About FeBID

FeBID is a series of workshops. In 2011, FeBID is associated with The 8th International Conference on Autonomic Computing (ICAC 2011). The workshop aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, system administrators, system programmers, and others interested in the latest advances in the control of computer systems and networks. The focus of the workshop is on novel, practical, systems-oriented work.

Topics of Interest

FeBID 2011 solicits original research papers on applying feedback control and mathematical optimization techniques to analyzing and designing computing systems, networks, and services, such as those in data centers, enterprise systems, real-time systems, embedded systems, sensor networks, and cyber-physical systems. The workshop offers a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners to discuss recent and innovative results in the field. It is a forum to exchange ideas and experiences on practical control system design and implementation, and to identify future directions and challenges in aligning feedback control techniques with traditional performance analysis, modeling, and simulation.

FeBID seeks contributions on all aspects of system control. Topics of interest include, but are not limited, to the following:

FeBID also seeks:

FeBID explicitly encourages members of the systems community to explore leading-edge topics and ideas before they are presented at a major conference. Two formats of contributions are welcome: regular papers (6 pages), and position papers (2 pages).


There will be NO copyright-transferred formal proceedings for the workshop papers. Top selected papers will be invited for resubmission to a special issue of a reputed journal (to be determined soon).
