Large-scale computer systems, from IT infrastructures and Grids to enterprise

datacenters and Internet services, present common challenges in managing 

resources and applications to maximize performance and power efficiency while 

maintaining predictable and reliable behavior in the face of varying 

workloads and failures. A system that addresses these challenges by 

integrating monitoring, decision-processing and actuation is an Autonomic 

Computing System. Research in autonomic computing spans a variety of 

areas, from computer systems, architecture, databases and networks to

machine learning and control theory. The purpose of ICAC is to bring 

together researchers and practitioners across these disciplines to address 

the multiple facets of self-management in computing systems and applications.


Papers are solicited from all areas of autonomic computing, including:

* End-to-end techniques for autonomic management of resources, workloads,

faults, power/thermal, and other challenges.

* Self-managing components, such as server, storage, network, data center or

specific application elements.

* Decision and analysis techniques, such as machine learning, control theory,

predictive methods, emergent behavior, selforganizing networks and rule-based 


* Monitoring systems for autonomic computing.

* Virtual machine, operating systems, hardware techniques or application

frameworks in autonomic computing.

* Novel human interfaces for monitoring and controlling autonomic systems.

* 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 selfmanaging systems: understanding,

controlling or exploiting system behaviors to enforce autonomic properties

* Experience with existing systems

* Applications of autonomics to real 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 autonomic systems and applications is 




Full papers (a maximum of 10 pages in length) 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. Authors of accepted 

papers and posters are expected to present their work at the conference.



ICAC-10 welcomes proposals for co-located workshops on topics of interest to the

autonomic computing community. Workshops are expected to publish proceedings, and

should cover areas that complement the main program. ICAC-10 will also feature a

demonstration and exhibition session consisting of prototypes and technology

artifacts such as demonstrating autonomic software or autonomic computing principles.

Entries will be judged by a separate committee led by the demo/exhibit chair.



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.



A student best paper award will be presented, consisting of a commemorative 

plaque, complimentary 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 author and presenter is a student.
