The IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC) has been 
the leading conference on autonomic computing since its inception in 
2004. Continuing on its past successes, the 16th edition of ICAC will be 
held in Umea, Sweden during June, 2019, as part of the FAS* event 
federated with SASO 2019. The conference seeks novel research advances 
on science and engineering from both academia and industries, concerning 
all aspects of autonomic computing, including but not limited to the 
following research topics:

---Fundamental theory of autonomic computing
---Algorithms, artificial intelligence, biological-inspired techniques, 
control theory, machine learning, operation research, probability and 
stochastic processes, queueing theory, rule-based systems, and 
socially-inspired techniques
---Formal models and analysis of self-management, emergent behavior, 
uncertainty, self-organization, self-awareness, and trustworthiness

**Autonomic Cloud Computing
---Self-managing cloud services
---Cloud workload characterization and prediction
---Hypervisors, operating systems, middleware, and platforms for 
self-managing data centers and cloud infrastructures
---Monitoring, modeling and analysis of cloud resources and services
---Autonomic aspects of combining cloud computing with fog and edge 

**Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT)
---System architectures, services, middleware, and protocols for CPS and 
---Energy, real-time, and mobility management
---Design principles, methodologies, and tools for CPS and IoT
---Self-organization under severe resource constraints
---Applications and case studies of autonomic CPS and IoT
---Sensing and computing/storage/networking/power/cooling resource 

**Self-Organization and Organic Computing
---Self-organization principles and organic computing principles 
borrowed from systems theory, control theory, game theory, decision 
theory, social theories, biological theories, etc.
---Self-organization, emergent behavior, decentralized control, 
individual and social/organizational learning, scalability, robustness, 
goal- and norm-governed behavior, online self-integration for 
trustworthy self-organizing and organic systems
---Infrastructures and architectures for self-organizing systems and 
organic computing systems
---Applications and case studies for self-organization and organic 

**Emerging Computing Paradigms: Cognitive Computing, Self-Aware 
---Advanced learning for cognitive computing such as hyperparameter 
tuning, meta-cognitive learning, self-regulatory learning, consciousness 
and cognition in learning, collaborative / competitive learning, and 
online / sequential learning
---Architectures, control, algorithmic approaches, instrumentation, and 
infrastructure for cognitive computing and self-aware systems
---Cognitive computing and self-awareness in heterogeneous and 
decentralized systems
---Applications and case studies for social networks, big data systems, 
deep learning systems, games, and artificial assistants, cognitive 
robots, and systems with self-awareness and self-expression

**Software Engineering for Autonomic Computing Systems: Architecture, 
Specifications, Assurances
---Design methodology, frameworks, principles, infrastructures, and 
tools for development and assurances for autonomic computing systems
---System architectures, services, components and platforms broadly 
applicable for autonomic computing system engineering
---Goal specification and policies, modeling of service-level 
agreements, behavior enforcement, IT governance, and business-driven IT 
---Applications and case studies for software engineering approaches for 
autonomic computing systems

**Cross-cutting Themes
---Resource management
---Applications and case studies of end-to-end design and implementation 
of systems for resource and performance management
---Autonomics for extreme scales, e.g., peta/exa-computing

In addition to fundamental results, ICAC is also interested in 
applications and experiences with prototyped or deployed systems solving 
real-world problems in science, engineering, business, or society. 
Typical application areas for ICAC include but are not limited to 
autonomous robotics, cloud/fog/edge computing, cyber-physical systems, 
data centers, dependable computing, industrial internet / industry 4.0, 
internet of things, mobile computing, service-oriented systems, smart 
buildings, smart city, smart grid / energy management, smart factory, 
smart user interfaces, space applications, and traffic management.

Paper Submission
All submissions must represent original and unpublished work that is not 
currently under review. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three PC 
members. Papers are assessed based on originality, significance, 
interest, correctness, clarity, and relevance to the broader community. 
At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the 
Each paper should be submitted in one of the following two categories, 
to which different acceptance criteria are to be applied:
----Full paper, limited to 10 pages including references (double column, 
IEEE format)
----Short paper, limited to 6 pages including references (double column, 
IEEE format)

Full papers are expected to report new scientific or engineering 
results, sharing experiences, measurements, use case studies, and 
appropriate quantitative evaluation if at all possible. Short papers can 
either be work in progress, or position papers that motivate the 
community to address new challenges. One paper among those that will be 
accepted for publication in the conference proceedings is going to be 
selected and awarded the Karsten Schwan Best Paper Award.

Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format according to the 
instructions on the ICAC 2019 web site: http://icac2019.cs.umu.se/. 
Submission website: https://icac19.hotcrp.com/

There will be a BEST PAPER AWARD for the full research paper category 
it is panned that a selection of the best papers of the full research 
category will be invited to submit an extended version of their 
for an ICAC 2019 SPECIAL ISSUE after the conference.
