ACM-ICAC is the foremost conference on all aspects of autonomic computing. With the ever-increasing complexity of large-scale computer systems and our reliance on mobile devices, manual management of these systems is over-taxed and inefficient, resulting in a compromised ability for further growth. Autonomic computing is the answer to these issues and the future of computing.

The same way the human body’s nervous system regulates systems of the body without conscious input from the human, autonomic computing controls computer applications and systems without the need for continuous human input. An autonomic computing system’s ability to make decisions and manage its own behavior based upon changes in the environment lessens the burden of managing complex large-scale systems of all types. The framework of autonomic computing enables more cost-effective management while maximizing performance despite varying demands on the system and malicious threats.

Special Tracks

The 2013 ACM-ICAC introduces four special tracks: Autonomic Cloud Computing; Autonomics for Extreme Scales; Autonomic Cybersecurity; and Autonomic Computing Foundations. Program vice-chairs in each of these research areas will coordinate the efforts regarding papers focused in these tracks.

●       Autonomic Cloud Computing: Vice Chair Rosa Badia

●       Autonomics for Extreme Scales: Vice Chair Howard Ho

●       Autonomic Cybersecurity: Vice Chair Sherif Abdelwahed

●       Autonomic Computing Foundations: Vice Chair Omer Rana


Papers are solicited from all areas of autonomic computing, including, but not limited to, the following:

●       Self-managing components, such as compute, storage, and networking devices; embedded and real-time systems; and mobile devices such as smart phones

●       AI and mathematical techniques in autonomic computing, such as machine learning, control theory, operations research, probability and stochastic processes, queuing theory, rule-based systems, and bio-inspired techniques

●       End-to-end design and implementations for management of resources, workloads, availability, performance, reliability, power/cooling, security, and others

●       Monitoring systems that can scale to large environments

●       Hypervisors, operating systems, middleware, or application support for autonomic computing

●       Novel human interfaces for monitoring and controlling autonomic systems

●       Goal specification and policies, including specification and modeling of service-level agreements, behavior enforcement, IT governance, and business-driven IT management

●       Frameworks, principles, architectures, and toolkits, from software engineering practices and experimental methodologies to agent-based techniques

●       Automated management techniques for emerging applications, systems, and platforms, including social networks, Big Data systems, multi-core processors, and Internet of Things

●       Fundamental science and theory of self-managing systems for understanding, controlling, or exploiting emergent system behaviors to enforce autonomic properties

●       Applications of autonomic computing and experiences with prototyped or deployed systems solving real-world problems in science, engineering, business, or society

Papers with focus in Autonomic Cloud Computing,  Autonomics for Extreme Scales, Autonomic Cybersecurity, and Autonomic Computing Foundations are strongly encouraged.

Paper Submission

Papers will be judged on originality, significance, interest, correctness, clarity, and relevance to the broader community. Papers are strongly encouraged to report experiences, measurements, and user studies, and to provide an appropriate quantitative evaluation. Previously published papers and/or papers under review are unacceptable.

Full papers (a maximum of 10 pages) and short papers (4 pages) are invited on a wide variety of topics relating to autonomic computing. Both full and short papers must follow the official ACM proceedings format with strict adherence to SIGS style (i.e., Option 1). Both kinds of papers should be submitted via the Web submission form, which soon will be available at the conference web site.

Authors are also encouraged to submit a poster or demo that summarizes and highlights the main points of their paper (see below). Extended versions of the best papers will be considered for a special section of TAAS and a special issue in Cluster Computing Journal.

Plagiarism Policy

Respecting intellectual property rights is a foundational principle of the ACM's Codes of Ethics. Plagiarism, in which one misrepresents ideas, words, computer codes, or other creative expression as one's own, is a clear violation of such ethical principles. Plagiarism can also represent a punishable violation of copyright law. Plagiarism manifests itself in a variety of forms, including verbatim copying, near-verbatim copying, or purposely paraphrasing portions of another author's work without citing the source. Proper citing; i.e., accurate use of quotations marks and differentiating copied text from original, is imperative. Copying elements, such as equations or illustrations that are not common knowledge, is also plagiarism. For more information, please visit ACM Plagiarism Policy.

Acceptance Policy

At least one author of an accepted paper is expected to present the paper in person at the conference. The accepted papers will be available online to registered attendees before the conference and will also appear in proceedings distributed via USB drives at the conference. If your accepted paper should not be published prior to the event, please notify the conference organizers. The papers will be available online to everyone beginning on June 10, 2013. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the conference Web site; rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

Posters, Demonstrations, and Exhibitions

A poster, demonstration, and exhibition session consisting of research prototypes and technology artifacts that demonstrate autonomic software or autonomic computing principles will be included in the conference. More information will be available soon.

PhD Thesis Digest Forum

Current PhD students who are working on topics relevant to autonomic computing are invited to submit a short summary (up to 2 pages) of their theses. Top selected submissions will be presented at a PhD forum during the conference. More information will be available soon.
