The Ninth IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems (SASO 2015)
MIT, Cambridge, Massachusetts; 21-25 September 2015
Part of FAS* — Foundation and Applications of Self-* Computing Conferences
The International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (CAC 2015)
The 15th IEEE Peer-to-Peer Computing Conference (P2P 2015)
GREATLY REDUCED HOTEL RATES AVAILABLE TILL AUGUST 21!
The 2015 edition of the SASO conference series will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and hosted by MIT in the week of September 21 to September 25, 2015.
The aim of the Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing systems conference series (SASO) is to provide a forum for the foundations of a principled approach to engineering systems, networks and services based on self-adaptation and self-organization. The ninth edition of the SASO conference embraces the inter-disciplinarity and the scientific, empirical and application dimensions of self-* systems; it thus aims to attract participants with different backgrounds, to foster cross-pollination between research fields, and to expose and discuss innovative theories, design principles, frameworks, methodologies, tools, and applications.
The Early Registration deadline is September 4, 2015.
Deadline for reduced hotel rates is August 8, 2015.
Registration is available at:
A single registration fee includes access to the main conference, tutorials, workshops, and the doctoral symposium. Moreover, it includes a conference kit with electronic proceedings, all coffee breaks, lunches, free entrance to the Welcome Reception and Conference Dinner.
