Wild and Crazy Ideas (WACI) Call for Submissions:

Keeping with the decade-long ASPLOS tradition of holding
Wild and Crazy Ideas sessions, ASPLOS 2014 is looking for
forward looking, visionary, inspiring, far out and just
plain amazing ideas for its WACI session.
What we are aiming for is a session full of creativity
presented in an exciting way. We do not have a prescribed
list of topics. Anything directly or indirectly related
to computing systems is appropriate. If you are unsure
whether a topic is appropriate, please get in touch with
the WACI organizers via the email address below.

This is a great opportunity to show the community new
directions, new ideas, new ways of thinking, new perspectives,
etc. So why not use some time over the next week to brainstorm
with your colleagues and friends and submit a great idea?
Please submit!

Submission instructions:
You can submit either a 2-page abstract or a 6-minute video
or narrated slide deck.
