Call for Papers
The 8th Annual IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing
5-6 December 2023
San Diego, CA, USA
The 8th IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC) 2023 will be held from December 5-6, 2022, in San Diego, CA, USA. 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 community represents multiple IEEE Societies and Councils, and the membership in the technical community is over two thousand. For more information on the RCI please visit the Rebooting Computing Portal.
Now, in its 8th year, IEEE ICRC 2023 is the premier venue for forward-looking research across the computing stack, including novel materials, devices, circuits, algorithms, languages, system software, and system and network architectures. This is an interdisciplinary conference that has participation from a broad technical community, and novel research contributions encompassing co-design across the computing stack are highly encouraged. Bridging analog and neural computing, reversible and quantum computing, and other new architectures, the broad scope of ICRC extends to many areas of interest, including harnessing novel device physics and materials for energy efficiency, performance, density, and unique computing capabilities.

- Future Computing Use Cases and Prototypes: Including but not limited to ethics in design, implementation, and use; new technologies impacting the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS); cybersecurity in future computing systems.
ICRC is a multidisciplinary forum, spanning materials and devices through computer architectures, algorithms, and applications. As such, we are adopting multiple tracks that are meant to reflect different common practices in the fields of interest to ICRC. Please select from the following formats that best fits with your content:
- Long Papers (10 pages): These papers should present novel, impactful, and original research pertaining to any of the above topics of interest. If accepted, they will be featured as full talks and included in the conference proceedings. The page limit includes references and all supporting material.
- Short Papers (5 pages): These papers should present preliminary results pertaining to any of the above topics of interest. If accepted, they will be featured as short talks and included in the conference proceedings. The page limit includes references and all supporting material.
- Extended Abstracts (1 page): These submissions should present an idea, position, or salient results in any of the above topics of interest. They need not present original research. If accepted, these will be featured as short talks but NOT included in the conference proceedings. The page limit includes references and all supporting material.
- Special Session Proposals (2 pages): The special session proposals can include workshops, tutorials, panels, birds of a feather sessions, or demonstrations on any of the above topics of interest. These sessions need not present original research. The special sessions will last for 1-2 hours. They will not be included in the conference proceedings. The page limit includes references and all supporting material.
