We invite original and high-quality research submissions addressing all
aspects of Autonomic Clouds, as long as the connection to the focus
topic is clear and emphasized. Experience reports, surveys, critical
evaluations of the state of the art, and insightful analysis of
established and upcoming technologies are also welcome. Selected papers
will be published in the IEEE Cloud Computing Magazine.

*Extended submission deadline: 1 April 2015* • Publication date:
May/June 2015

Cloud computing continues to increase in complexity due to both the
increasing availability of configuration options from public cloud
providers and the increasing variability and types of application
instances that can be deployed on such platforms—for example, tuning
options in hypervisors that enable different virtual machine instances
to be associated with physical machines; storage, compute, and I/O
preferences that offer different power and price; and operating system
configurations that provide differing degrees of performance or
security. This complexity can also be seen in enterprise-scale
datacenters that dominate computing infrastructures in industry, which
are growing in size and complexity, leading to complex business
applications and workflows. Autonomic computing enables self-management
of systems and applications. The underlying concepts and mechanisms of
autonomics can be applied to each component within a cloud system
(resource manager/scheduler, power manager, and so on) as well as to the
cloud system as a whole, or they can be applied within an application
that makes use of such a cloud system. Autonomics can also play a
critical role as applications explore dynamic federations of cloud
infrastructure and services. We invite contributions that address a
number of topics related to the use of autonomic computing approaches
for managing cloud infrastructure, creating and managing federations of
clouds infrastructure and services, and managing scientific applications
hosted on a cloud infrastructure.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  * Auto-scaling strategies
  * Adaptive deployment, configuration, and management approaches
  * Use of feedback and adaptive control strategies for cloud management
  * Adaptive applications development
  * Quality of service management
  * Adaptive data management and processing on clouds
  * Intrusion estimation and detection systems
  * Autonomic federation of cloud infrastructure and services
  * Platforms for autonomic applications
