論文募集: USENIX ICAC '14 (2月26日概 要締切)


日本データベース学会の皆様
(重複してお受け取りの際はご容赦ください)

富士通研の金政です。

私がプログラム委員を務めておりますICAC'14国際会議の概要締切が
2週間後、論文締切が3週間後に迫っています。

この会議はオートノミック・コンピューティングをリードする会議で、
プログラム委員にIBMのJeff Kephartが名を連ねるなど、本分野の研
究を発表するには申し分のない場だと思われます。また、USENIXの
Federated Conferences Weekの中でAnnual Technical Conferenceや
HotStorageなどとの共催ですので、発表ついでに研究動向調査をする
にも打って付けです。

昨年のICACの査読では、ほとんど全ての論文が4人以上の査読者に
よって査読され、5~6人の査読者が付く論文も多くありました。産
学両面の研究者がバランスよく混ざっているのと相まって、幅広い研
究者からのフィードバックが期待できると思います。

会議のトピックは、広い意味での「自動化・自律化」全般となります
ので、皆様の研究にも該当するものが多々あることかと思われます。
御投稿を検討いただけましたら幸いです。

CALL FOR PAPERS

11th International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC '14)
June 18-20, 2014
Philadelphia, PA, USA
Part of USENIX Federated Conferences Week, June 17-20, 2014

http://www.usenix.org/conference/icac14


ICAC is the leading conference on autonomic computing techniques,
foundations, and applications. Large-scale systems of all types, such as
data centers, compute clouds, smart cities, cyber-physical systems, sensor
networks, and embedded or pervasive environments, 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 analysis,
and bio-inspired computing. ICAC brings together researchers
and practitioners from disparate disciplines, application domains and
perspectives, enabling them to discover and share underlying com-
monalities in their approaches to making resources, applications and
systems more autonomic.


IMPORTANT DATES

* Paper registrations (titles and abstracts) due: February 26, 2014,
  11:59 p.m. EST (hard deadline, no extensions)
* Paper submissions due: March 5, 2014, 11:59 p.m. EST (hard deadline,
  no extensions)
* Notification to authors: April 9, 2014
* Final paper files due: May 20, 2014


TOPICS

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 smartphones.
* AI and mathematical techniques, such as machine learning, control
  theory, operations research, probability and stochastic processes,
  queueing theory, rule-based systems, and bio-inspired techniques,
  and their use in autonomic computing.
* End-to-end design and implementation of systems for management of
  resources, workloads, scalability, availability, performance,
  reliability, power/cooling, and security.
* Monitoring components and platforms for autonomic systems in IT
  or cyber-physical 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 techniques.
* Automated management techniques for emerging applications, systems,
  and platforms, including social networks, cloud computing, big
  data systems, multi-core servers, smart cities, and cyber-physical
  systems.
* Fundamental science and theory of self-managing systems for
  understanding, controlling or exploiting emergent system behaviors
  to enforce autonomic properties.
* 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.
