*****  AUTONOMICS 2009 *****

3nd International ICST Conference on Autonomic Computing and  
Communication Systems

September 9-11, 2009, Republic of Cyprus, Cyprus Univerity of  
Technology, Limassol, Cyprus

Sponsored by ICST, technically sponsored by CREATE-NET

***** Call for Workshop Proposals *****

The ICST Autonomics 2009 Organizing Committee invites proposals for  
the Workshop Program to be held on September 9-11 within the main  
technical conference.
Autonomics 2009 workshops will provide a meeting for presenting novel  
ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the  
conference itself. Its aim is to stimulate and facilitate active  
exchange, interaction, and comparison of approaches, methods, and  
ideas related to specific topics, both theoretical and applied, in the  
general area of Autonomic Computing and Communication Systems.   
Members from all areas of the Autonomics community are invited to  
submit workshop proposals for review. Workshops on new and emerging  
topics, or on applications, are particularly encouraged.

Workshops can vary in length, but most will be one full day in  
duration. Workshop organizers and attendees are expected to register  
both for their workshop and the main Autonomics conference.

Workshop proceedings will be published by LNICST (Springer Verlang).

in plain ASCII text, as soon as possible but no later than: April 15,  

Prospective organizers will be notified of the committee's decision no  
later than: April 20, 2009
The selection of the workshops to be included in the final Autonomics  
2009 Workshop program will be based upon multiple factors, including:  
the scientific/technical interest of the topics, the quality of the  
proposal, balance and distinctness of workshop topics, and the  
capacity of the conference workshop program. Note that authors of  
proposals addressing similar and/or overlapping content areas and/or  
audiences may be requested to merge their proposals.

Responsibilities of Autonomics 2009 and Workshop Organizers

For all accepted proposals, Autonomics 2009 will be responsible for:

* Providing publicity for the workshop series as a whole.
* Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the workshop.
* Together with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time.
* Duplicating working notes and distributing them to the participants.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following:

* Setting up a web site for the workshop.
* Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for papers
* Collecting and evaluating submissions, notifying authors of  
acceptance or rejection on a timely basis, and ensuring a transparent  
and fair selection process.
* Ensuring that the workshop organizers and the participants register  
to the workshop and to the main conference (at least one author must  
register for both the workshop and the conference for the paper to  
appear in the workshop notes and ACM post-proceedings).
* Prepare ACM post-proceedings including revised versions of papers  
(Deadlines to be communicated in due time)

Autonomics reserves the right to cancel any workshop if the above  
responsibilities are not fulfilled, or if too few attendees register
