2017 IEEE International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (ICCAC)

The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, USA

September 18-22, 2017

Co-located with the IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and
Self-Organizing Systems

=== Overview ===

Enterprise-scale cloud platforms and services systems, present common
and cross-cutting challenges in maximizing power efficiency and
performance while maintaining predictable and reliable behavior, and
at the same time responding appropriately to environmental and system
changes such as hardware failures and varying workloads. Autonomic
computing systems address the challenges in managing these
environments by integrating monitoring, decision-processing and
actuation capabilities to autonomously manage resources and
applications based on high-level policies.

Research in cloud and autonomic computing spans a variety of areas,
from distributed systems, computer architecture, middleware services,
databases and data-stores, networks, machine learning, and control
theory. The purpose of the Fifth International Conference on Cloud and
Autonomic Computing (ICCAC) is to bring together researchers and
practitioners across these disciplines to address the multiple facets
of cloud and autonomic computing.

Papers are solicited on a broad array of topics of relevance to cloud
and autonomic computing and their intersections, including those that
bear on connections and relationships among different research areas
or report on prototype systems or experiences. The ICCAC conference
seeks also papers on autonomic aspects of combining cloud computing
with fog and edge computing. The goal is to continue our international
forum focused on the latest research, applications, and technologies
aimed at making cloud and autonomic computing systems and services
easy to design, to deploy, and to implement, while also being
self-manageable, self-regulating and scalable with little involvement
of humans or system administrators.
