The 9th ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers
May 15-17, 2012, Cagliari, Italy
Sponsored by ACM SIGMICRO
http://www.computingfrontiers.org

The increasing complexity, performance, cost and energy efficiency needs of current and future applications require novel and innovative approaches for the design of computing systems. Boundaries between state of the art and revolutionary innovation constitute the computing frontiers that must be pushed forward to provide the support required for the advancement of science, engineering and information technology. The Computing Frontiers conference focuses on a wide spectrum of advanced technologies and radically new solutions relevant to the development of the whole spectrum of computer systems, from embedded to high-performance computing.

Authors are invited to submit full papers to the main conference and Ph.D. students are invited to submit an extended abstract for a special Ph.D. forum and poster session We seek contributions on novel computing paradigms, computational models, application paradigms, computer architecture, development environments, compilers, or operating environments. Papers are solicited in, but not limited to, the following areas:

• Applications, programming and performance analysis of advanced architectures

• Next-generation high performance computing and systems

• Accelerators: many-core, GPU, custom, reconfigurable, embedded, and hybrid

• Defect- and variability-tolerant designs, dependable computing

• Power and energy efficiency: architectures, compilers and algorithms

• Virtualization and virtual machines

• Cloud-, internet-scale, service-oriented and smart infrastructure computing

• Compilers and operating systems: adaptive, run-time, and auto-tuning

• System management and security

• Impact of novel technology (e.g. NV memory, silicon photonics) on computing

• Computational neuroscience, neuromorphic and biologically-inspired architectures

• Computational aspects of intelligent systems and robotics

• Reconfigurable, autonomic, organic, and self-organizing computation and systems

• Interfaces and visualization for emerging applications and systems

• Novel frontiers in computational science and scientific data repositories

• Storing, managing, analysing, and searching large data sets (" big data ")

• Sensors and sensor networks.
