Call for Papers


Workshop on Autonomic Computing


Submission Deadline: February 28, 2006


As computer systems are becoming more complex, interconnected, and diverse, their management will soon be beyond the capabilities of even the most skilled system managers. Autonomic computing is emerging as viable approach to bring a new level of self-management to these systems through self-healing, self-optimizing, self-configuring and self-protection functionalities. The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to address different aspects of autonomic computing. Papers are solicited on topics, which include, but not limited to:



Submission Instructions:

Papers reporting original and unpublished research results on above and related autonomic computing and HPC topics are solicited. Please submit an electronic copy of your full manuscript (not to exceed 15 double-spaced pages or 8 double-column single-space IEEE formatted pages, including figures, tables, and references). Please clearly indicate the corresponding author. Include up to 6 keywords from the above list and an abstract of no more than 300 words. Papers should be submitted - in .pdf (preferred), PostScript, or word .doc format via email to If you have any questions about the workshop or paper submission to it, please contact Baback Izadi.
