Call For Papers
The next ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers will be held May 11th - 13th in Sicily, Italy in the town of Catania. 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 transform society.

CF's broad scope is driven by recent technological advances in wide-ranging fields impacthing computing, such as memory hardware and systems, network and systems architecture, cloud computing, novel device physics and materials, power efficiency, new application domains of machine and deep learning and big data analytics, and systems portability and wearability. 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 to supercomputers and datacenters.
