In order to promote the development of information technology and strengthen academic exchanges, the Technical Committee of Computer Architecture of China Computer Federation decided to convene the annual conference of ACA (Advanced Computer Architecture) in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China on August 23 to 24, 2014. The conference will be sponsored by CCF, and organized by the professional committee of architecture of CCF and Northeastern University.

The conference will invite well-known experts in this field to make keynote speeches, from which you could get the latest domestic and foreign news of the architecture field. It will also provide a platform for experts to communicate and publishing the cutting-edge research work. We welcome all the experts doing related research to be engaged in the conference.

We are making two notable innovations in this year’s ACA conference:

1. ACA-2014 will assign a shepherd to each accepted paper, to provide guidance on revision and make sure reviewer’s comments are appropriately incorporated.

2. ACA 2014 accepts submissions both in English and Chinese, to increase the international visibility and impact of accepted papers. All accepted English and Chinese submissions will be published in an issue of Springer CCIS ( and an issue of <<Journal of Northeastern University>> (Supplement), accordingly. English papers have been scheduled on Springer’s forthcoming proceedings (
