2017 IEEE International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (ICCAC)

The University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, USA

September 18-22, 2017

Co-located with the IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems


Enterprise-scale cloud platforms and services systems, present common and cross-cutting challenges in maximizing power efficiency and performance while maintaining predictable and reliable behavior, and at the same time responding appropriately to environmental and system changes such as hardware failures and varying workloads. Autonomic computing systems address the challenges in managing these environments by integrating monitoring, decision-processing and actuation capabilities to autonomously manage resources and applications based on high-level policies.

Research in cloud and autonomic computing spans a variety of areas, from distributed systems, computer architecture, middleware services, databases and data-stores, networks, machine learning, and control theory. The purpose of the Fifth International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (ICCAC) is to bring together researchers and practitioners across these disciplines to address the multiple facets of cloud and autonomic computing.

Papers are solicited on a broad array of topics of relevance to cloud and autonomic computing and their intersections, including  those that bear on connections and relationships among different research areas or report on prototype systems or experiences. The ICCAC conference seeks also papers on autonomic aspects of combining cloud computing with fog and edge computing. The goal is to continue our  international forum focused on the latest research, applications, and technologies aimed at making cloud and autonomic computing systems and services easy to design, to deploy, and to implement, while also being self-manageable, self-regulating and scalable with little involvement of humans or system administrators.

Important Dates

Papers submission deadline: June 5, 2017
Author notification: June 23, 2017
Camera-ready papers: July 21, 2017

Paper/Poster Submission and Publication

Full papers (a maximum of 12 pages in length), industrial experience reports (a maximum of 8 pages) and posters (a maximum of 4 pages) are invited on a wide variety of topics relating to cloud and autonomic computing as indicated above. All papers must follow the IEEE proceedings format. All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on merits including originality, significance, interest, correctness, clarity, and relevance to the broader community. Papers are strongly encouraged to report experiences, measurements, and user studies, and to provide an appropriate quantitative evaluation.

Submitted papers must include original work, and may not be under consideration for another conference or journal. They should also not be under review or be submitted to another forum during the ICCAC 2017 review process. Authors should submit full papers or posters electronically following the instructions from the ICCAC 2017 conference web site. Accepted papers and posters will appear in proceedings distributed at the conference and available electronically. Authors of accepted papers/poster are expected to present their work at the conference.

Authors are also encouraged to submit a poster or demo that summarizes and highlights the main points of their paper.
