Call for Workshops

The workshops at ACSOS 2023 provide a forum for groups of 20-50 participants to present and discuss novel research ideas on autonomic computing, self-adaptive, and self-organizing systems. Workshops can take on a number of forms, including but not limited to being organized around emerging research areas, challenging problems, and industrial applications.

Important Dates

Workshop proposal submission deadline:  March 15th, 2023
Workshop acceptance notification:       April 7th, 2023
Workshop call for papers online:        April 28th, 2023
Workshops dates:                        TBD (expected Sept. 25th and Sept. 29th, 2023)

We will have an ongoing evaluation of the proposals after their submissions (i.e., workshops might be accepted before the acceptance notification).

Workshop Proposals

Proposals for workshops should be organized as a preliminary call for papers or call for participation, depending on the intended format of the workshop, with a maximum of two pages and contain the following information:

  • Title of the workshop.
  • A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop goals, the technical issues that it will address, and the relevance of the workshop to the main conference. * The names, affiliations, phone numbers, and email addresses of the proposed workshop organizing committee. We strongly encourage the organizing committee to consist of at least two people coming from multiple institutions knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed.
  • The primary email address(es) for contacting the organizing committee.
  • Expected duration of the workshop (half or full day).
  • A brief description of the workshop format.
  • The workshop deadlines, both internal and external, aligned with the ACSOS timeline.
  • Description of the paper review process and acceptance standards in order to keep the workshop high in quality. Accepted workshop papers will be published in the proceedings and submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore. Papers must thus be in the same format as the conference proceedings and may not be more than 6 pages in length. Workshop organizers must ensure that suitable quality measures have been taken. All papers must be reviewed by an International Technical Program Committee with a minimum of 3 reviews per paper.
  • List of potential program committee members, including their titles and affiliations.
  • List of potential invited speakers, panelists, or disputants.

Please also provide the following information (not restricted to the two pages for the above proposal):

  • Information about previous offerings of the proposed workshop: when and where it has been offered in the past, names and affiliations of organizers, number of submissions, acceptances, and number of registered and present attendees. Note: This is for workshops that are in their second edition or later.
  • Expected number of submissions, accepted papers, and attendees (for all workshops).

For new workshops, which would be in the first edition if accepted, please also provide the following (not restricted to the two pages for the above proposal):

  • List of researchers/practitioners who would be likely to submit a paper to the workshop.

Workshop proposals should be sent as a pdf via email to
