Extended Deadline for MAASC 2011: the 10th of February 2011


1st Workshop on Middleware and Architectures for Autonomic and
Sustainable Computing (MAASC)

the 12th of May, 2011 - Paris, France

Co-located with 11th NOTERE 2011 conference -

>>>>>>  EXTENDED Submission deadline: the 10th of February 2011<<<<<<<<<<<<<


Autonomic Management is becoming an increasingly important success
factor in handling the growing complexity of modern computer systems,
which must face increasingly conflicting demands in terms of
scalability, energy usage and cost of ownership. Solutions that
provide Autonomic Management capabilities remain, however, difficult
to design, develop and maintain. This difficulty has been further
compounded in recent years by the need to include sustainability - the
ability of computer systems to control and limit their environmental
impact and in particular minimise their energy consumption - as a
first-class design goal of modern large-scale computer systems.

The MAASC workshop aims at gathering participants from both the
academia and the industry for discussing recent and innovative
propositions in this domain. The workshop welcomes contributions that
apply to a large range of IT domains, spanning from pervasive systems
to grid, clustered and cloud computing systems.


We welcome contributions proposing reusable *architectures*,
*frameworks*, *middleware*, *design patterns*, *services*,
*components*, *tools* and *methodologies* that facilitate the
development, integration and maintenance of Autonomic Management and
Sustainable IT systems.

In this context, relevant topics include but are not limited to:

- Multi-objective autonomic management, in particular in sustainable
- Context-aware autonomic management
- Complex, adaptable management logic
- Management of conflicting administrative goals
- Autonomic management of large-scale, distributed and dynamic
- Learning of autonomic management behaviours and configurations
- User behaviour considerations in autonomic management
- Integration of autonomic management services
- Dynamic service or component integration
- Decentralised control for autonomic systems
- Nature-inspired autonomic management
- Application of autonomic computing principles to sustainability and
   green computing
- Sustainability and environmental implications of autonomic computing

Submission of Papers:

We encourage original submissions (maximum of 6 pages) with innovative
research contributions or experimental results.

Submitted papers should be written in English according to the ACM
double column format
(http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates). We are
planning to include accepted papers to the workshop into the ACM
Digital Library (TBC).

Authors must upload their paper as PDF file using the workshop's
submission system (Easy Chair)

Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, technical
soundness, description clarity and relevance to MAASC workshop.

At least one author of each accepted submission is expected to attend
the workshop.
