Call for Papers

7th IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing
8-9 December 2022
San Francisco, CA, USA

The 7th IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing (ICRC 2022) will be held from December 8th-9th 2022 in San Francisco, in conjunction with IEDM. 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 7th year, the IEEE International Conference on Rebooting Computing is the premier venue for forward-looking research across the computing stack, including novel materials, devices, circuits, algorithms and languages, system software, system and network architectures. This is an interdisciplinary conference that has participation from a broad technical community and work encompassing co-design across the computing stack is particularly 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.

Topics of Interest

  • Future computing approaches, including neuromorphic, brain-inspired computing, approximate and probabilistic computing, and analog and physical computing; computing based on novel device physics and materials; energy-efficient computing including reversible, adiabatic, and ballistic computing, superconductor and cryogenic computing; quantum computing; optical computing; biological and biochemical computing; non-von Neumann computer architectures (e.g., in-memory processing, memory-based computing, content addressable memory, cellular automata, or neural networks); graph processing architectures.
  • Future computing design aspects, including extending Moore’s law and augmenting CMOS; error-tolerant logic and circuits; future of design automation; post-CMOS, 3D, heterogeneous integration and packaging; future impact on performance, power, scalability, reliability, and supportability; modeling and simulation tools for future computing.
  • Future Software and Applications, including beyond von Neumann system software issues (operating systems, compilers, security, and resource management); future computing programming paradigms and languages; applications suitable for and driving next generation computing (e.g., machine learning, deep learning.); algorithms that are enabled by or optimized for new computing approaches.
  • Future computing use cases and prototypes, including ethics in design, implementation, and use; new technologies impacting the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS); cybersecurity in future computing systems.

Paper Submission – Two Track Format – New for 2022

 ICRC is a multidisciplinary forum, spanning materials and devices through computer architectures and algorithms. As such, we are adopting two tracks that are meant to reflect different common practices in the fields of interest to ICRC. You will need to select from the following two formats that best fits with your content:

Short Paper: 5-pages (excluding refs)

  • Each accepted paper will receive a 15-minute speaking slot.


Long Paper: 10-pages (excluding refs)

  • Each accepted paper will receive a 30-minute speaking slot.



Important Dates

  • Paper submissions due: 17 October 2022 (11:00 pm PDT) extended
  • Author notification of acceptance: 11 November 2022
  • Final copies of papers due: 28 November 2022
  • Conference: 8 December – 9 December 2022

Organizing Committee

  • General Chair: Thomas Conte (Georgia Tech)
  • Technical Program Chair: Matthew Marinella (Arizona State University)
