The 9th International Conference on Autonomic Computing invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference in San Jose, CA, Sep 17-21, 2012.


Workshops offer an excellent platform for meeting people, and for exploring and discussing emerging topics in the field of autonomic computing. Although workshop organizers are free to determine the format of their workshop, we ask that a workshop aims to foster discussion and encourage collaborations among participants, rather than having only formal presentation and short Q&A sessions.

Workshop proposals should include the following information (with a maximum length of 5 pages):

* The title and a description of the workshop, including a clear description of the topic, a motivation why the topic is of interest for the domain of autonomic computing, and the goal of the workshop. This should serve as a basis for the call for papers/participation.
* A draft schedule of the workshop, with a duration of either a half day or a full day. The schedule should highlight the interactive nature of the proposed workshop.
* A tentative workshop programme committee, presenters or keynote speakers.
* The complete contact information of the workshop organizers, incl. a brief biography and an overview of previous experiences with organizing workshops.
* An indication of the expected number of papers/attendees attracted for the workshop.
* A description of past versions of the event, including dates, organizers, submission and acceptance counts, attendance, sites, registration fees and summary budget information, if available/applicable.
* A description of the plans for publicity.
* The URL of the workshop web site, if available.
* Organization

The workshop organizers are responsible for:

* Setting up a website for the workshop
* Advertising the workshop and solicit submissions
* Handling the paper submission and reviewing process and collect the camera-ready copies
* Coordinating the workshop sessions and stimulate discussion
* Publication

The proceedings will be included in the ICAC proceedings (memory stick only). Pending ACM approval, this would be published by ACM. 


Workshop organizers should submit their proposals (in a single pdf file) directly to the workshop chair, Fred Douglis (f.douglis at computer.org). Please put "ICAC Workshop proposal" in the subject line.

The workshop chair will select workshops based on the scientific/technical interest of the topics, the clarity of the proposal in addressing the requested information, the innovativeness of workshop topics, and the capacity of the conference workshop program. 

Important Dates

* Deadline for workshop proposals: February 10, 2012
* Notification of acceptance: March 2, 2012
* Workshops: September 17 and Septermber 21
