Call for Paper ACM conference Computing Frontier 2012
I am Glad to invite you to participate in the upcoming conference, IEEE
computing Frontier 2012
The 9th ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers
May 15-17, 2012, Cagliari, Italy
Sponsored by ACM SIGMICRO
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
· Applications, programming and performance analysis of advanced
· Next-generation high performance computing and systems
· Accelerators: many-core, GPU, custom, reconfigurable, embedded,
· Defect- and variability-tolerant designs, dependable computing
· Power and energy efficiency: architectures, compilers and
· Virtualization and virtual machines
· Cloud-, internet-scale, service-oriented and smart infrastructure
· Compilers and operating systems: adaptive, run-time, and
· System management and security
· Impact of novel technology (e.g. NV memory, silicon photonics) on
· Computational neuroscience, neuromorphic and
· 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
· Storing, managing, analysing, and searching large data sets ("
big data ")
· Sensors and sensor networks.
Paper Submission Deadline January 25, 2012
Ph.D. Forum Deadline January 25, 2012
Author Notification March 7, 2012
What emerging tech are you excited about using in your genealogy? We can discuss it all. There are more in-depth lists about various aspects of DNA testing, but we can do general discussions about how best to choose tests and then to use results to further our family histories.
Do you use Facebook and other social media in your genealogy work? How about blogging, tweeting, using wikis, mapping, new genealogy websites? Tell us what you are trying, and what is working for you, and what is a waste of time or money.
Welcome to the EMERGINGTECH mailing list!!
PLEASE SAVE THIS INFORMATION so you have it for future reference.
PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE of your fellow list members. Some folks are beginners at computers and some to genealogy. The world is a better place when we are all patient with each other. Personal attacks, criticism, or flaming are never permitted.
HOW DO YOU POST? Send an email to email@example.com
WHAT SHOULD YOU POST?
1. Questions about your ancestors. Give as much detail as you can.
2. Interesting history that is relevant to the list.
3. Genealogy and family history conferences, even if they charge for admission.
4. Genealogy societies should feel free to post about their society and their websites.
5. Book reviews of genealogy books are reasonable to post. A list of books is not, but sharing a good genealogy book you've found is a good idea.
6. Links to personal blogs that are about genealogy. They can be your blog or another. Even if the blog has ads, that is not a problem.
7. New collections on various genealogy sites that are relevant. We don't want advertisements, but if you find an interesting collection on Ancestry, FamilySearch, Library of Congress, or some other site that has relevance to the list, let people know.
WHAT SHOULD BE IN YOUR POST?
1. An informative but concise subject line.
2. When replying to a previous message, be sure to check that the intended recipient's address is showing in the Send To box of your email BEFORE clicking on SEND.
3. Proofread and be sure you want your post public. All posts go in the archives!
WANT TO UNSUBSCRIBE?
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and put unsubscribe in the subject and body and nothing else.
