FeBID 2011: The 6th Intl. Workshop on Feedback Control Implementation and
Design in Computing

Systems & Networks

June 14, 2011, Karlsruhe, Germany

Co-located with The 8th International Conference on Autonomic Computing 
(ICAC 2011) --


FeBID 2011 solicits original research papers on applying feedback control
theory to analyzing and

designing computing systems, networks, and service, such as those in data
centers, enterprise

systems, real-time systems, embedded systems, sensor networks, and
cyber-physical systems. The

workshop offers a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners to
discuss recent and

innovative results in the field. It is a forum to exchange ideas and
experiences on practical

control system design and implementation and to identify future directions
and challenges in

aligning feedback control techniques with traditional performance
analysis, modeling, and


FeBID seeks contributions on all aspects of system control. Topics of
interest include, but are

not limited, to the following:
* Control engineering, modeling and mathematical optimization applications
to server, embedded

and network systems, virtualized systems and cloud computing design and
* System control for resource management, power management, security,
performance, QoS,

dependability, and fault-tolerance purposes
* Operating system, middleware, and programming language supports
* System support and architecture for feedback control loops
* Design of systems for controllability: sensor, actuator and control
* Control models, methodologies, and paradigms for computing systems (e.g.
non-linear systems,

discrete event systems, optimal control)

FeBID also seeks:
* Quantified or insightful experience with existing systems
* Reproduction or refutation of previous results
* Negative results
* Problem statement
* Early ideas

FeBID explicitly encourages members of the systems community to explore
leading-edge topics and

ideas before they are presented at a major conference. Two formats of
contributions are welcome:

regular papers (6 pages), and position papers (2 pages).

All submissions should be formatted according to the standard ACM
proceedings guidelines. Please

see workshop website(http://controlofsystems.org/febid2011/) for
submission instructions.

There will be no copyright-transferred formal proceedings for the workshop
papers. Top selected

papers will be invited for a special issue of an archival journal (to be
