A major technical and societal challenge for the immediate future is the
stabilisation of production grids. Control, maintenance and
optimization of these complex systems is a significant operational

Autonomic Computing has emerged as a specific scientific domain, with
the strong involvement of industry. The area is highly relevant to grid
systems at a time when production grids have become critical scientific
infrastructures and must move to sustainable models. Considering the
volume and structure of the manpower dedicated to the day-to-day
operations, self-optimization, self-healing and self-configuration could
provide immediate benefits.

At the core of the autonomic computing is the fact that high-level goals
should be exposed by the middleware and should be easily tuned by users
and system administrators. The workshop will contribute to building
bridges between grid researchers on one hand and those in the autonomic
computing community
on the other. The focus of the workshop is to
identify key scientific challenges related to the management and
evolution of grids as a specific category of complex large-scale
systems. The goal of the workshop is to promote community wide
discussion of, and collaboration on potentially high-impact ideas that
will influence and foster continued research in improving the
manageability and reliability of grids.

The workshop will feature invited presentations from major grid projects
and Autonomic Computing scientists as well as regular papers and
posters. The format will leave ample time for discussion


Full papers (a maximum of 8 pages in length) and posters (2 pages) are
invited. All manuscripts will be reviewed and judged on merits including
correctness, originality, quality of presentation, and relevance to the
workshop themes. Please see the conference web site for more information
on the submission process. It is expected that the proceedings will be
published by ACM.


At least one author of each accepted submission must attend the
workshop. Registration fee to the workshop is in addition to the ICAC
2009 conference fee.
