Welcome to Autonomic Communication - a new communication paradigm for evolving Internet

The 2nd IFIP TC6 International Workshop on Autonomic Communication (WAC 2005)
Oct. 3-5, 2005, Vouliagmeni, Athens, Greece

      WAC site


Scope and Topics



The Second International workshop on Autonomic Communication (WAC 2005) will have as its main theme Autonomic Communication Principles. The objective is to explore synergies between related research initiatives and recent achievements within many disciplines in order to enable the design creativity that will fuel the next round  of the Internet evolution.
   The insights and inspirations are also to be found, analysed and understood  in the Internet itself, in its on-going upgrade to the global communication infrastructure supporting true mobility via wireless access, flexible personalisation of services, high resilience and security of the infrastructure, as well as support for GRIDs in various application fields and interworking with non-conventional (e.g. ad hoc, peer to peer and sensor) networks.

   A common understanding that emerged recently in both the Industry and the Academia is that the research frontier these days is in re-designing of the Internet control plane aiming at reducing the management overhead and eliminating the need for manual configurations altogether.

  The workshop is organised by the Autonomic Communication Coordination Action (ACCA) of the IST FP6 FET program and is technically co-sponsored by IFIP Technical Committee 6 (Communication Systems), WG 6.6 "Management of Networks and Distributed System" and WG 6.3 "Performance of Communication Systems".

   WAC2005 Post-worshop Proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS series.Publication reference: "Autonomic Communication", ed: Ioannis Stavrakakis(National & Kapodistrian University of Athens), Michael Smirnov(Fraunhofer-FOKUS), Lecture Notes in Computer Science, LNCS, Vol. 3854, Springer-Verlag.
