March 12, 2019 — The 4th IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing has issued a call for papers. The event will be held November 6-8 in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. ICRC is a premier venue for novel computing approaches. ICRC grew out of the IEEE Rebooting Computing Initiative (RCI), which was founded in 2012 to catalyze rethinking of the computer at all levels of the technology stack. The Rebooting Computing Committee represents thirteen IEEE Societies and Councils, and the membership in the Rebooting Computing Technical Community is approaching three thousand. For more information on the RCI please visit the Rebooting Computing Portal (http://rebootingcomputing.ieee.org).
Now in its 4th year, the IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing is the premier venue for forward looking computing, including algorithms and languages, system software, system and network architectures, new devices and circuits, and applications of new materials and physics. This is an interdisciplinary conference that has participation from a broad technical community, with emphasis on all aspects of the computing stack. The broad scope of ICRC extends to many areas of interest, including novel device physics and materials for post-Moore, beyond CMOS, and non-von Neumann computing paradigms.
