Industry Sessions and Workshops

Computing Frontiers 2015 will feature four Industry Sessions and Workshops that focus on special topics. Submission of papers to the workshops is handled separately from the main conference. Please refer to the websites of the workshops for more details.

Future Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex Systems

FISP-2015 is the first International Workshop on Future Information Security, Privacy, and Forensics for Complex Systems. The aim of FISP-2015 is to provide a premier international platform for scholars, researchers, and practitioners in academia and industry to discuss the most recent challenges and developments in "Information Security, Privacy and Forensics for Complex systems" from the perspective of providing security awareness and its best practices for the real world. This workshop is open to submit novel and high quality research contributions in the field of information security and privacy. We anticipate that this workshop will open new entrance for further research and technology improvements in this important area.

LP-EMS15 - Design of Low Power Embedded Multimedia Systems

Digital Media Technologies (DMTs) constitute one of the widest and most important research areas in the ICT domain. Digital technologies allowed the design of complex systems for creation, fruition and sharing of audio/video/image contents pervading consumer electronics. A key challenge in this domain regards the possibility of implementing real-time high-performance multimedia systems minimizing, contemporarily, their power consumption. Complexity on algorithmic side and heterogeneity on processing platform side, are normally colliding system constraints. It is necessary to close the gap between efficient processing and optimal hardware support by adopting smart hardware-software co-design solutions and flexible design frameworks. In this perspective, dataflow-streaming based system models are naturally capable of capturing domain-specific knowledge into formal abstract system specifications capable of exposing the intrinsic potential parallelism of the algorithms. Such representations result very appropriate to model and explore the design space of DMTs applications.

Analytics Platforms for the Cloud

Cloud computing has become popular because of cost, agility, scale, and flexibility. At the same time, the use of flexible analytic platforms such as Hadoop, Spark, etc. have grown in popularity and are being used to drive the computational side of many types of workloads. Many are now starting to bring these two together to drive efficient deployment of analytic capabilities which can specifically leverage the flexibility and agility of Cloud delivery. The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in analytics and cloud computing an end-to-end view on the challenges and opportunities of cloud-based analytics, and enable idea sharing.
