  • Formal Aspects of Computing

    facFormal Aspects of Computing

    Formal Aspects of Computing: Applicable Formal Methods (FAC) is a Gold Open Access journal publishing contributions at the junction of theory and practice. The objective is to disseminate applicable research. Thus, new theoretical contributions are welcome where they are motivated by potential application; applications of existing formalisms are of interest if they show something novel about the approach or application.


    The term "formal methods" has been applied to a range of notations, theories and tools. There is no doubt that some of these have already had a significant impact on practical applications of computing. Indeed, it is interesting to note that once something is adopted into practical use it is no longer thought of as a formal method. Apart from widely used notations such as those for syntax and state machines, there have been significant applications of specification notations, development methods and tools both for proving general results and for searching for specific conditions. However, the most profound and lasting influence of the formal approach is the way it has illuminated fundamental concepts like those of communication.


    In this spirit, the principal aim of FAC is to promote the growth of computing science, to show its relation to practice and to stimulate applications of apposite formalisms to practical problems. One significant challenge is to show how a range of formal models can be related to each other.

    ACM Games: Research and Practice offers a lighthouse for games research – a central reference point that defines the state of the art on games and playable media across academic research and industry practice. Inclusive in community, discipline, method, and game form, it publishes major reviews, tutorials, and advances on games and playable media that are both practically useful and grounded in robust evidence and argument, alongside case studies, opinions, and dialogues on new developments that will change games. It embraces open science and scholarship and actively champions new and underrepresented voices in games and playable media.

  • Proceedings of the ACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies

    imwutProceedings of the ACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies

    The Proceedings of the ACM on Interactive, Mobile, Wearable and Ubiquitous Technologies (IMWUT) is a premier journal series for research relevant to the post-PC era. Computing technology is becoming increasingly pervasive; embedded throughout the environment as well as in mobile devices, wearables, and the Internet of Things. This is leading to a transformative change in the utility that technology can provide to users and societies, and how people relate to technology. IMWUT covers a broad range of topics relevant to this change, such as mobile systems, wearable technologies and intelligent environments. The scope includes research contributions in systems and infrastructures, new hardware and sensing techniques, and studies of user experiences and societal impact. IMWUT also welcomes contributions on new methodologies and tools, theories and models, as well as visionary and survey papers that help advance the field.

  • ACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems

    jetcACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems

    The ACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems (JETC) invites submissions of original technical papers describing research and development in emerging technologies in computing systems. Major economic and technical challenges are expected to impede the continued scaling of semiconductor devices. This has resulted in the search for alternate mechanical, biological/biochemical, nanoscale electronic, asynchronous and quantum computing, and sensor technologies. As the underlying nanotechnologies continue to evolve in the labs of chemists, physicists, and biologists, it has become imperative for computer scientists and engineers to translate the potential of the basic building blocks (analogous to the transistor) emerging from these labs into information systems. Their design will face multiple challenges ranging from the inherent (un)reliability due to the self-assembly nature of the fabrication processes for nanotechnologies, from the complexity due to the sheer volume of nanodevices that will have to be integrated for complex functionality, and from the need to integrate these new nanotechnologies with silicon devices in the same system. The journal provides comprehensive coverage of innovative work in the specification, design analysis, simulation, verification, testing, and evaluation of computing systems constructed out of emerging technologies and advanced semiconductors. Also of interest are innovations in system design for green and sustainable computing, and computing-driven solutions to emerging areas in biotechnology. Topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Logic Primitive Design and Synthesis: how to design computational logic primitives from the new nanotechnologies, and design tools supporting their effective design and verification,
    • System-Level Specification, Design and Synthesis: how to interconnect these computational primitives to build complete information systems, and design tools for specifying, synthesizing, and verifying such systems,
    • Software-Level Specification, Design and Synthesis: how to develop the necessary software so that applications can be effectively mapped onto information systems implemented using these new nanotechnologies, and tools for generating and verifying the software, and
    • Mixed-Technology Systems: how to interface across potentially hybrid nanotechnologies that may co-exist in the same information system.
    Invites submissions of original technical papers describing research and development in emerging technologies in computing systems.
