[Condor-users] CFP: The 9th Int. Conf. on Autonomic Computing (ICAC) 2012 -- deadline extension to March 16th, 2012


The 9th International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC 2012)

September 17-21, 2012. San Jose, CA, USA


Paper and Poster Submission: March 16, 2012, 11:59pm PST (EXTENDED)
Notification: May 18, 2012
Camera-ready Due: June 8, 2012

ICAC is the leading conference on autonomic computing techniques,
foundations, and applications. Autonomic computing refers to
methods and means for automated management of performance, fault,
security, and configuration with little involvement of users or
administrators. Systems introducing new autonomic features are
becoming increasingly prevalent, motivating research that spans
a variety of areas, from computer systems, networking, software
engineering, and data management to machine learning, control
theory, and bio-inspired computing. ICAC brings together
researchers and practitioners across these disciplines to
address multiple facets of adaptation and self-management in
computing systems and applications from different perspectives.
Autonomic computing solutions are sought for clouds, grids,
data centers, enterprise software, internet services, data
services, smart phones, embedded systems, and sensor networks.
In these environments, resources and applications must be managed
to maximize performance and minimize cost, while maintaining
predictable and reliable behavior in the face of varying
workloads, failures, and malicious threats. Papers are solicited
from all areas of autonomic computing, including (but not limited

* End-to-end techniques for management of resources, workloads,
  performance, faults, power/cooling, security, and others.

* Self-managing components, such as server, storage, network
  protocols, or specific application elements, and embedded and
  mobile end systems such as smart phones.

* Decision and analysis techniques and their use, such as machine
  learning, control theory, predictive methods, probability and
  stochastic processes, queuing theory methodologies, emergent
  behavior, rule-based systems, and bio-inspired techniques.

* Monitoring systems for autonomic computing.

* Hypervisor, operating systems, hardware, or application support
  for autonomic computing.

* Novel human interfaces for monitoring and controlling autonomic

* Management topics, such as specification and modeling of
  service-level agreements, behavior enforcement and tie-in with
  IT governance.

* Toolkits, frameworks, principles and architectures, from
  software engineering practices and experimental methodologies
  to agent-based techniques and virtualization.

* Fundamental science and theory of self-managing systems:
  understanding, controlling or exploiting system behaviors to
  enforce autonomic properties.

* Applications of autonomic computing and experiences with
  prototyped or deployed systems solving real-world problems in
  science, engineering, business and society.

Papers will be judged on originality, significance, interest,
correctness, clarity and relevance to the broader community.
Papers should report on experiences, measurements, user studies,
or other evaluations, as appropriate. Evaluations of a prototype
or large-scale deployment of systems and applications is expected.

Full papers (a maximum of 10 pages in the two-column ACM proceedings
format) and posters (2 pages) are invited on a wide variety of
topics relating to autonomic computing. Submitted papers must be
original work, and may not be under consideration for another
conference or journal. Complete formatting and submission
instructions can be found on the conference web site. Accepted
papers and posters will appear in proceedings distributed at the
conference and available electronically. Relevant top ICAC'12
papers will be invited for "fast-track" submissions to the
ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems (TAAS).

One of ICAC's important roles is to bring together researchers
and practitioners from academia and industry. In its industry
session, ICAC helps fulfill this role by presenting an industry
viewpoint on technologies, products, and market needs. The
industry session also addresses current challenges, and
opportunities for academic and corporate research collaborations.
We encourage industry leaders, including entrepreneurs, product
developers, architects, managers, marketers and end users,
to submit their papers and posters reflecting such industry
perspectives as part of the regular submission process.
