Call for Papers:

ARCS: ‘Quantum Computing: The Dawning of a new Age?’

Final Submission Deadline
July 10, 2022

Heilbronn, Germany
September 13 – 15, 2022
This year’s focus: Quantum Computing: The Dawning of a new Age?


The ARCS conferences series has over 30 years of tradition reporting leading edge research in computer architecture and operating systems. The focus of the 2022 conference will be on quantum computing and its impact on the whole system stack spanning from hardware layer to the software layer. This includes hardware architectures, programming models, runtime environments, cross-sectional topics, and real-world use cases. In addition to the main conference, ARCS will host workshops and special tracks comprising topics like Organic Computing, operating systems and middleware for emerging system, or fault tolerance. More information on the workshops can be found on the ARCS web page. The proceedings of ARCS 2022 are planned to be published in the Springer Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS) series. A best paper and best presentation award will be presented at the conference. This year the conference will be again a physical meeting with a social program. To ensure a safest possible meeting for all participants, we will monitor the Corona situation closely and will take all necessary protection steps following government guidelines as well as extra measures as needed.

Submission guidelines:

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers via EasyChair:
ARCS 2022 uses a double-blind reviewing system. Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliation. When citing own work, it must be
done in a neutral form (i.e. avoiding “our”, “we”, “previous work” etc.). Papers must be submitted in PDF format, formatted according to Springer LNCS style and must not exceed 15 pages, including references, appendices and figures.
