Call for Workshop Proposals
The 9th IEEE
International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing (ATC-2012)
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, persistable, security/privacy protectable, etc.
The ATC-2012 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.
The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have responsibility
of 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-2012 workshops will be published by IEEE-CS Conference Publishing
Services (Indexed by EI).
Prospective workshop organizers should send
a proposal containing the following information to ATC-2012 Workshop
-Title of the workshop (Full name and Abbreviation)
-Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference (up to 1
-Short bio of the key organizers and their experience on
-Procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (for example,
how to advertise and special issues of journals), and the expected number of
-A tentative list of program committee members
-The (tentative) website/URL of your
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, the submitted paper must be 6 pages, and each paper should receive 3 peer reviews.
Workshop Proposal Due: Ongoing as received
Suggested Papers Submission Deadline: May 15, 2012 (HARD DEADLINE)
Authors Notification: June 15, 2012
Final Manuscript Deadline: June 28, 2012
We look forward to your stimulating proposals
and contributions to ATC-2012 workshops. A workshop proposal should be submitted, to the workshops co-chairs: firstname.lastname@example.org.
