ICAC is the leading conference on autonomic computing techniques,
foundations, and applications. Large-scale systems of all types, such as
data centers, compute clouds, smart cities, cyber-physical systems, sensor
networks, and embedded or pervasive environments, are becoming increasingly
complex and burdensome for people to manage. Achieving self-management
requires and motivates research that spans a wide variety of scientific and
engineering disciplines, including distributed systems, artificial
intelligence, machine learning, modeling, control theory, optimization,
planning, decision theory, user interface design, data management, software
engineering, emergent behavior analysis, and bio-inspired computing.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Self-managing components, such as compute, storage, networking devices,
embedded and real time systems, and mobile devices.
* AI and mathematical techniques, such as machine learning, control theory,
operations research, probability and stochastic processes, queueing theory,
rule-based systems, bio-inspired techniques.
* End-to-end design and implementation of systems for management of
resources, workloads, scalability, availability, performance, reliability,
power/cooling, and security.
* Monitoring components and platforms for autonomic systems in IT or
cyber-physical environments.
* Hypervisors, operating systems, middleware, and application support for
autonomic computing.
* Novel human interfaces for monitoring and controlling autonomic systems.
* Goal specification and policies, IT governance, and business-driven IT
* Frameworks, architectures, toolkits (from software engineering practices
and to agent-based techniques).
* Automated management techniques for emerging applications, systems, and
platforms, including social networks, cloud computing, big data systems,
multi-core servers, smart cities, and cyber-physical systems.
* Fundamental science and theory of self-managing systems
* Self-organization and emergent behavior in technical systems trustworthy
self-organizing systems.
* Infrastructures and architectures for organic computing systems.
* Online self-integration of complex systems.
* Applications of autonomic computing and experiences with prototyped or
deployed systems solving real-world problems in science, engineering,
 business, or society.

Paper Submission

All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not
currently under review. Papers will be judged on originality, significance,
interest, correctness, clarity, and relevance to the broader community.
Papers are strongly encouraged to report on experiences, measurements, user
studies, and provide an appropriate quantitative evaluation if at all
possible. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend
the conference.

Papers can be submitted in one of the following three categories with
different acceptance criteria for each category:

* Full research papers limited to 10 pages (double column)
* Experience papers limited to 8 pages (double column)
* Short papers limited to 6 pages (double column)

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the ICAC 2015
