CALL FOR PAPERS

"Distributed Estimation and Control for General Systems"
A Special Issue of International Journal of General
Systems

Networked systems arise as natural models in many areas of engineering and sciences with examples including sensor
networks, autonomous unmanned vehicles, biological networks, and animal cooperative aggregation and flocking.
In addition to the universal attributes of the complex networks, networked systems do possess their own
characteristics due mainly to the large number of simple systems interacting through a communication medium. The
past decade has seen successful applications of network systems in many practical areas ranging from military
sensing, physical security, air traffic control, to distributed robotics and industrial and manufacturing
automation. Accordingly, theoretical research on large-scale networked systems has gained an increasing
attention from multiple disciplines including engineering, computer science and mathematics. Lying in the core part
of the area are the distributed estimation and control problems that have recently been attracting growing
research interests.
 
For distributed estimation and control problems, the networked system is comprised of a large number of simple
systems (i.e. nodes) with computing and wireless communication capabilities, where the nodes are spatially
distributed to form an ad hoc network and every node has its own notion of time. Each individual node in the
network locally estimates/controls the system state from not only its own measurement but also its neighbouring
nodes' measurements according to the given topology. The possible complexity of such a topology poses many
challenges for scientists and engineers, and it is difficult to analyse these networks thoroughly with
currently available estimation/control algorithms. Therefore, there is an urgent need to research on into
modelling, analysis of behaviours, systems theory, and estimation/control algorithms in networked systems.
Numerous fundamental questions have been addressed about the connections between network topology and dynamic
properties including stability, controllability, robustness and other observable aspects. However, some
major problems have not been fully investigated, such as the behaviour of stability, estimation and control for
networks with incomplete/imperfect/stochastic topology, as well as their applications in, for example, distributed
signal processing.
 
This special issue aims to bring together the latest approaches to understanding, estimating and control
complex systems in a distributed way.
 
Topics include, but are not limited to the following
aspects of sensor networks:
• Coordinated control and estimation over networks;
• Multivehicle systems, flocking, and consensus;
• Control under communication constraints: quantization,
limited bandwidth, erasure channels;
• Decentralized algorithms for computation over sensor
networks;
• Randomized, gossip, and message passing algorithms;
• Distributed and decentralized signal processing;
• Distributed and cooperative optimization;
• Cooperation in the presence of adversaries;
• Networked games;
• Robust coordination under malicious attacks.

* Overview
ICAC is the leading conference on autonomic computing techniques, foundations, and applications. Large-scale
systems of all types, such as data centers, compute clouds, sensor networks, embedded or pervasive
environments, and the Internet of Things are becoming increasingly complex and burdensome for people to manage.
Autonomic computing systems reduce this burden by managing their own behavior in accordance with high-level goals. In
autonomic systems, resources and applications are managed to maximize performance and minimize cost, while
maintaining predictable and reliable behavior in the face of varying workloads, failures, and malicious threats.
Achieving self-management requires and motivates research that spans a wide variety of scientific and engineering
disciplines, includingdistributed systems, artificial intelligence, machine learning, modeling, control theory, optimization,
planning, decision theory, user interface design, data  management, software engineering, emergent behavior, and
bio-inspired computing. ICAC brings together researchers and practitioners from disparate disciplines, application
domains, and perspectives, enabling them to discover and share underlying commonalities in their approaches to
making resources, applications, and systems more autonomic.

* Topics
Papers are solicited from all areas of autonomic computing, including (but not limited to):
- Self-managing components, such as compute, storage, and networking devices; embedded and real-time systems; and
mobile devices such as smart phones- AI and mathematical techniques, such as machine
learning, control theory, operations research, probability and stochastic processes, queuing theory, rule-based
systems, and bio-inspired techniques, and their use in autonomic computing
- End-to-end design and implementations for management of resources, workloads, availability, performance,
reliability, power/cooling, security, and others- Monitoring systems that can scale to large environments
- Hypervisors, operating systems, middleware, or application support for autonomic computing
- Novel human interfaces for monitoring and controlling autonomic systems
- Goal specification and policies, including specification and modeling of service-level agreements, behavior
enforcement, IT governance, and business-driven IT management
- Frameworks, principles, architectures, and toolkits, from software engineering practices and experimental
methodologies to agent-based techniques- Automated management techniques for emerging
applications, systems, and platforms, including social networks, Big Data systems, multi-core processors, and
Internet of Things
- Fundamental science and theory of self-managing systems for understanding, controlling, or exploiting emergent
system behaviors to enforce autonomic properties- Applications of autonomic computing and experiences with
prototyped or deployed systems solving real-world problems in science, engineering, business, or society
- Papers will be judged on originality, significance, interest, correctness, clarity and relevance to the
broader community. Papers are strongly encouraged to report on experiences, measurements, user studies, and
provide an appropriate quantitative evaluation if at all possible.

* Paper Submissions
Full papers (a maximum of 10 pages) and short papers (4 pages) are invited on a wide variety of topics relating to
autonomic computing. Both full and short papers should be typeset in two-column format in 10 point type on 12 point
(single-spaced) leading, with the text block being no more than 6.5" wide by 9" deep. Both kinds of papers should be
submitted via the Web submission form at
https://papers.usenix.org/hotcrp/icac13/.
Complete formatting and submission instructions can be found at
https://www.usenix.org/conference/icac13/requirements-icac-13-authors.
Authors are also encouraged to submit a poster or demo that summarizes or augments their paper (see below).

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or
plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals,
prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them. See the USENIX Conference
Submissions Policy for details. Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. If
you are uncertain whether your submission meets USENIX's guidelines, please contact the program co-chairs,
icac13chairs@usenix.org, or the USENIX office, submissionspolicy@usenix.org.
At least one author of an accepted paper is expected to present the paper in person at the conference. The
accepted papers will be available online to registered attendees before the conference and will also appear in
proceedings distributed via USB drives at the conference. If your accepted paper should not be published prior to
the event, please notify production@usenix.org. The papers will be available online to everyone beginning on June 26,
2013. Accepted submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication on the USENIX ICAC '13 Web site;
rejected submissions will be permanently treated as confidential.

* Special Tracks
To facilitate community collaboration and exchange of ideas in emergent technological areas, ICAC '13 will host
two special tracks, each of which will be reviewed by its own subcommittee. Each track has its own schedule for
submissions; please review the respective schedules carefully. More information regarding the special track on
Self-Aware Internet of Things is available at https://www.usenix.org/conference/icac13/self-iot-self-aware-internet-things.
