Call For Papers


The Eight IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems
(SASO 2014)

Imperial College, London (UK); 8-12 September 2014

Part of FAS* - Foundation and Applications of Self* Computing Conferences
Collocated with:
The International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (CAC 2014)
The 14th IEEE Peer-to-Peer Computing Conference

Aims and Scope
The aim of the Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing systems conference series (SASO) is to provide a forum for the foundations of a principled approach to engineering
systems, networks and services based on self-adaptation and self-organization. The complexity of current and emerging networks, software and services, especially
in dealing with dynamics in the environment and problem domain, has led the software engineering, distributed systems and management communities to look for
inspiration in diverse fields (e.g., complex systems, control theory, artificial intelligence, sociology, and biology) to find new ways of designing and managing
such computing systems. In this endeavor, self-organization and self-adaptation have emerged as two promising interrelated approaches.

The eight edition of the SASO conference embraces the inter-disciplinarity and the scientific, empirical and application dimensions of self-* systems and welcomes
novel results on both self-adaptive and self-organizing systems research. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Self-* systems theory: theoretical frameworks and models; biologically- and socially-inspired paradigms; inter-operation of self-* mechanisms;
- Self-* systems engineering: reusable mechanisms, design patterns, architectures, methodologies; software and middleware development frameworks and methods, platforms
and toolkits; hardware; self-* materials;
- Self-* system properties: robustness, resilience and stability; emergence; computational awareness and self-awareness; reflection;
- Self-* cyber-physical and socio-technical systems: human factors and visualization; self-* social computers; crowdsourcing and collective awareness;
- Applications and experiences of self-* systems: cyber security, transportation, computational sustainability, big data and creative commons, power systems.

Contributions must present novel theoretical or experimental results; novel design patterns, mechanisms, system architectures, frameworks or tools; or practical
approaches and experiences in building or deploying real-world systems and applications. Contributions contrasting different approaches for engineering a given
family of systems, or demonstrating the applicability of a certain approach for different systems, are equally encouraged. Where relevant and appropriate, accepted papers
will also be encouraged to submit accompanying papers for the Demo or Poster Sessions.

Important Dates
Abstract submission: May 2, 2014
Paper submission: May 09, 2014
Notification: June 21, 2014
Camera ready copy due: July 18, 2014
Early registration: August 22, 2014
Conference: September 8 - 12, 2014

Submission Instructions
All submissions should be 10 pages and formatted according to the IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings style guide and submitted electronically in PDF format.
Please register as authors and submit your papers using the SASO 2014 conference management system, which is located at:

The proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, and made available as a part of the IEEE digital library. Note that a separate call for poster submissions
has also been issued.

Review Criteria

Papers should present novel ideas in the cross-disciplinary research context described in this call, clearly motivated by problems from current practice or applied research.
We expect both theoretical and empirical contributions to be clearly stated, substantiated by formal analysis, simulation, experimental evaluations, comparative studies, and so on.
Appropriate reference must be made to related work. Because SASO is a cross-disciplinary conference, papers must be intelligible and relevant to researchers who are not
members of the same specialized sub-field. Authors are also encouraged to submit papers describing applications. Application papers are expected to provide an indication of the real world relevance of the problem
that is solved, including a description of the deployment domain, and some form of evaluation of performance, usability, or comparison to alternative approaches. Experience papers
are also welcome but they must clearly state the insight into any aspect of design, implementation or management of self-* systems which is of benefit to practitioners and the SASO community
