 ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2016 (CF'16)

 May 16 - 18, 2016, Como, Italy


Three Workshops are co-located with Computing Frontiers 2016 to
further have the possibility to share and discuss on a wide spectrum
of advanced technologies and radically new solutions relevant to the
development of a spectrum of computer systems, from embedded devices
to supercomputers and data centers.


 Co-Located Workshops:

 ### LP-EMS16 - 2nd Workshop on design of Low Power EMbedded Systems

 ### BigDAW16 - Big Data Analytic

 ### Malicious Software and Hardware in Internet of Things


### LP-EMS16 - 2nd Workshop on design of Low Power EMbedded Systems Aim and Scope: Modern cyber-physical and highly networked systems may impose challenging and conflicting requirements. Implementing real-time high-performance systems and minimizing, contemporarily, their power consumption is not straightforward. It implies to devise advanced modelling strategies as well as efficient design automation techniques that have the capacity to optimize complex parallel applications over heterogeneous many-cores platforms. Complexity on algorithmic side and heterogeneity on hardware side are colliding system constraints, which can be tackled by adopting hw/sw co-design solutions and flexible design frameworks. With respect to this context, we expect contributions in different fields of digital signal processing such as: telecommunication, multimedia, medical imaging, computing graphics, biomedical applications... and many others! Papers may include, but are not limited to, the following topics: - High-level synthesis and hw/sw co-design techniques for low-power digital signal/image processing; - Design of self-energy aware systems; - Design space exploration techniques, with special emphasis on power/energy estimations and power minimization methodologies; - Parallel/high throughput processing techniques for low-power digital signal/image processing; - Algorithm-level optimization, low-complexity algorithm for low-power digital signal/image processing; - MPEG Green Metadata; - Dynamic voltage and frequency scaling, hw and sw dynamic power management. Workshop Organizers: Francesca Palumbo, Universita degli Studi di Sassari, PolComIng Maxime Pelcat, INSA de Rennes, IETR Daniel Menard, INSA de Rennes, IETR Workshop website: http://hpc.pnl.gov/LP-EMS16/Home.html Paper Submission Deadline: February 6, 2016


### Big Data Analytics Managing and processing large volumes of data, or "Big Data" and gaining meaningful insights is a significant challenge facing the distributed computing community; as a consequence, many business are demanding large scale streaming data analytics. This has significant impact in a wide range of domains including health care, bio-medical research, Internet search, finance and business informatics, and scientific computing. Despite considerable advancements on high performance, large storage, and high computation power, there are challenges in identifying, clustering, classifying, and interpreting of a large spectrum of information. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a fertile ground for collaboration between research institutions and industries and in analytics, machine learning, and high performance computing. Topics of interest are: - High performance data analytics - Machine and deep learning - Data search and representation - Architecture and system design - Cloud-based big data solutions - Software infrastructures Workshop Organizers: Roberta Piscitelli, EGI.eu<http://EGI.eu> Workshop Website: http://go.egi.eu/BigDAW16 Paper Submission Deadline: February 10, 2016


### Malicious Software and Hardware in Internet of Things Aim and Scope: Cyber-physical and smart embedded systems, already highly networked, will be even more connected in the near future to form the Internet of Things, handling large amounts of private and safety critical data. The pervasive diffusion of these devices will create several threats to privacy and could open new possibilities for attackers, since the security of even larger portions of the Internet of Things could be harmed by compromising a reduced number of components. The possibility of securely updating devices should be guaranteed and it should be possible to verify and assert the root of trust of components. With respect to this context we expect contributions in different areas of security in Internet of Things. Topics of the workshop include but are not limited to: - Malicious firmware design and detection - Malware in Internet of Things applications - Hardware root of trust - Privacy issues of smart-home systems and complex systems - Hardware Trojans and their effects on systems - Hardware authentication and IP protection - Secure communication and key-management - Implementation attacks and countermeasures - Emerging threats and attack vectors in the Internet of Things - Supply chain security Workshop Organizers: Georg T. Becker, Ruhr-University Bochum Francesco Regazzoni, ALaRI - USI Workshop Website: http://www.alari.ch/mal-iot2016/ Paper Submission Deadline: February 10, 2016
