CF Tutorial Proposals: Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems (SASO-2007)


                 First International Conference on
        Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems (SASO-2007)
                Boston, Mass., USA, July 9-11, 2007

                Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society,
          Task Force on Autonomous and Autonomic Systems
                        (approval pending)
                 in cooperation with ACM SIGOPS
                        (approval pending)


The SASO-2007 Organizing Committee invites proposals for tutorials to be
held in association with the conference. SASO is a new conference which
aims to bring together, hitherto, diverse communities working within
Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems to build a new academic
community. The tutorial program has been initiated to support this aim.

Tutorials should address one or more of the following objectives:

o  Introduce a major topic area of SASO research.
o  Survey a significant application / technology area of SASO.
o  Explain an area of SASO research relevant to industry.
o  Overview a particular approach or methodology for SASO work.
o  Highlight emerging SASO topics and techniques.
o  Explain SASO ideas originating from one community but
   applicable to others.

For a guide on what topic areas, technologies and communities fall
within the SASO focus refer to the Call For Papers available on the
conference website.

It is not expected that tutorials will cover specific topics or
techniques that are already covered in existing textbooks. For
example, a tutorial on "genetic algorithms" or "neural networks" would
not be accepted. However, tutorials that coherently show how existing
techniques have been applied in novel ways to solve engineering problems
would be acceptable. Novel and timely areas, approaches and paradigms
are particularly encouraged. Proposals that promote only a single
author's work or a specific commercial product are not encouraged.


Tutorial proposals, maximum 3 pages, should contain:

o  Title - descriptive title of the tutorial. Max. 1 line.
o  Length - specify half-day (approx. 4 hrs) or full-day (approx. 8 hrs)
o  Description - a brief, one paragraph, description of the tutorial
   suitable for publication on the SASO website and other publicity
   material. Max. half-page.
o  A statement of why the tutorial is relevant / interesting for
   the potential conference audience. Max. half-page.
o  An outline syllabus of the topics / material to be covered in the
   tutorial - list a maximum of eight specific subtopic headings. For
   each heading list relevant keywords and, where necessary, references
   to representative published work that will be covered within that
   topic. Max one page.
o  Short resume of the presenter(s) including name, e-mail, home web-
   page URL, postal address, tel. and fax number and brief description
   of background in the tutorial area including evidence of teaching
   experience (previous courses / tutorials taught) and scholarship in
   the area (2 or 3 selected references to representative publications).
   If more than one presenter is listed indicate which should be the
   corresponding contact. Max. half-page.

Proposals should be sent by e-mail (in plain text) to the
Tutorial Chair by February 28, 2007:

David Hales (hales at
Dept. of Computer Science
University of Bologna


Tutorial submissions will be evaluated by the SASO Tutorial Chair in
association with the General Co-Chairs. During the evaluation process
the prospective speakers may be contacted to provide clarification or
further information. Those submitting rejected proposals will be given
reasons and feedback.

For all accepted proposals SASO will provide:

o  Meeting place, publicity, logistics and registration for the tutorial
o  Duplication and distribution of tutorial notes to participants

Tutorial organizers provide:

o  A PDF file of their tutorial notes by the due date
o  Presentation of their tutorial at SASO 2007


Proposal Submission Deadline: February 28, 2007
Acceptance Notifications: March 31, 2007
Deadline for submitting tutorial notes: April 30, 2007
Tutorial Presentations: July 8-12, 2007
