and artificial intelligence for games

Full papers must be submitted through the conference web 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. 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.  Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and Delft University of Technology will present best paper awards dedicated to the memory of Jarek Nieplocha and Stamatis Vassiliadis. As per ACM guidelines, at least one of the authors of accepted papers is required to register for the conference. Additional submission guidelines will be available on the conference web site.

Selected papers will be invited to be extended for a special issue of the Springer International Journal of Parallel Programming (IJPP).
