[DMANET] Call for Participation: Early registration deadline 4/15 ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2015 (CF'15)

ACM International Conference on Computing Frontiers 2015 (CF'15)
May 18 - 21, 2015, Ischia, Italy



Computing Frontiers represents an engaged, collaborative community
of researchers who are excited about transformational technologies
in the field of computing. We are presently on the cusp of several
revolutions, including new memory technologies, networking
technologies, algorithms for handling large-scale data, power-saving
and energy-efficient solutions for data centers, systems solutions
for cloud computing, new application domains that affect every day
life and many, many more. Boundaries between the state-of-the-art
and revolutionary innovation constitute the computing frontiers that
must be pushed forward to advance science, engineering, and
information technology. Before revolutionary materials, devices,
and systems enter the mainstream, early research must be performed
using far-reaching projections of the future state of technologies.

CF'15 provides an excellent mix of technical presentations. In
addition to research and industrial paper presentations, there will
be two keynote speeches

* Gianfranco Bilardi, University of Padova:
Network Oblivious Algorithms

* Pietro Leo, IBM Italy CTO Big Data Analytics & Watson:
From managing Data to managing Cogs: Digital Transformation & Data
is changing our ways to work and interact with machines

This year's conference also includes three affiliated workshops focusing
on cutting-edge topics:

* Future Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex Systems

* LP-EMS15 - Design of Low Power Embedded Multimedia Systems

* Analytics Platforms for the Cloud
