Abstract Submission:  Monday February 8, 11:59pm EST
Acceptance/rejection:  February 22, 2010

Of course, the Wild and Crazy Idea session can only be as good as the submissions. Thus, the success of this session depends crucially on you. Submissions should consist of no more than a one-page abstract, including three major parts: 

  1. a description of the problem that you are tackling, 
  2. a description of your solution, and 
  3. a justification for why your solution is a good one.

We plan to post all submissions on the web after the conference.  Please let us know if you do not want your abstract posted.

Ideas will be selected based on their originality and distance of "forward-lookingness". Here is the one venue in which radicalness (although not "flakiness") will be rewarded. All aspects of computer architecture and systems organization are fair game: new computational models, interesting computing substrates (biological, quantum, etc), new architectural features, interesting solutions to pressing problems (such as design complexity, power consumption, etc.). Anyone can submit, but only serious submissions, please.

Send submissions to wildandcrazy@cs.cmu.edu by Monday February 8, 2010.  Please submit in PDF format. Please put "wild and crazy submission" in the subject.

IF YOU DO NOT GET A CONFIRMATION EMAIL WITHIN 24 HOURS, please contact seth!
