FCCM uses a double blind reviewing system. Manuscripts must not identify
authors or their affiliations. When referencing their own papers, authors are
encouraged to do so in a way in which they do not identify themselves as
authors. References that clearly identify the authors (for example, “We build
on our previous work…”) should be shown as “Removed for blind review”.
Papers that identify authors will not be considered.

FCCM 2015 will continue the tradition of having a best paper award. We will
also invite the authors of the best papers to extend their work to be
considered for publication in a special section of ACM’s Transactions on
Reconfigurable Technology and Systems (TRETS) for FCCM 2015. Send in your

IEEE Micro Special Issue on Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) revolution is happening at an unprecedented pace.
New devices are rapidly emerging every day and virtually every device is a
“smart” device with intelligence built into it and these devices are bred for
connectivity. Widespread connectivity amongst these intelligent devices has
the potential to transform society and lead to a wide range of new
applications and services. To enable this transformation, however, we need a
large number of technological advancements in the hardware and software
communities to come together. In this special call, we solicit papers from a
broad range of areas:

– Architecture design and interface with networking and sensor devices
– Processor, sensor design for edge devices and gateways
– End-to-end system architecture design for IoT
– Edge analytics and big data processing for IoT
– Programming models, runtimes and tools for IoT
– Case studies, practices, and evaluations for IoT
– Cross-cutting issues in IoT systems, including security, portability
– Others (if in doubt about the topic, please contact us)

Please keep in mind that IEEE Micro is about computer architecture at large
and that it is a very high-quality publication. We will enforce these two
criteria strongly to ensure quality readership.
