ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2015 (CF'15)
               May 18 - 21, 2015, Ischia, Italy

                        CALL FOR PAPERS




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, new application domains that affect every day
life 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

This year we are adding Industry Sessions and Workshops that focus
on special topics. These sessions should have a special computing
frontiers focus and can run between 1/2 and a full day.


Submissions deadline:   January 30, 2015
Notification:           March 2, 2015
Camera-Copy Papers Due: March 20, 2015


We seek contributions that push the envelope in a wide range of
computing topics, 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, memory
technologies and smarter life applications.  We are also interested in
emerging fields that may not fit within traditional categories.

### Future Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex Systems

FISP-2015 is the first International Workshop on Future Information
Security, Privacy, and Forensics for Complex Systems. The aim of
FISP-2015 is to provide a premier international platform for scholars,
researchers, and practitioners in academia and industry to discuss the
most recent challenges and developments in "Information Security,
Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems" from the perspective of
providing security awareness and its best practices for the real
world. This workshop is open to submit novel and high quality research
contributions in the field of information security and privacy. We
anticipate that this workshop will open new entrance for further
research and technology improvements in this important area.

 Paper Submission Deadline:  January 16, 2015 (Fri), 11:59:59 PM (PST)
 Workshop website:  http://www.icsrg.org/fisp-2015.html

### LP-EMS15 - Design of Low Power Embedded Multimedia Systems

Digital Media Technologies (DMTs) constitute one of the widest and most
important research areas in the ICT domain. Digital technologies allowed
the design of complex systems for creation, fruition and sharing of
audio/video/image contents pervading consumer electronics. A key
challenge in this domain regards the possibility of implementing
real-time high-performance multimedia systems minimizing,
contemporarily, their power consumption.  Complexity on algorithmic side
and heterogeneity on processing platform side, are normally colliding
system constraints. It is necessary to close the gap between efficient
processing and optimal hardware support by adopting smart
hardware-software co-design solutions and flexible design frameworks.
In this perspective, dataflow-streaming based system models are
naturally capable of capturing domain-specific knowledge into formal
abstract system specifications capable of exposing the intrinsic
potential parallelism of the algorithms.  Such representations result
very appropriate to model and explore the design space of DMTs

### Analytics Platforms for the Cloud

Cloud computing has become popular because of cost, agility, scale, and
flexibility.  At the same time, the use of flexible analytic platforms
such as Hadoop, Spark, etc. have grown in popularity and are being used
to drive the computational side of many types of workloads.  Many are
now starting to bring these two together to drive efficient deployment
of analytic capabilities which can specifically leverage the flexibility
and agility of Cloud delivery.  The purpose of this workshop is to
provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in analytics and cloud
computing an end-to-end view on the challenges and opportunities of
cloud-based analytics, and enable idea sharing.

 Paper Submission Deadline:  February 8th, 2015

### Making Sense of Sensed Data - Issues in Developing Heterogeneous
   Cognitive Systems

A new frontier in computing is evolving around developing systems that
'sense' and respond to data in ways that represent or mimic human
'cognition'. These advancements represent the intersection of
developments in processor hardware, software, and sensing devices.
Examples include the implementation of low power architectures that
mimic the type of synaptic information transmission that occur in
animal brains (Neuromorphic systems), improvements in probability
based software for big data analysis systems such as Natural Language
Processing, the development of "deep learning systems" which have
demonstrated systems that 'learn' representations of data, and the
explosive growth of user based content in data systems such as cell
phone video etc..  The evolution of these systems is leading to new
possibilities for computing systems to interpret a vast amount of big
data collected by sensors into a meaningful representations and to
learn from that data or draw inferences from it.

 Paper Submission Deadline:  Friday, Feb 13, 2015
 Workshop website:  http://computingfrontiers.org/2015/workshops/MSSD15/
