COMPUTE 2017, 10th in the series of ACM India’s flagship conference will be held at SIRT, Bhopal from November 16th to 18th, 2017. The Program Committee of COMPUTE 2017 invites submission of technical papers for the main track of the conference. Along with the general track of usual events, keeping in mind the explosive interest in Artificial Intelligence and its applications, this year a special track will be dedicated to the theme of “Artificial Intelligence: Current Trends and Future Impact”. Born in the 1970s, Artificial Intelligence is still an active area of research interest in which has been growing by leaps and bound with the whole world focused on designing machines that have the ability to make human-like decisions. The aim is to build machines that can exhibit general intelligence along with emotions and also have the ability to learn. The impact of Artificial Intelligence is evident today in all aspects of modern life thereby bringing it out of the closet of academic research to the ambit of the common man. COMPUTE has always been focused on the theme of High Performance Computing. Along with increasing accessibility to high performance computing platforms, there has been a steady growth in reliability of big data analytics and management. Like previous years, this year’s COMPUTE will also focus on software engineering issues around building special-purpose computational systems.
The AI success story of recent times also owes a lot to a number of factors like mass social participation in data creation, big data repositories created by digitization of processes, sensor-enabled smart environments and availability of massive computational power, often in the form of cloud computing. The intersection of High Performance Computing and AI is proving that cognition problems can be solved in a practical way. Application of AI technology to design economically viable use-cases has led to a huge interest in creating “thinking machines” which are solving practical problems.
While the research community is flooded with the challenges of designing algorithms that can handle uncertainties, ambiguities, complex inferential reasoning, predictive computing and real-time decision making using massive data, the increasing presence of intelligent systems in all walks of life is also leading to high levels of interaction between man and the thinking machines – giving birth to more challenges and debates. The entire society is now debating whether Artificial Intelligence is a boon or a bane to the future of human existence. Is Artificial Intelligence going to make the lives of humans easier or is it going to make it more difficult by reducing employment? Keeping in mind the above issues that are dominating the worlds of academics, industry planners and analysts, submissions are invited from both researchers and practitioners which address some of these aspects. All submitted papers will be reviewed by experts in the field and will be finally selected based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality of work and clarity of presentation. Maintaining the tradition of COMPUTE, papers in all areas of Computer Science, not specifically addressing AI problems are also welcome. A broad set of topics of interest and An indicative set of topics of general interest for the conference are given below. These are only indicative and not exhaustive.

All submissions must be prepared in ACM conference format, in English and must not exceed 10 pages (including figures, references and appendices). Guidelines for paper formatting can be found here. Submissions that violate formatting will be declined without review.Papers must be submitted electronically through the Paper Submission for Compute2k17 All submissions will be subject to plagiarism check. Papers submitted for consideration should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper in the conference. Only the presented papers will be included in the proceedings. Papers that do not make the grade for publication, yet show promise, may be selected for poster presentation instead. If you are specifically interested in submitting a poster, then please ensure that the paper does not exceed 5 pages (including figures, references and appendices). Like previous years, The conference Proceeding of COMPUTE-2k17 will be published byACM Digital Library.
All papers will be passed through a special ACM plagiarism check
