Panel 2 Report: Autonomic Communication Roadmap

  • Mikhail I. Smirnov
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3854)


Situated and Autonomic Communication (AC) research roadmap needs to be addressed from a mixture of viewpoints. What are the market drivers for AC? Can we really automate SLA? Does it help AC to radically depart from TCP/IP? Do we know all new requirements for networking software, auto- and re-configuration? How autonomics shall transform network management? What’s the role of governance in autonomic control hierarchy, and do we know how hierarchy should emerge? These and similar questions were used to set the scene for the panel discussion on AC roadmap.
