Self-IoT, International Workshop on Self-aware Internet of Things
September 17th 2012, San Jose, California, USA
in conjunction with
ICAC 2012, The 9th International Conference on Autonomic Computing



Spectacular advances in technology have introduced increasingly complex and large scale computer and communication systems. Autonomic computing has been proposed as a grand challenge that will allow the systems self-manage this complexity, using high-level objectives and policies defined by humans. Internet of things (IoT) will exponentially increase the scale and the complexity of existing computing and communication systems; the autonomy is thus an imperative property for IoT systems. However, there is still a lack of research on how to adapt and tailor existing research on autonomic computing to the specific characteristics of IoT such as high dynamicity and distribution, real-time nature, resources constraints, and lossy environments. The goal of this International Workshop on Self-aware Internet of Things is to deal with the important, challenging and emerging needs of IoT applications that are becoming omnipresent in our daily lives (e.g., at home, office, transport, city and urban environments). The Self-IoT aims to be a reference workshop that will gather different scientific communities from academy and industry under one common objective: realizing plug&play, context-aware and autonomous Internet of things that will be self-configured, self-organized, self-optimized and self-healed without (or with minimum) human intervention.

The workshop is looking for novel ideas, works in progress or deployment experiences in application domains such as smart city, smart home/building, smart transport, smart retail and smart healthcare.

Topics of interest

- Software engineering for self-adaptive internet of things, model-oriented approaches, automated tools for development, deployment and supervision of IoT devices and services
- Autonomous IoT Clouds, self-provisioning of IoT Services
- Control theory in IoT, distributed control loops, decision making mechanisms, prediction models at run-time, learning from experience, relations with artificial intelligence techniques, multi-agent approaches for autonomic IoT
- Modelling environmental context and user behaviour, semantic IoT, self-adaptation to context
- Event-Condition-Action rules, objective functions, prediction models applied to the IoT, adaptation of techniques such as Bayesian networks, decision trees or fuzzy logic to the IoT context;
- Performance monitoring, diagnostics and self-healing of the IoT
- Plug-n-play IoT, IoT device/service discovery protocols, self-matchmaking of Internet of things and Internet of services
- Autonomic security and dependency management; robust and trustable IoT systems
- Self-organizing network protocols, ad-hoc routing mechanisms, cognitive networks adapted to resource constrained devices and lossy environments
- Autonomic experience in IoT applications such as smart home/building, smart transport, smart city, smart healthcare and smart retailer.

Submission instructions

Papers should be a maximum of 6 pages in the two-column ACM proceedings format (see the ICAC formatting instructions on the main conference web site). Submitted papers must be original work and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal. All papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Accepted papers will be distributed at the conference electronically and be published by ACM.
Papers can be submitted via the easychair using the following link:

The European projects BUTLER, OUTSMART, iCore and IoT.est will jointly sponsor the workshop, a best paper award and potentially a number of free registrations for students are planned.

As an important support action for researchers interested in Self-Awareness in Autonomic Systems, Awareness project ( will also sponsor the workshop. Awareness is a FET coordination action funded by the European Commission under FP7.
