|Dagstuhl Seminar on Autonomic Management of Networks and Services|
World Experts meet to address the management challenges in autonomic networks and services.
Access the seminar site and data hereDuring the past years, numerous novel architectures were developed for communication networks, the networked services or applications running of the core infrastructure, and its related protocol specifications. There are several activities undertaken for designing and developing novel network architectures that enable flexible, dynamic, and fully autonomic formation of network nodes as well as whole networks. It will allow dynamic adaptation and re-organization of the network according to the working, economical and social needs of the users. This is expected to be especially challenging in a mobile context where new resources become available dynamically, administrative domains change frequently, and the economic models may vary.
Assuming these new types of network architectures will emerge, the operation and management of those types of networks must undergo dramatic change compared to today's way of operating networks. Additionally, those networks will change the way services are deployed and delivered to users in a much more dynamic, personalized, location-aware way.
The goal of the seminar is to bring together researchers and engineers experienced in different emerging networking technologies, service technologies, and management technologies to discuss the future direction of those networks and specifically the operation and management issues concerned with these networks and services The seminar will allow participants to advance issues associated with autonomic behavior in networking and services.
