The ICAS 2007 (International Conference on Autonomic and Autonomous Systems) is a multi-track event covering related topics on theory and practice on systems automation, autonomous systems and autonomic computing.
The main tracks refer to the general concepts of systems automation, and methodologies and techniques for designing, implementing and deploying autonomous systems. Next tracks develop around design and deployment of 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. Autonomic features and autonomy requires a fundamental theory behind and solid control mechanisms. These topics give credit to specific advanced practical and theoretical aspects that allow subsystem to expose complex behavior. It is aimed to expose specific advancements on theory and tool in supporting advanced autonomous systems. Domain case studies (policy, mobility, survivability, privacy, etc.) and specific technology (wireless, wireline, optical, e-commerce, banking, etc.) case studies are targeted. A special track on mobile environments is indented to cover examples and aspects from mobile systems, networks, codes, and robotics.
The call for regular submissions covers both theoretical and experimental topics. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited topic areas. Industrial presentations are not subject to these constraints. Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

2. Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations:
The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the conference’s CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send your presentations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals can be half or full day tutorials. Send your proposals to email@example.com.
Proposals on controversial and challenging topics are expected. Send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. Workshop proposals
We welcome workshop proposals on issues complementary to the topics of this conference. Your requests should be forwarded to email@example.com.
