ICAC is the leading conference on autonomic computing techniques,
foundations, and applications. Large-scale systems of all types, such as
data centers, compute clouds, sensor networks, embedded or pervasive
environments, and the Internet of Things are becoming increasingly complex
and burdensome for people to manage. Autonomic computing systems reduce
this burden by managing their own behavior in accordance with high-level
goals. In autonomic systems, resources and applications are managed to
maximize performance and minimize cost, while maintaining predictable and
reliable behavior in the face of varying workloads, failures, and malicious
threats. Achieving self-management requires and motivates research that
spans a wide variety of scientific and engineering disciplines, including
distributed systems, artificial intelligence, machine learning, modeling,
control theory, optimization, planning, decision theory, user interface
design, data management, software engineering, emergent behavior, and
bio-inspired computing. ICAC brings together researchers and practitioners
from disparate disciplines, application domains, and perspectives, enabling
them to discover and share underlying commonalities in their approaches to
making resources, applications, and systems more autonomic.

Papers are solicited from all areas of autonomic computing, including (but
not limited to):
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, such as machine learning, control theory,
operations research, probability and stochastic processes, queuing theory,
rule-based systems, and bio-inspired techniques, and their use in autonomic
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
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
Applications of autonomic computing and experiences with prototyped or
deployed systems solving real-world problems in science, engineering,
business, or society

Papers will be judged on originality, significance, interest, correctness,
clarity and relevance to the broader community. Papers are strongly
encouraged to report on experiences, measurements, user studies, and
provide an appropriate quantitative evaluation if at all possible.

Paper Submissions
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 should be typeset in two-column format in 10 point type on 12
point (single-spaced) leading, with the text block being no more than 6.5"
wide by 9" deep. Both kinds of papers should be submitted via the Web
submission form, which will be available here soon. Complete formatting and
submission instructions can be found here. Authors are also encouraged to
submit a poster or demo that summarizes or augments their paper (see below).

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of
previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud.
USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals,
prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have
committed them. See the USENIX Conference Submissions Policy for details.
Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered.
If you are uncertain whether your submission meets USENIX's guidelines,
please contact the program co-chairs, icac13chairs at usenix.org, or the
USENIX office, submissionspolicy at usenix.org.

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
production at usenix.org. The papers will be available online to everyone
beginning on June 26, 2013. Accepted submissions will be treated as
confidential prior to publication on the USENIX ICAC '13 Web site; rejected
submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.
Special Tracks

To facilitate community collaboration and exchange of ideas in emergent
technological areas, ICAC’13 will host two special tracks, each of which
will be reviewed by its own subcommittee. Dr. Levent Gürgen will lead a
special track on self-aware Internet of Things and Dr. Karsten Schwan will
lead a special track on management of Big Data systems.
Posters, Demonstrations, and Exhibitions

ICAC '13 will also feature a poster, demonstration, and exhibition session
consisting of research prototypes and technology artifacts that demonstrate
autonomic software or autonomic computing principles. Please check back
here for formatting and submission instructions, plus the Web submission
form specific to this session, which will be available here 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 ICAC '13 conference. Please check back here for submission instructions.
