Diwakar Krishnamurthy, University of Calgary
We solicit tutorial proposals falling within the scope of the ICAC '14 Call for Papers (CFP). Of particular interest are tutorials relating to the following areas:
- AI and mathematical techniques, such as machine learning, control theory, operations research, probability and stochastic processes, queueing theory, rule-based systems, and bio-inspired techniques, and their use in autonomic computing
- End-to-end design and implementation of systems for management of resources, workloads, scalability, availability, performance, reliability, power/cooling, and security
- Hypervisors, operating systems, middleware, or application support for autonomic computing
- Novel human interfaces for monitoring and controlling autonomic systems
- Automated management techniques for emerging applications, systems, and platforms, including social networks, cloud computing, big data systems, multi-core servers, smart cities, and cyber-physical systems
A proposal should be a maximum of 2 pages and should contain the following mandatory information:
- Tutorial title
- Names of the corresponding presenter and co-presenters along with their affiliations
- Type: half-day (3 hours) or full-day (6 hours)
- Target audience (e.g., type of attendees (researcher, practitioners) and pre-requisite knowledge)
- Past experience: Evidence of scholarship in the proposed area and details of previous tutorial or similar experience of presenters
- Proposal description: The importance of the topic and its relevance to ICAC attendees should be clearly established. Brief descriptions should be provided on the flow of topics, the content of individual topics, and the approximate time that will be spent on each topic. We ask that you keep the proposal at a fairly high level while still providing enough information for the ICAC tutorial program committee to get a general feel of the session. Proposals that emphasize a reasonably broad and balanced treatment of the chosen topic will be preferred over those that promote a narrow research agenda or product.
- Copyright concerns: If accepted, do you have the necessary permissions to present the tutorial?
A proposal will be judged on the basis of relevance, timeliness, and expected interest of the topic to ICAC attendees, technical quality, quality of the proposal document, and expertise of the presenters. Proposals must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject containing the term "ICAC '14 Tutorial Proposal".
