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 simulation.
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 implementation
* 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 algorithms
* 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(
) 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 determined).
Important Dates:
Submission deadline: February 21st, 2011
Notification of acceptance: March 14th, 2011
Final paper due: April 15th, 2011
