CALL FOR PAPERS
             (see also the associated calls for posters, tutorials,
                   and workshops, on the conference Web site)

                         2nd IEEE Conference on

                  Self-adaptive and Self-organizing Systems

                              (SASO 2008)

                    Venice, Italy, October 20-24, 2008


                           www.saso-conference.org


                    Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society,
          Technical Committee on Autonomous and Autonomic System


The aim of the SASO conference series is to provide a forum for laying
the foundations  of a new principled approach to engineering systems,
networks and services based on self-adaptation and self-organization.
To this end, the meeting aims to attract participants with different
backgrounds, to foster cross-pollination between different research
fields, and to expose and discuss innovative theories, frameworks,
methodologies, tools, and applications.

The complexity of current and emerging computing systems has led the
software engineering, distributed systems and management communities to
look for inspiration in diverse fields (e.g., complex systems,
artificial intelligence, sociology, and biology) to find new ways of
designing and managing networks, systems and services. In this endeavor,
self-organization and self-adaptation have emerged as two promising
interrelated facets of a paradigm shift. Self-adaptive systems work in a
top down manner. They evaluate their own global behavior and change it
when the evaluation indicates that they are not accomplishing what
they were intended to do, or when better functionality or performance is
possible. A challenge is often to identify how to change specific
behaviors to achieve the desired improvement. Self-organizing systems
work bottom up. They are composed of a large number of components that
interact locally according to typically simple rules. The global
behavior of the system emerges from these local interactions. Here, a
challenge is often to predict and control the resulting global behavior.

This year's edition is specifically focused at improving our
understanding of the properties inherent to self-adaptation and
self-organization, a necessary requirement for the effective engineering
and building of usable self-adaptive and self-organizing systems.
Contributions should present novel theoretical or experimental results,
or practical approaches and experiences in building or deploying
real-world systems, applications, tools, frameworks, etc. Contributions
contrasting different approaches for engineering a given family of
systems, or demonstrating the applicability of a certain approach for
different systems are particularly encouraged.



TOPICS


The topics of interest to SASO include, but are not limited to:

    Self-organization

    Self-adaptation

    Other self-* properties (self-management, self-monitoring,
             self-tuning, self-repair, self-configuration, etc.)

    Theories, frameworks and methods for self-* systems

    Management and control of self-* systems

    Robustness and dependability of self-* systems

    Approaches to engineering self-* systems

    Control of emergent properties in self-* systems

    Biologically, socially, and physically inspired self-* systems

    Applications and experiences with self-* systems



The systems and application areas of interest to SASO include, but are
not limited to:

    P2P Systems

    Mobile, pervasive, ad-hoc, and sensor network systems

    Autonomic computing and communication systems

    Robotics systems

    Multiagent systems

    Web and service systems





SUBMISSIONS INSTRUCTIONS


See the conference website (www.saso-conference.org) for detailed
information on how to submit papers.



All submissions should be 10 pages and formatted according to the
IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings style guide.



The proceedings will be printed and published by IEEE Computer Society
Press, and made available on the IEEE digital library.



A separated call for poster submissions will be launched during
Spring 2008.



REVIEW CRITERIA

Papers should present novel ideas in the topic domains listed above,
clearly motivated by problems from current practice or applied research.
We expect claims to be substantiated by formal analysis, experimental
evaluations, comparative studies, and so on. Authors are also encouraged
to submit application papers. Application papers are expected to provide
an indication of the real world relevance of the problem that is solved,
including a description of the deployment domain, and some form of
evaluation of performance, usability, or superiority to alternative
approaches. If the application is still early work in progress, then
the authors are expected to provide strong arguments as to why the
proposed approach will work in the chosen domain.
