The moment IFIP Workshop on Autonomic communique (WAC 2005) came about on October 2–5, 2005, in Athens, Greece. the former (and first) version of WAC happened in Berlin in 2004 and its subsequent (and 3rd) variation in Paris in 2006. The workshop used to be geared up through the nationwide and Kapodistrian collage of Athens and was once supported through the EU-funded IST-FET Autonomic conversation Coordination motion (ACCA – IST-6475). extra help used to be supplied via the EU-funded IST community of Excellence E-NEXT (IST-506869). ultimately, IFIP TC6 supplied clinical sponsorship via operating teams IFIP WG6. 6 (Management of Networks and disbursed structures) and IFIP WG6. three (Performance of verbal exchange Systems). The workshop used to be prepared at a time whilst the – but to be good outlined – box of autonomic communique (AC) is attracting the curiosity of either the clinical group and the study investment organisations. The latter is manifested, on one hand, through the varied contemporary correct learn exploratory boards, workshop panels, initial forward-looking place papers, examine outlooks and frameworks and, nevertheless, through the dedication of the FET software of the eu fee in Europe to investment long term learn during this quarter for the following 4 years. for that reason, the second one version of WAC used to be hugely exploratory and incorporated a pleasant mixture of technical paintings addressing a few already pointed out difficulties and well-articulated rules at the course this box should still take and the elemental difficulties whose answer may let autonomicity.

Example text

Definition 5 (Clone-and-mutate mating policy). Let us consider two nodes with respective fitness level I1 and I2 that get into mutual communication range. Let us assume, without any loss of generality, I1 ≥ I2 (if I1 = I2 = 1 no mating takes place). If I1 = I2 , we assume node 2 to perform the mating. Then user 2 downloads user 1’s service. Mutation is then performed on the new vector v 2 , by changing each digit independently with a given probability p (called the mutation probability). User 1 keeps its service unchanged.

Carreras et al. introduction of novel services and leading to a deep change in people/technology interactions [1]. The term “autonomic” comes from the computing field [2], where it is used to define systems which are inherently self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-healing and self-protecting. As the term itself suggests, an autonomic system should show the same properties of the human nervous system, which controls in an “unconscious” way routine tasks such as blood pressure, hormone levels, heart and breathing rate.
