The 5th International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing
- Bring Safe, Self-x and Organic Computing Systems into Reality - 

                     Organized by
     University of Stavanger and Oslo University College, Norway
Technical Sponsorship by the IEEE Task Force on Intelligent Ubiquitous
Oslo, Norway, June 23-25, 2008


Computing systems including hardware, software, communication and
networks are growing dramatically in both scale and heterogeneity,
becoming overly complex. Such complexity is getting even more
critical with the ubiquitous permeation of embedded devices and
other pervasive systems. To cope with the growing and ubiquitous
complexity, Autonomic Computing (AC) focuses on self-manageable
computing and communication systems that exhibit self-awareness,
self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing,
self-protection and other self-x operations to the maximum extent
possible without human intervention or guidance. Organic Computing
(OC) additionally emphasizes natural-analogue concepts like
self-organization and controlled emergence.

Any autonomic or organic system must be trustworthy to avoid the
risk of losing control and retain confidence that the system will
not fail. Trust and/or distrust relationships in the Internet and
in pervasive infrastructures are key factors to enable dynamic
interaction and cooperation of various users, systems and services.
Trusted/Trustworthy Computing (TC) aims at making computing and
communication systems as well as services available, predictable,
traceable, controllable, assessable, sustainable, dependable,
persist-able, security/privacy protect-able, etc.

A series of grand challenges exist to achieve practical
self-manageable autonomic systems with truly trustworthy services.
ATC-08 addresses the most innovative research and development in
these challenging areas and includes all technical aspects related
to autonomic/organic computing (AC/OC) and trusted computing (TC).
ATC-08 is a successor of the First Int'l Workshop on Trusted and
Autonomic Ubiquitous and Embedded Systems (TAUES-05, Japan), the
Int'l Workshop on Trusted and Autonomic Computing Systems (TACS-06,
Austria), the 3rd International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted
Computing (ATC-06, China), and the 4th International Conference on
Autonomic and Trusted Computing (ATC-07, Hong Kong).

Topics include but are not limited to the following:

- AC/OC Theory and Models
Nervous/organic models, negotiation, cooperation,
competition, self-organization, emergence, etc.

- AC/OC Architectures and Systems
Autonomic elements & their relationship, frameworks,
middleware, observer/controller architectures, etc.

- AC/OC Components and Modules
Memory, storage, database, device, server, proxy,
software, OS, I/O, etc.

- AC/OC Communication and Services
Networks, self-organized net, web service, grid,
P2P, semantics, agent, transaction, etc.

- AC/OC Tools and Interfaces
Tools/interfaces for AC/OC system development,
test, monitoring, assessment, supervision, etc.

- Trust Models and Specifications
Models and semantics of trust, distrust, mistrust,
over-trust, cheat, risk, reputation, reliability, etc.

- Trust-related Security and Privacy
Trust-related secure architecture, framework, policy,
intrusion detection/awareness, protocols, etc.

- Trusted Reliable and Dependable Systems
Fault-tolerant systems, hardware redundancy,
robustness, survivable systems, failure recovery, etc.

- Trustworthy Services and Applications
Trustworthy Internet/web/grid/P2P e-services,
secured mobile services, novel applications, etc.

- Trust Standards and Non-Technical Issues
Trust standards and issues related to personality,
ethics, sociology, culture, psychology, economy, etc.

Submission Deadline:    January  05,  2008
Authors Notification:   March    05,  2008
Final Manuscript Due:   April    05,  2008

Prepare your paper according to the LNCS style maximum 15 pages in
PDF file. Submit your paper(s) at the ATC-08 submission site: 

Accepted papers are planned to be published by Lecture Note in
Computer Science (LNCS). The page limit of the final camera-ready
paper will be announced in the paper acceptance notification. At
least one of authors of an accepted paper is required to register
and present their work at the conference; otherwise the paper will
be removed from the digital library after the conference.

Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be published in
special issues of the Journal of Autonomic and Trusted Computing
(JoATC), the International Journal of High Performance Computing
and Networking (IJHPCN), and the International Journal on Autonomous
and Adaptive Communications Systems (IJAACS).
