Call for Tutorials

With more researchers and practitioners looking into studying and developing systems with self-* capabilities, the requirement for a deep understanding of fundamentals, theory, tools, processes, and approaches rises. The IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing and Self-Organizing Systems (ACSOS) is the prime conference for autonomic, self-adaptive, and self-organising systems and the leading forum to introduce, showcase, and disseminate to a wide audience to the tools, processes, and approaches you developed and improve understanding of fundamentals and theories.

ACSOS 2023 hereby solicits contributions for tutorials on tools, applications, processes and techniques in the area of autonomic computing, self-organisation, as well as related topics on autonomous and self-* behaviour. Tutorials are expected to follow the topics of the main Call for Papers and can either be deep technical tutorials (up to 4 hours) or shorter overview tutorials on foundational topics suitable for a broader audience. These shorter tutorials are planned to be part of the main program of ACSOS 2023.

Proposals for ACSOS tutorials should be submitted through EasyChair:
