Call For Papers


The Ninth IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems
(SASO 2015)

Boston Massachusetts; 21-25 September 2015

Part of FAS* - Foundation and Applications of Self* Computing Conferences
Collocated with:
The International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (CAC 2015)
The 15th IEEE Peer-to-Peer Computing Conference (P2P 2015)

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. They form the basis for
many other self-* properties, such as self-configuration, self-healing, or self-optimization. Systems exhibiting such properties are often referred to as self-* systems.

The ninth 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; human-in-the-loop;
- Applications and experiences of self-* systems: cyber security, transportation, computational sustainability, big data and creative commons, power systems; swarm systems and robotics.
- Self-* in education: experience reports; curricula; innovative course concepts; methodological aspects of self-* systems education

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. Likewise, papers describing substantial
innovation or insights in the use and communication of self-* systems in the classroom are welcome.

Where relevant and appropriate, accepted papers will also be encouraged to participate in the Demo or Poster Sessions.

Important Dates

Abstract submission: May 8, 2015
Paper submission: May 22, 2015 (There will be no extensions of this deadline!)
Notification: June 30, 2015
Camera ready copy due: July 17, 2015
Conference: September 21-25, 2015

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 2015 conference management system that will be announced on the website.

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
will also be 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.
