ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2019 (CF'19)
April 30 - May 2, 2019, Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

Submission Deadline: March 11th, 2019


The next ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers will be held
April 30 - May 2 in Alghero, Sardinia, 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, and 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.

Following the regular paper submissions, the Organizing Committee of the
2019 Computing Frontiers conference announces the addition to the program
of a **brand new Poster Session**. We open an extended period to encourage
poster paper submissions covering very latest research findings,
works-in-progress and incipient positioning ideas and results in all
aspects of computing. The **two-page poster papers will be included in the
conference proceedings** and the authors will **retain copyright**..

Besides the standard display of posters, the session will commence with
**lightning talks**, a.k.a. elevator pitch, where authors will introduce
their work to the attendees. There will be a **Best Poster Award** based on
voting by the Poster Program Committee.

Submissions Deadline: March 11th, 2019
Author Notification: March 25th, 2019
Camera-Ready Papers Due: April 1st, 2019

Authors must submit a **two-page extended abstract** (including references)
describing the content and the research ideas in the poster. The extended
abstract should be structured similar to a technical paper. All poster
submissions will be reviewed by the Poster Program Committee. Submissions
will be handled through EasyChair at:
