CAC 2013 : The Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing
Call For Papers
Recent advances in computing, networking, software and mobile technologies have led to the development of cyberspace services that are pervasive and ubiquitous and that touch all aspects of life and economy. Through such advances, cloud and autonomic services will revolutionize the way we do business, maintain our health, conduct education, and how we secure, protect, inform and entertain ourselves.
Along with these advances, however, we are experiencing strong challenges to our ability to ensure that our cyberspace resources and services are properly regulated, under appropriate review and control, manageable and secure. The insertion of increasingly automated processes and procedures into normal workflows for personal, scientific and business transactions requires extreme care in design of these systems to ensure that such challenges are properly met.
The main focus of the CAC is to be the premier international forum to present the latest research, applications, and technologies to make cloud and autonomic computing systems and services easy to design, to deploy and to implement, while achieving the simultaneous goals to be self-manageable, self-regulating and scalable with little involvement of human or system administrators.
The CAC conference main topics are grouped into four special tracks: Autonomic Cloud Computing; Autonomics for Extreme Scales; Autonomic Cybersecurity; and Autonomic Computing Foundation: Tools and Applications. Program vice-chairs in each of these research areas will coordinate the efforts regarding papers focused in these tracks.
