ATC07 Call for paper


******************* ATC-07 Call For Papers**********************

        The 4th International Conference on Autonomic
                and Trusted Computing (ATC-07)

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

         http://www.atc-conference.org/2007/
         http://ehpclab.stfx.ca/~atc07/

    Organized by Hong Kong Polytechnic University, China
    In Cooperation with the IEEE Computer Society

       Hong Kong, China, July 11-13, 2007

******************************************************

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 emphasizes natural-analogue concepts like
self-organization and controlled emergence.

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, persist-able, security/privacy
protect-able, etc.

A series of grand challenges exist to achieve practical self-manageable
autonomic systems with truly trustworthy services. ATC-07 addresses 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). ATC-07 is a successor of the First
Int'l Workshop on Trusted and Autonomic Ubiquitous and Embedded Systems
(TAUES-05, Japan, Dec.), the Int'l Workshop on Trusted and Autonomic
Computing Systems (TACS-06, Austria, Apr.), and the 3rd International
Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing (ATC-06, Three Gorges,
China, Sep.).

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

-AC/OC Theory and Models
*  Nervous/organic models, negotiation, cooperation,
   competition, self-organization, emergence, etc.

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

-AC/OC Components and Modules
*  Memory, storage, database, device, server, proxy,
   software, OS, I/O, etc.

-AC/OC Communication and Services
*  Networks, self-organized net, web service, grid,
   P2P, 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/grid/P2P e-services, mobile/
   pervasive services, novel applications, etc.

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