full name / name of organization: 
The First International Workshop on Autonomic Networks and Services (ANS2010)

The International Workshop on
Autonomic Networks and Services (ANS2010)
held in conjunction with The 7th International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing (ATC2010), Xi'an, China, October 26-29, 2010

The researchers in the ubiquitous systems domain are producing valuable solutions in order to make the vision of Mark Weiser a reality. This innovation brings along with the fruitful benefits some problems such as ever growing network size and functional complexity, the huge maintenance costs, and irresolvable bugs and congestion problems. The complexity has also crept into the middleware part of the networks and is increasing that affects the performance of services running on top of the network. The Autonomic Computing provides many creative solutions in the form of self management that is cheaper, scalable, and trustworthy for network management and services.

In the International Workshop on Autonomic Networks and Services (ANS2010) we discuss the research and development answers to autonomic networks, their novel application, multiuser/group mobility solutions, context related issues, naming services for wireless sensor networks, autonomic repository adaptation for social networks, applications of autonomic computing in web 3.0 and Next Generation Networks (NGN) paradigms, Autonomic Network Management, autonomic information lifecycle management, data synchronization among various ubiquitous servers, cross disciplinary applications of autonomic computing, novel autonomic services, service lifecycle management, etc.

The technical program of ANS2010 will consist of invited talks, paper presentations, and panel discussions. Topics include but are not limited to the following

Autonomic Networks: Theory and Models
Autonomic Computing Theories, Inter relationship of Self Management Functions, Pricing, accounting, and billing for ubiquitous network management services
Autonomic Computing: Architectures and Systems
Autonomic Network Management Architectures, Middleware for the management and seamless mobility of mobile multimedia services, Sensor Naming Service (SNS) based solutions for wireless sensor networks
