================================================================== ACM 
International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2018 (CF'18) May 8 - 10, 
2018, Ischia, Italy CALL FOR PAPERS www.computingfrontiers.org 
International Conference on Computing Frontiers will be held May 8 - 10 
in Ischia, Italy. Computing Frontiers is an eclectic, collaborative 
community of researchers who investigate emerging technologies in the 
broad field of computing: our common goal is to drive the scientific 
breakthroughs that transform society. Technology is experiencing 
revolutions in memory devices and systems, networks, electronic device 
production, machine learning, data analytics, cloud computing, 
techniques to improve power and energy efficiency, systems 
portability/wearability, to name but a few areas. New application 
domains that affect everyday life are emerging, especially in the era of 
highly interconnected and collaborative cyber-physical systems. 
Boundaries between the state-of-the-art and revolutionary innovation 
constitute the frontiers that mark the advances of science, engineering, 
and information technology. Early research that envisions future 
technologies provides the bases that allow novel materials, devices, and 
systems to become mainstream. Collaborative efforts among researchers 
with different expertises and backgrounds enables revolutionary 
scientific breakthroughs that lead to innovative solutions over a wide 
spectrum of computer systems, from embedded and hand-held/wearable 
devices to supercomputers and data centers. Students are encouraged to 
apply for travel support to attend the conference. Request for support 
should be submitted at the time of registration. Preference will be 
given to students who are authors of accepted papers. IMPORTANT DATES 
=============== Submissions deadline: January 21, 2018 Notification: 
March 7, 2018 Camera-Copy Papers Due: March 31, 2018 Conference Dates: 
May 8 - 10, 2018 TOPICS OF INTEREST ================== We seek original 
research contributions at the frontiers of a wide range of topics, 
including novel computing paradigms, computational models, algorithms, 
application paradigms, development environments, compilers, operating 
environments, computer architecture, hardware substrates, memory 
technologies, and smarter life applications: * Algorithms and Models of 
Computing -- Approximate and inexact computing, quantum computing, and 
probabilistic computing * Biological Computing Models -- Brain 
computing, neural computing, computational neuroscience, and 
biologically-inspired architectures * Limits on Technology Scaling and 
Moore's Law -- Defect- and variability-tolerant designs, graphene and 
other novel materials, nanoscale design, optoelectronics, and dark 
silicon * Uses of Technology Scaling -- 3D stacked technology, 
challenges of many-core designs, accelerators, PCM's, novel memory 
architectures, dealing with manufacturing variability, and mobile 
devices * Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems -- Design space 
exploration, modeling and development frameworks for interconnected 
systems and CPS and CPSoS, ultra-low power designs, energy scavenging, 
reactive and real-time systems, reconfigurable and self-aware systems, 
robotics, sensor networks and internet of things, and architectural 
innovation for wearable computing * Big Data Analytics -- High 
performance data analytics, data search and representation, 
architecture, and system design * Machine and Deep Learning -- 
innovative algorithms, innovative architectures, and neuromorphic 
approaches * Large-Scale System Design -- Homogeneous and heterogeneous 
architectures, runtimes, networking technologies and protocols, power- 
and energy-management for cloud and grid systems, data centers, and 
exa-scale computing * Fault tolerance and resilience -- solutions for 
ultra-large and safety-critical systems, and hardware and software 
approaches to cope with adverse environments such as space * Compiler 
Technologies -- Advanced/novel analyses, hardware/software integrated 
solutions, domain-specific languages, and high-level synthesis * 
Security -- Methods, system support, and hardware for protecting against 
malicious code; real-time implementations of security algorithms and 
protocols; quantum and post-quantum cryptography; advanced persistent 
threats, cyber and physical attacks, and countermeasures * Computers and 
Society -- Education, health, cost/energy-efficient design, smart 
cities, and emerging markets * Interdisciplinary Applications -- 
Applications bridging multiple disciplines in interesting ways We also 
strongly encourage submissions in emerging fields that may not fit into 
traditional categories -- if in doubt, please contact the PC co-chairs 
by email. CONFERENCE WEBSITE ================== 
http://www.computingfrontiers.org/ WORKSHOPS ========= We are pleased to 
host the following co-located workshops: * International Workshop on Big 
Data Analytics (BigDAW '18) Website: 
https://www.zurich.ibm.com/BigDataAnalytics/ * 4th International 
Workshop on Design of Low Power EMbedded Systems (LP-EMS '18) Website: 
http://lpems.insa-rennes.fr/ * Malicious Software and Hardware in the 
Internet of Things (MAL-IoT '18) Website: http://mal-iot2018.alari.ch/ * 
Workshop on Sensor Data Fusion and Machine Learning for the Next 
Generation of Cyber-Physical Systems (SeFuMAL '18) Website: 
https://sites.google.com/site/sefumalworkshop/home SUBMISSION ========== 
Submission website: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cf18 Authors 
are invited to submit full or short papers to the main conference. 
Papers must be submitted through the conference submission website. 
Authors must declare in advance to which category they are submitting. 
Full papers are a maximum of eight (8) double-column pages in ACM 
conference format with an option for authors to buy up to 2 extra pages 
after acceptance. Short paper submissions should be at least two (2) 
pages and not more than four (4) pages in the same format. These limits 
include figures, tables, and references. Our review process is 
double-blind: please remove all identifying information from the paper 
submission (and cite your own work in the third person). Short papers 
may cover on-going research that is seeking for early feedback and will 
be presented at the conference as oral presentation in a dedicated slot 
and in a poster session. Both full and short papers will be published in 
the proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library. Authors of selected best 
papers will be invited to contribute with an extension of their work in 
a Special Issue of JSPS. In addition to the best paper award from 
current submissions, dedicated to Stamatis Vassiliadis, CF18 will 
introduce an award for the most influential work from past Computing 
Frontiers conferences, dedicated to the memory of Utpal Banerjee.
