Call for Workshops

In addition to the main conference’s technical program, ICAC’16 will include a set of workshops. The goal of the workshops is to explore emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on topics related (but not limited) to all aspects of self-managing systems, e.g., performance, dependability, energy-efficiency, and security, and their applications, e.g., software design, datacenters, cloud, mobile, IoT, and automobiles.

We seek proposals from individuals and teams interested in organizing strong workshops. Each workshop will be a half day or full day. The dates for paper submission, notification and camera-ready version would preferably be coordinated across the selected workshops. Papers submitted to the individual workshops will likely be due in late April 2016 (the notification of acceptance date of the ICAC main conference is April 15 2015), with the camera-ready version due in May. All workshop papers will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore.

The workshop proposal, in plain text or PDF (limited to 4 pages), should provide the following information:

  1. Title, scope and topics of the workshop
  2. The specifics of the workshop organization team
  3. Tentative committee lists (organizers, steering committee if any, etc.)
  4. Workshop tentative schedule
  5. Workshop format planned (papers, interactive discussion, panels, etc.)
  6. If the workshop has past workshops, the history of the workshop (where held, number of papers submitted and accepted, number of participants)

Please include a draft call for papers, if available.
