            CALL FOR ATC 2010 PAPERS


          The 7th International Conference on

      Autonomic and Trusted Computing (ATC 2010)

   - Bring Safe, Self-x and Organic Computing Systems into Reality -


         Technically Sponsored by IEEE CS TCSC

          Xi¡¯an, China, 26-29 October, 2010

   Co-located with UIC 2010 (http://www.nwpu.edu.cn/uic2010/)



1. The paper submisson site for ATC 2010 is now open. Please visit the web 
site: http://www.nwpu.edu.cn/atc2010/Submission/.

2. Five workshops have been accepted by ATC 2010. Workshop paper 
submission deadline is May 30, 2010. Please visit the web site: 


Computing systems including hardware, software, communication, and 
networks are growing towards an ever increasing scale and heterogeneity, 
becoming overly complex. Such complexity is getting even more critical 
with the ubiquitous permeation of embedded devices and other pervasive 
systems. To cope with the growing and ubiquitous complexity, Autonomic 
Computing (AC) focuses on self-manageable computing and communication 
systems that exhibit self-awareness, self-configuration, 
self-optimization, self-healing, self-protection and other self-x 
operations to the maximum extent possible without human intervention or 
guidance. Organic Computing (OC) additionally addresses adaptivity, 
robustness, and controlled emergence as well as nature-inspired concepts 
for self-organization.

Any autonomic or organic system must be trustworthy to avoid the risk of 
losing control and retain confidence that the system will not fail. Trust 
and/or distrust relationships in the Internet and in pervasive 
infrastructures are key factors to enable dynamic interaction and 
cooperation of various users, systems, and services. Trusted/Trustworthy 
Computing (TC) aims at making computing and communication systems as well 
as services available, predictable, traceable, controllable, assessable, 
sustainable, dependable, persistable, security/privacy protectable, etc.

A series of grand challenges exists to achieve practical autonomic or 
organic systems with truly trustworthy services. Started in 2005, the 
series of ATC conferences has been held at Nagasaki, Vienna, Three Gorges 
(China), Hong Kong, Oslo and Brisbane. ATC 2010 will include a highly 
selective program of technical papers, accompanied by workshops, panel 
discussions and keynote speeches. Established as a premier venue in the 
area of autonomic and trusted computing, ATC 2010 will offer a forum for 
researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in the most innovative 
research and development in these challenging areas and includes all 
technical aspects related to autonomic/organic computing (AC/OC) and 
trusted computing (TC). Topics include but are not limited to the 

- AC/OC Theory and Models:Models, negotiation, cooperation, 
competition,self-organization, emergence, verification etc.

- AC/OC Architectures and Systems:Autonomic elements & their relationship, 
frameworks,middleware, observer/controller architectures, etc.

- AC/OC Components and Modules:Multi-core CPU, memory, storage, database, 
device,server, proxy, software, OS, I/O, etc.

- AC/OC Communication and Services:Networks, self-organized net, web 
service, P2P, grid,EaaS, could, semantics, agent, transaction, etc.

- AC/OC Tools and Interfaces:Tools/interfaces for AC/OC system 
development,test, monitoring, assessment, supervision, etc.

- Trust Models and Specifications:Models and semantics of trust, distrust, 
mistrust,over-trust, cheat, risk, reputation, reliability, etc.

- Trust-related Security and Privacy:Trust-related secure architecture, 
framework, policy,intrusion detection/awareness, protocols, etc.

- Trusted Reliable and Dependable Systems: Fault-tolerant systems, 
hardware redundancy,robustness, survivable systems, failure recovery, etc.

- Trustworthy Services and Applications:Trustworthy 
Internet/web/P2P/grid/cloud services,secured mobile services, novel 
applications, etc.

- Trust Standards and Non-Technical Issues: Trust standards and issues 
related to personality,ethics, sociology, culture, psychology, economy,
