ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2014 (CF'14)
May 20 - 22, 2014, Cagliari, Italy



Computing Frontiers represents an engaged, collaborative
community of researchers who are excited about transformational
technologies in the field of computing. We are presently on the
cusp of several revolutions, including new memory technologies,
networking technologies, algorithms for handling large-scale data,
power-saving and energy-efficient solutions for data centers,
systems solutions for cloud computing, and many, many more.
Boundaries between the state-of-the-art and revolutionary innovation
constitute the computing frontiers that must be pushed forward to
advance science, engineering, and information technology.
Before revolutionary materials, devices, and systems enter the
mainstream, early research must be performed using far-reaching
projections of the future state of technologies.

Computing Frontiers is a gathering for people to share and discuss
such work, focusing 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

We seek contributions that push the envelope in a wide range of
computing topics, ranging from more traditional research in
architecture and systems to new technologies and devices. We seek
contributions on novel computing paradigms, computational models,
algorithms, application paradigms, development environments,
compilers, operating environments, computer architecture,
hardware substrates, and memory technologies. We are also
interested in emerging fields that may not fit within traditional
