The Ninth IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and 
Self-Organizing Systems
(SASO 2015)

MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts; 21-25 September 2015


Part of FAS* -- Foundation and Applications of Self-* Computing Conferences
Co-located with:
The International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (CAC 2015)
The 15th IEEE Peer-to-Peer Computing Conference (P2P 2015)



The 2015 edition of the SASO conference series will be held in 
Cambridge, Massachusetts, and hosted by MIT in the week of September 21 
to September 25, 2015.

The aim of the Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing systems conference 
series (SASO) is to provide a forum for the foundations of a principled 
approach to engineering systems, networks and services based on 
self-adaptation and self-organization. The ninth edition of the SASO 
conference embraces the inter-disciplinarity and the scientific, 
empirical and application dimensions of self-* systems; it thus aims to 
attract participants with different backgrounds, to foster 
cross-pollination between research fields, and to expose and discuss 
innovative theories, design principles, frameworks, methodologies, 
tools, and applications.




The Early Registration deadline is September 4, 2015.
Deadline for reduced hotel rates is August 21, 2015.

Registration is available at:

A single registration fee includes access to the main conference, 
workshops, and the doctoral symposium. Moreover, it includes a 
conference kit
with  electronic proceedings, all coffee breaks, lunches, free entrance 
to the
Welcome Reception and Conference Dinner.
