Nowadays, various kinds of novel computing concepts are increasingly emerging for enhancing our real and virtual worlds towards smart worlds as well as cyber-physical-social-thinking integrated hyper worlds. Accordingly, computing systems are growing in capability and complexity including hardware, software, communications, networks, platforms, services, etc. Advanced computing (AC) aims to discover, develop, and deploy computational and networking capabilities, and to design and develop novel computing systems and architectures.
At the same time, computing must be trustworthy to engender confidence that systems will remain secure and available. Trust/distrust relationships in the Internet, Web applications and pervasive infrastructures are key factors to enable dynamic interaction and cooperation of various users, systems, and services. Trusted computing (TC) aims at making computing and communication systems and services available, predictable, accountable, controllable, assessable, sustainable, dependable, persistent, and secure.
ATC conferences have taken a leading role in addressing these challenges and achieving practical advanced computing systems with truly trustworthy services. Started in 2005, the series of ATC conferences have been held at Nagasaki (Japan), Vienna (Austria), Three Gorges (China), Hong Kong (China), Oslo (Norway), Brisbane (Australia), Xi’An (China), Banff (Canada), Fukuoka (Japan), Vietri sul Mare (Italy), Bali (Indonesia), Beijing (China) and Toulouse (France). ATC 2017 will include a highly selective program of technical papers, accompanied by workshops, panel discussions, and keynote speeches. Established as a premier venue in the area of advanced and trusted computing, ATC 2017 will offer a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in the most innovative research and development related to Advanced Computing (AC) and Trusted Computing (TC).
