ACSOS 2020
Mon 17 - Fri 21 August 2020

The 1st IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing and Self-Organizing Systems (ACSOS) provides a forum to share the latest research results, ideas and experiences in autonomic, self-adaptive, and self-organizing systems.

ACSOS was founded in 2020 as a merging of the two long-running IEEE ICAC and SASO conferences, bringing together the two leading communities in this research space.

The Doctoral Symposium provides an international forum for PhD students working in ACSOS-related research fields to present their work to a diverse audience of leading experts in the field, to gain both insightful feedback and discussion points around their research as well as the invaluable experience of presenting new research to an international audience. The symposium has a strong history, though ICAC and SASO, of connecting young researchers with highly experienced peers to forge connections which can last for many years.

PhD students are invited to submit a two-page abstract, with another page for references, which should use the below format to describe the key motivation of their research, the major contribution (either actual or expected, depending on the research stage), discuss their methodology, and present the current status of the research. Authors of accepted papers will have the opportunity to present their work both at the doctoral symposium and in brief at the main conference itself, offering a very wide audience for their research.

Students at any stage of their PhD are welcome to submit. Reviews, feedback, and expectations will be adapted appropriately to the relative stage of each submission.

Mentoring Program

This year the Doctoral Symposium will employ a mentoring program, in which every author of an accepted paper will be paired with an experienced mentor from the community. Mentors will help introduce the student to the community, offer extended discussion of their research objectives and career opportunities, and will host their students throughout the event to help gain the best experience from an international conference.

Submission Instructions

Submissions should use the IEEE Computer Society Press format https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html and should be a maximum of 2 pages long, with an extra page permitted for references.

Authors should submit their abstracts to EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=acsos20

Because the doctoral symposium focuses on the work of specific PhD students, please note that only single-author submissions are permitted, with the name of the PhD supervisor included below that of the author.

All submissions should have the following specific structure:

Motivation and challenges: explain why this research is important, and identify the key research question and challenges that have yet to be addressed by the community - including limitations of current approaches

Contribution and objectives: present the main contribution of the research, in a way that a non-expert could clearly understand, then present the detailed objectives of your research, highlighting why your work is novel in comparison to existing research

Methodology and preliminary results: present the methodology of your approach, discussing why it is suitable to your contribution, and also present any preliminary results if you have them

Future work and research plan: summarise your intended future work, and provide a schedule of milestones with a discussion of their feasibility

Authors of accepted submissions will prepare a final (camera-ready) version of their abstract, taking into account reviewers’ feedback. Doctoral symposium papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore as part of the ACSOS proceedings and will be made available in the IEEE Digital Library.
