Second Call for Submissions
ICAS 2006
Silicon Valley, July 19-21, 2006

The Second International Conference on Autonomic and Autonomous Systems (ICAS 2006)
is organized July 19-21 2006 in Silicon Valley, California.

The conference focuses on general concepts of systems automation, and methodologies and
techniques for designing, implementing and deploying autonomic and autonomous systems.
Other special topics are concerning context-aware networks, services and applications, and the
design and management of self-behavioral networks and services. It is also considering monitoring,
control, and management of autonomous self-aware and context-aware systems and topics
dedicated to specific autonomous entities, namely, satellite systems, nomadic code systems,
mobile networks, and robots. It has been recognized that modeling (in all forms this activity is
known) is the fundamental for autonomous subsystems, as both managed and management
entities must communicate and understand each other. Small-scale and large-scale virtualization
and model-driven architecture, as well as management challenges in such architectures are
considered.

SYSAT 2006: Advances in system automation
AUTSY 2006: Theory and practice of autonomous systems
AWARE 2006: Design and deployment of context-awareness networks, services and applications
AUTONOMIC 2006: Autonomic computing: design and management of self-behavioral Networks and Services
MCMAC 2006: Monitoring, control, and management of autonomous self-aware
CASES 2006: Automation in specialized mobile environments
ALCOC 2006: Algorithms and theory for control and computation
MODEL 2006: Modeling, virtualization, any-on-demand, MDA, SOA

We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers
addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the
standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and
solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, workshops, and
panel proposals.
