Call for Workshop Proposals

   ATC 2011 is the next event of the series of International Conference on Autonomic Computing and Communications (ATC) after it has been successfully held for continuous 7 years in Nagasaki, Vienna, Three Gorges (China), Hong Kong, Oslo, Brisbane and Xian, respectively.

   ATC 2011 will host multiple one or half day workshops co-located with the main conference in Banff, Alberta, Canada. The workshops are intended to provide researchers and participants with an exciting international forum to exchange novel research ideas, to discuss challenges in a wide range of topics, to identify emerging research areas, and to define future directions.

   We invite your submissions of workshop proposals on any topic related to autonomic and trusted computing . The ideal workshop proposal should focus on a specific area, be of current interest, and be able to attract a number of high-quality submissions. Proposals on specific new challenges, emerging topics guaranteed to generate significant interest in the community are highly encouraged.

   Proceedings of ATC 2011 workshops will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (Indexed by EI). The workshops with more than accepted 15 papers will be granted with a free complimentary registration for the leading workshop organizer.

Proposal Submission

   Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to ATC 2011 Workshop Chairs:

  • Title of the workshop(full name and abbreviation)
  • Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference(up to 1 page)
  • Short bio of the key organizers and their experience on conference/workshop organization
  • Procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (for example, how to advertise and special issues of journals), and the expected number of participants
  • A tentative list of program committee members
  • A tentative website address
  •    Each workshop should identify one organizer as the point of contact. A brief advertisement plan should be included in the proposal.

       Approved workshops should strictly follow the important dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates. The submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. But a workshop should have sufficient time, say 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 3 peer reviews.

       Proposals should be sent via email to all workshops chairs. Enquiries can also be sent to any one of the workshops chairs.
