CALL FOR PAPERS
10th IEEE International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing
Sorrento Peninsula, Italy - December 18-21, 2013
hosted by Second University of Naples - SUN
Computing systems including hardware, software, communication, and networks
are growing towards an ever-increasing scale and heterogeneity, becoming
overly complex. Such complexity is getting even more critical with the
ubiquitous permeation of embedded devices and other pervasive systems. To cope
with the growing and ubiquitous complexity, Autonomic Computing (AC) focuses
on self-manageable computing and communication systems that exhibit
self-awareness, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing,
self-protection and other self-x operations to the maximum extent possible
without human intervention or guidance. Organic Computing (OC) additionally
addresses adaptivity, robustness, and controlled emergence as well as
nature-inspired concepts for self-organization.
Any autonomic or organic system must be trustworthy to avoid the risk of
losing control and retain confidence that the system will not fail. 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,
persistent, security/privacy protectable, etc.
A series of grand challenges exists to achieve practical autonomic or organic
systems with truly trustworthy services. Started in 2005, the series of ATC
conferences has been held at Nagasaki, Vienna, Three Gorges (China), Hong
Kong, Oslo, Brisbane, Xian, Banff, and Fukuoka. ATC 2013 will include a highly
selective program of technical papers, accompanied by workshops, panel
discussions and keynote speeches. Established as a premier venue in the area
of autonomic and trusted computing, ATC 2013 will offer a forum for
researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in the most innovative research
and development in these challenging areas and includes all technical aspects
related to autonomic/organic computing (AC/OC) and trusted computing (TC).
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
1- AC/OC Theory and Models
Models, negotiation, cooperation, competition, self-organization,
emergence, verification, etc.
2- AC/OC Architectures and Systems
Autonomic elements & their relationship, frameworks, middleware,
observer/controller architectures, institutional architectures, etc.
3- AC/OC Components and Modules
Multi-core CPU, memory, storage, database, device, server, proxy,
software, OS, I/O, etc.
4- AC/OC Communication and Services
Networks, self-organized net, web service, P2P, grid, EaaS,
IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, cloud computing, etc.
5- AC/OC Tools and Interfaces
Tools/interfaces for AC/OC system development, test, monitoring,
assessment, supervision, etc.
6- Trust Models and Specifications
Models and semantics of trust, distrust, mistrust, over-trust, cheat,
risk, reputation, reliability, etc.
7- Trust-related Security and Privacy
Trust-related secure architecture, framework, policy, intrusion
detection/awareness, protocols, trust-adaptive agents and communities,
data protection, users privacy, access privacy, etc.
8- Trusted Reliable and Dependable Systems
Fault-tolerant systems, hardware redundancy, robustness, survivable
systems, failure recovery, etc.
9- Trustworthy Services and Applications
Trustworthy Internet/web/P2P/grid/cloud services, secure mobile services,
secure wireless services, novel applications, etc.
10- Trust Standards and Non-Technical Issues
Trust standards and issues related to personality, ethics, sociology,
culture, psychology, economy, legal aspects, social networking etc.
The ATC 2013 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops affiliated
with the conference and addressing research areas related to the conference.
Accepted workshop papers will be included in the proceedings published by
IEEE CPS Press. For submission details/deadlines:
All papers must be submitted electronically and in PDF format. The material
presented should be original and not published or under submission elsewhere.
Authors should submit full papers of up to 8 pages, following strictly the
IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript style
(http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting), using two-column,
single-space format, with 10-point font size. Figures and references must be
included in the 8 pages. Oversized papers will be automatically rejected by
the PC chairs. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must
register early to attend the conference, in order for the paper to appear in
the conference proceedings.
Submissions are to be made to the submission web site at
Accepted main conference papers will be published by IEEE CPS
(IEEE-DL indexed). At least one author of each accepted paper is required to
register and present their work at the conference; otherwise the paper will
not be included in the proceedings.
