deal with the increasing complexity of large-scale computer and software
systems, they must manage themselves, in accordance with high-level guidance
from humans – a vision that has been referred to as autonomic
computing. Meeting the grand challenges of autonomic computing
requires scientific and technological advances in a wide variety of fields,
as well as new software and system architectures that support the effective
integration of the constituent technologies.
The purpose of the 2nd International Conference on Autonomic Computing is to
bring together researchers from different fields of research who are
addressing aspects of self-management in computing systems. In doing so, we
hope to develop and nurture a community that can work together to realize
the vision of large-scale self-managing systems. Papers are solicited on a
broad array of topics of relevance to autonomic computing; particularly
those that bear on connections and relationships among different areas of
research or report on prototype systems or experiences. Topics of interest
include, but are not limited to:
Autonomic computing systems
or prototype systems that exhibit
self-monitoring, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, and/or
for self-managing systems, based on Open
Grid Services, Web Services, or novel paradigms based on biological,
economic, social, or other analogies.
components, such as server, client,
database, storage, or network elements. Emphasis should be placed on
interactions with other components, or techniques or lessons that may
generalize to other components.
models, languages, runtime and compiler technologies
for building self-managing components, systems or applications.
New technologies supporting
system management, such as
service-level agreements, negotiation or conversation support, and behavior
middleware or services that entail
interactions among two or more components of self-managing systems, such as
health monitoring, dependency analysis, problem localization or remediation,
workload management, and provisioning.
Interfaces to autonomic
systems, including user interfaces,
interfaces for monitoring and controlling behavior, and techniques for
defining, distributing, and understanding policies.
Fundamental science of
understanding, controlling, or exploiting emergent behavior, theoretical
investigations of coupled feedback loops, predictive methods, robustness,
and related topics.
Experiences with autonomic
system or component prototypes: measurements, evaluations, or analyses of system behavior, user studies, or
experiences with large-scale deployments of self-managing systems or
Accepted papers and posters will
appear in proceedings published by IEEE Computer Society Press, which will
be distributed at the conference.
best paper award will be presented. The award will consist of a plaque,
complementary student registration to the conference and an honorarium that
will partially cover travel and hotel costs. A student paper is
defined as one in which the principal (not sole) author is a student. The
student will be required attend the conference to present the paper and
receive the award. Limited Student Travel Awards
are also available. Details available
DEMO & EXHIBIT SESSION
ICAC 2005 will feature
a demo and exhibit session consisting of posters
and technology artifacts (e.g., machines running autonomic software or
demonstrations of autonomic computing principles). Entries will be solicited
via a separate call for demonstrations and exhibits and entries will be
judged by a
separate subcommittee, headed by the exhibit chair. Please see the
conference web site for more information.
will feature tutorials on topics related to autonomic computing. Proposals
for half-day (three hours) and full day tutorials are solicited. Entries
will be judged by a separate subcommittee, headed by the tutorial chair.
Please see the conference web site for more information.
will feature workshops on topics related to autonomic computing. The
objectives of the workshops are to promote the presentation of ongoing work
in the area of autonomic computing, provide a less formal forum for
discussion of ideas and extend the scope of the main conference.
Proposals for half-day and full day workshops are solicited. Entries will be
judged by a separate subcommittee, headed by the workshop chair. Please see
the conference web site for more information.
