*** ACSOS 2023 - Call for Research Artifacts ******

4th IEEE International Conference on
Autonomic Computing and Self-Organizing Systems

25-29 September 2023 - Toronto, Canada



The world is increasingly embracing autonomous systems: in robotics,
manufacturing, software engineering, vehicles, data center systems,
and precision agriculture to name just a few areas. These systems are
bringing autonomy to a whole new level of dynamic decision-making
under uncertainty, requiring autonomic behavior (e.g., control theory,
cybernetics) and self-reference, leading to a range of self-*
properties (e.g., self-awareness, self-adaptation, self-organization),
and an approach in which system implementation and its environment are
holistically considered.

Despite this rise in autonomic and self-* systems, there remains a
wide range of fundamental challenges in understanding how to design,
control, reason about, and trust such systems. The IEEE ACSOS
conference solicits novel research on these topics, in fundamentals
and methods as well as applications for autonomic and self-* systems.
Now in its 4th edition, ACSOS was founded in 2020 as a merger of the
IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC) and the
IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing
Systems (SASO).

ACSOS 2023 will offer an artifact track. Our aim is to encourage the
community to build high-quality artifacts that support evaluating
novel approaches, methods, or applications for autonomic and self-*
systems that can also be reused, shared and extended by other
researchers. Our long-term goal is to establish a collection of
reusable evaluation setups and case studies. Creating and maintaining
a catalog of artifacts will also support discussing, comparing and
assessing the research conducted in this community.

We are interested but not limited to:

* Software systems, including implementation testbeds or exemplars.

* Frameworks that potentially include tools and services that
   illustrate and implement new approaches, techniques, or algorithms
   for self-* and autonomic systems.

* Data and datasets that include, e.g., logging data, system traces,
   sensor data, or raw survey data that can support various phases of
   the engineering process of self-* and autonomic systems.

The published artifact papers will be associated with IEEE
Reproducibility Badges in the conference program and conference
proceedings. Artifacts will be evaluated according to 5 key criteria:
understandability, timeliness, usability, quality of documentation,
and quality of code.
