Call for Workshop Proposals

Computing systems including hardware, software and networks are growing towards an ever increasing scale and heterogeneity, becoming overly complex. To cope with the growing complexity, Autonomic Computing (AC) focuses on self-manageable computing and communication systems that exhibit self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, self-protection and other self-x operations. Organic Computing (OC) additionally addresses adaptability, robustness, and controlled emergence as well as nature-inspired concepts for self-organization.

Trust and/or distrust relationships in the Internet and in pervasive infrastructures are key factors to enable dynamic interaction and cooperation of various users, systems and services. Trusted/Trustworthy Computing (TC) aims at making computing and communication systems as well as services available, predictable, traceable, controllable, assessable, sustainable, dependable, persist-able, security/privacy protect-able, etc.

The ATC 2009 workshops provide vibrant opportunities for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research experience, original research results and practical development experiences on specific new challenges and emerging issues in relation to either Autonomic/Organic Computing or Trusted/Trustworthy Computing.

The organizers of the workshop shall have full control and have responsible on the call for papers, forming program committee, review and selection of papers as well as planning the workshop program. The registration fee for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, proceedings and etc.

The proceedings of the ATC-09 workshops will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (Indexed by EI).

Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to ATC-09 Workshop Chair:

Each workshop should identify one organizer as the point of contact. A brief advertisement plan should be included in the proposal.
Important Dates

Workshop Proposal Due: 15 October 2008
Workshop Notification: 30 October 2008 (ongoing as received)
Paper Submission Deadline: 15 February 2009
Paper Status Notification: 25 March 2009
Camera-ready Due 10 April 2009

A workshop proposal should be submitted before October 15. A workshop proposal will be reviewed and the result will be notified case by case. Thus, interested organizers are encouraged to submit their ready proposals EARLY to avoid potential topic/theme conflict with approved workshops. (We should NOT hold all proposals and then notify at once around October 30).

Approved workshops should strictly follow the important dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates. The submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. But a workshop should have sufficient time, say 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 3 peer reviews.

We look forward to your stimulating proposals and contributions to ATC-09 workshops. Submit workshop proposals to workshops co-chairs via email (wsusilo@uow.edu.au and zbo@eas.uccs.edu) by 15 October 2008.

Best Regards,

Willy Susilo and Xiaobo Zhou
ATC-09 Workshop Co-Chairs
