Deadline extended 26th March

Engineering Interactive Cloud-Based Systems Workshop
Berlin, June 20th, 2010

In conjunction with ACM SIGCHI Symposium on
Engineering Interactive Computing Systems

Autonomic Computing arose to address issues of complex systems  
configuration. However research and applications of Autonomic  
Computing have spread to other areas. This workshop seeks to  
investigate and extend the introduction of adaptable decision  
processes within complex and adaptive interactive systems with mixed  
initiatives to reduce software-maintenance complexity and allow for  
quicker updates of current best practice by the instantaneous,  
distributed deployment of decision models via Cloud computing  
technology. The workshop will attempt to bring together researchers  
from HCI and Autonomic Computing in order to address the needs of  
distributed, adaptive systems both for the designers of such systems  
and their users

The workshop will require the submission of a 2-4 pages position  
paper. Papers will be assessed for the timeliness, quality and  
relevance of their research to the workshop topic.  Accepted papers  
will be posted on the web and authors invited to read the submissions  
to promote pre-workshop discussions. The organisers will generate a  
summary paper bringing out the main points of the submissions. We  
expect these pre-workshop activities will generate a list of research  
topics and challenges. We will identify key issues raised for further  
discussion at the workshop.

The workshop will seek to build upon advances made on recently  
completed projects in the field of HCI with large scale. For example,  
2Nrich (, reporting on the effectual  
limits of current self-* tools and techniques to support self- 
organisation for autonomic computing in e-Healthcare and/or  
addressing the future direction of autonomic computing and its  
continuing relevance to emerging trends, architectures and  
technologies at larger scales. Original research work is sought  
reporting on advances in (and/or limits of) the state-of-the-art in  
autonomic and self-organising computer science at large-scales, such  
as seen in Cloud computing, for interaction. Topics of interest are  
listed in the call, below.

·       Foundational elements of autonomic computing systems and how  
they support interactive systems design.

·       Global service modelling, design, deployment, and management  
of service-oriented computing systems for HCI via a computational Cloud.

·       Self-organisation and the principles of emergent outcome for  
large assemblies of services, applications, etc. in supporting  
adaption to users’ needs.

·       Security, trust and social issues in systems where privacy is  
a vital concern, such as e-Health applications, and their autonomic  
systems subject to emergent self-organisation.

·       Comparison of centralised autonomic computing vs.  
decentralised emergent self-organising approaches in providing a  
transparent and seamless human-computational Cloud interaction  
whatever the context.

·       Languages and tools to support autonomic response via self- 

·       Biological and economic inspired interaction mechanisms:  
catallaxy, stigmergy, swarm intelligence, etc.

·       Novel architectures, frameworks, tools and techniques  
exploiting scientific principles for autonomic computing
