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 (www.cms.livjm.ac.uk/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
