CAP: Computer Architecture & Platforms

Call for Papers

The Computer Architecture & Platforms Symposium (CAP) aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners that study and build computer systems consisting of disparate components, using different metrics and methods, but providing synergetic effects.  These systems usually act as reusable supporting platforms for a wide range of applications, potentially restricted by specific domains.
CAP is uniquely positioned within COMPSAC to address relevant topics related to the conception, design, deployment and utilization of a variety of architectures and platforms – from mobile to networked data centers. Non-limiting topics include:
  • requirements analysis
  • co-analysis, co-design and co-verification
  • modeling, design, development, testing, measurement, verification and validation for function, performance, safety, security, and dependability constraints of cyber-physical systems and networked systems.
The effective construction of computing systems is not restricted solely to the field of computer science and engineering, but it is truly a multidisciplinary effort. Multidisciplinary work, research and development of software prototypes, industry-university collaborations, all based on emerging and critical concepts and technologies are of particular interest to this symposium.

Important Dates

UPDATED: Main conference papers due: 18 Feb 2021

Paper notification: 15 April 2021

Camera-ready and registration due: 15 May 2021

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work, as well as industrial practice reports. Simultaneous submission to other publication venues is not permitted.  In accordance with IEEE policy, submitted manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism. Instances of alleged misconduct will be handled according to the IEEE Publication Services and Product Board Operations Manual.

Please note that in order to ensure the fairness of the review process, COMPSAC follows the double-blind review procedure. Therefore we kindly ask authors to remove their names, affiliations and contacts from the header of their papers in the review version. Please also redact all references to authors’ names, affiliations or prior works from the paper when submitting papers for review. Once accepted, authors can then include their names, affiliations and contacts in the camera-ready revision of the paper, and put the references to their prior works back.


Page limits are inclusive of tables, figures, appendices, and references. Full conference papers and workshop papers can add an additional 2 pages with additional page charges ($250USD/page).

Full conference papers: 10 pages Journal then Conference (JC) papers: 2 pages Industrial Practice Reports: 10 pages Short Papers: 6 pages Fast Abstracts: 2 pages Student Research Symposium papers: 4 pages Posters: 1 page
