Self-IoT, Self-aware Internet of Things

a special track in ICAC 2013

The 10th International Conference on Autonomic Computing

June 26-28 2013, San Jose, California, USA




Spectacular advances in technology have introduced increasingly
complex and large scale computer and communication systems. Autonomic
computing has been proposed as a grand challenge that will allow
systems to self-manage this complexity, using high-level objectives
and policies defined by humans. Internet of things (IoT) will
exponentially increase the scale and the complexity of existing
computing and communication systems; the autonomy is thus an
imperative property for IoT systems. However, there is still a lack of
research on new techniques adapted to the IoT context or on how to
adapt and tailor existing research on autonomic computing to the
specific characteristics of IoT such as high dynamicity and
distribution, real-time nature, resources constraints, and lossy

Following the successful first edition of the Self-IoT workshop held
in conjunction with the ICAC '12, ICAC '13 will host this special
track on Self-aware Internet of Things that aims at drawing the
attention of both IoT and autonomic computing communities to the
emerging needs and challenges for self-aware IoT. The main goal is to
gather different scientific communities from academy and industry
under one common objective: realizing plug-n-play, context-aware and
autonomous Internet of things that will be self-configured,
self-organized, self-optimized and self-healed without (or with
minimum) human intervention.

The Self-IoT track welcomes original research papers related to
self-management in IoT. Besides theoretical aspects, Self-IoT is also
interested in practical results of self-management in IoT

Topics of interest

- Software engineering for self-adaptive Internet of things,
model-oriented approaches, automated tools for development, deployment
and supervision of IoT devices and services
- Plug-n-play IoT, IoT device/service discovery protocols,
self-matchmaking of Internet of things and Internet of services
- Modelling environmental context and user behaviour, semantic IoT,
self-adaptation to context
- Autonomous IoT clouds, self-provisioning of IoT services
- Control theory in IoT, distributed control loops, decision making
mechanisms, prediction models at run-time, learning from experience,
relations with artificial intelligence techniques, multi-agent
approaches for autonomic IoT
- Event-Condition-Action rules, objective functions, prediction models
applied to the IoT, adaptation of techniques such as Bayesian
networks, decision trees or fuzzy logic to the IoT context
- Performance monitoring, diagnostics and self-healing in IoT
- Autonomic security and dependency management; robust and trustable IoT systems
- Self-organizing network protocols, ad-hoc routing mechanisms,
cognitive networks adapted to resource constrained devices and lossy
- Autonomic experience in IoT applications such as smart
home/building, smart transport, smart city, smart healthcare and smart
- Autonomicity and self-management in M2M communication systems and
networks; autonomicity support in IPv6
- Modeling, measurement, and simulation of multi-networks of autonomic
IoT applications, such as energy sensing and management, vehicle
control, mobile devices, and emergency management

The Self-IoT track is sponsored by three European projects on IoT:
BUTLER (, iCore ( and IoT.est
(, which belong to the IERC-European Research
Cluster on the Internet of Things
