Workshop 09- AHPC

International Workshop on Autonomic and High Performance Computing

(AHPC 2011)

Call for Papers

As part of

The 2011 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation

(HPCS 2011)

In Conjunction With

The International Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing Conference (IWCMC 2011)

July 4 – 8, 2011

Istanbul, Turkey

(Submission Deadline: February 28, 2011)


Due to the increasing complexity, scale and heterogeneity in computing systems and applications, including hardware, software, sensors, communication and networks, there are needs for Autonomic Computing (AC) focusing on self-manageable systems that exhibit self-configuration, self-healing, self-protection, self-optimization, and/or self-monitoring. It is getting even more critical with the ubiquitous permeation of embedded devices. The purpose of this workshop is intended to bring together specialists and researchers in those converging specialties to share views and address technical issues and developments for autonomic and high performance computing.

The Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Autonomic computing systems that exhibit self-configuration, self-healing, self-protection, self-optimization, and/or self-monitoring

  • Software engineering principles and architectures

  • Data analysis and decision techniques

  • Monitoring systems

  • Theory and practice of autonomic systems

  • Management of resources including hardware, workloads, faults, security, power, and other challenges

  • Knowledge-based and/or intelligent user interfaces

  • Self-adaptability and self-management of context-aware systems

  • Modeling, virtualization, operating systems or application in autonomic computing


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to autonomic and high performance computing. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 450 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the Workshop organizers at and

Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings that will be made available at the time of the meeting.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the organizers.

Important Dates:

  • Full Paper Submission Deadline: February 28, 2011

  • Notification of Acceptance: March 24, 2011

  • Extended Registration & Camera-Ready Manuscripts Due: April 29, 2011

  • Conference Date: July 4-8, 2011
