    ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2023 (CF'23)
                         May 9th - 11th, 2023

                            CALL FOR PAPERS
                   Deadline: January 27th, 2023 (AoE)


The next ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers will take
place on May 9th - 11th, 2023. Computing Frontiers 2023 will be held
in person in the town of Bologna, Italy.

Computing Frontiers is an eclectic, interdisciplinary, collaborative
community of researchers who investigate emerging technologies in the
broad field of computing: our common goal is to drive the scientific
breakthroughs that support society.

CF's broad scope is driven by recent technological advances
in wide-ranging fields impacting computing, such as novel computing
models and paradigms, advancements in hardware, network and systems
architecture, cloud computing, novel device physics and materials,
new application domains of artificial intelligence, big data
analytics, wearables and IoT. The boundaries between the
state-of-the-art and revolutionary innovation constitute the advancing
frontiers of science, engineering, and information technology — and
are the CF community focus. CF provides a venue to share, discuss,
and advance broad, forward-thinking, early research on the future of
computing and welcomes work on a wide spectrum of computer systems,
from embedded and hand-held/wearable devices to supercomputers and

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.




We encourage the submission of both full and short papers containing
high-quality research describing original and unpublished work.

Short papers may be position papers or may describe preliminary or
highly speculative work. Full papers are a maximum of eight (8)
(excluding references) and short papers are a maximum of four (4)
(including references) double-column pages in ACM conference format.
Authors may buy up to two (2) extra pages for accepted full papers.
Page limits include figures, tables and appendices, but exclude
references for full papers. As the review process is double-blind,
removal of all identifying information from paper submissions is
required (i.e., cite own work in third person). Papers not conforming
to the above submission policies on formatting, page limits and the
removal of identifying information, will be automatically rejected.
Authors are strongly advised to submit their papers with the final
list of authors in the submission system, as changes may not be
feasible at later stages.

By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby
acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM
Publications Policies, including ACM's new Publications Policy on
Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations
of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by
ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to
other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.

No-show policy: Any accepted papers are expected to be presented
in-person at the conference and at least one full registration is
required from a submission author for each accepted paper. A no-show
of papers will result in exclusion from the ACM digital library
proceedings. If circumstances arise such that authors are unable to
present their papers at the conference, they must contact the PC
co-chairs with a proposal for a replacement presenter.


Stage 1 - Paper submission: The short or full papers must be submitted
by January 27, 2023 (AoE).
Stage 2 - Authors Notifications: March 17th, 2023.
Stage 3 - Camera Ready: March 24, 2023.


The CF23 Organizing Committee strongly encourages authors on a
voluntary basis to present the Artifact Evaluation documentation to
support their scientific results. The Artifact Evaluation is run by a
different committee after the acceptance of the paper and does not
affect the paper evaluation itself.

Authors may submit the artifact during the submission period or after
the notification. To arrange the CF23 AE Committee and the necessary
computing resources, authors are invited to flag the option during the
paper registration if they are willing to participate in the

* Artifact Preparation

   CF23  adopts the ACM Artifact Review and Badging (Version 1.1 -
   August 24, 2020). By "artifact", we mean a digital object that was
   either created by the authors to be used as part of the study or
   generated by the experiment itself. Typical artifacts may include
   system description or scripts to install the environment or
   reproduce specific experiments. Authors are invited to include a
   one-page appendix to the main paper (after the references). The
   appendix does not count in the page limit.

   To prepare the Appendix, authors may refer to the following guide
   https://ctuning.org/ae/checklist.html to avoid common mistakes.
   A Latex template can be found at the following link:

* Review Process

   The Artifact Evaluation (AE) Committee will reproduce the paper by
   following the instructions included in the appendix and verify ACM
   roles for assigned badges. For example, in order to have a paper
   with an Artifact Available badge, the code and data should be stored
   in a permanent archive with a DOI or another unique identifier.

   Authors may be invited by the AE Committee to revise their
   instructions according to their feedback. At the end of the process,
   AE Committee will recommend one or more badges to assign to the
   paper among those supported by the ACM reproducibility policy.
