Call For Papers
 The 21st ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers (CF’24) will take place May 7th - 9th, 2024 in Ischia, Naples, Italy. Participation is in-person only.

Computing Frontiers (CF) is an eclectic, interdisciplinary, collaborative community of researchers investigating 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’s 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 data centers.
