CALL FOR POSTERS: 8th Conference on Autonomic Computing, 14-18 June 2011, Germany

8th International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC 2011) Karlsruhe, Germany

ICAC is the leading conference on autonomic computing applications, technology and foundations. Autonomic computing refers to methods and means for reducing the human burden of managing computing systems.
Systems introducing new autonomic features are becoming increasingly prevalent, motivating research that spans a variety of areas, from computer systems, architecture, databases and networks to machine learning, control theory, and bio-inspired computing.

Posters are an excellent opportunity for presenting innovative research ideas, projects and results. Accepted papers for posters (2 page) will be published in proceedings by ACM, which will be distributed at the conference. Posters will be displayed at the conference.

Posters are invited on a wide variety of topics relating to autonomic

** Applications of autonomic computing ** Contributions and experiences are sought with prototyped or deployed systems and applications that focus on advancing system independence and increasing system ability to adapt to an unpredictable environment.

** Autonomic computing components and services ** Descriptions of protocols, system-level support, services, or application components that enhance aspects of system autonomy, self-management, self-tuning, self-configuration, self-diagnosis, and self-healing, or improve adaptive capabilities.

** Algorithms, theory and foundations of autonomic computing ** Analytic foundations for building efficient autonomic systems, predicting their behavior, quantifying their performance, analyzing their stability, guaranteeing their specifications, or optimizing their efficacy

Poster manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on merits including correctness, originality, technical strength, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference themes. Submitted posters must include original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal.
They should also not be under review to another forum during the ICAC review process. Authors of accepted posters are expected to present their poster at the conference.

Detailed submission instructions will be published at the ICAC 2011 web site (http://www.cis.fiu.edu/conferences/icac2011/).
