The objective of the Autonomic Applications Workshop is to establish a forum to investigate the research issues and enabling technologies toward the convergence of biological, technological and information systems (called Autonomic Computing). Autonomic computing research will enable the design of the next generation of applications that are capable of managing, controlling and optimizing themselves.  This workshop will focus on the research issues and challenges facing the development of autonomic applications that are self-defining, self-configuring, self-healing, self-optimizing, self-anticipating, contextually aware of their environments, and open. Workshop topics will include (but not be limited to):


- Autonomic, dynamic data-driven, pervasive applications

- Autonomic and pervasive Grids

- Programming paradigms applications development support for active and

  autonomous environments

- Composition and interaction models of autonomic and pervasive applications

- Bio-system analogs in autonomic computing

-  Integrative theories and frameworks for autonomic computing

- Multi-agent systems

- Policy engines and deductive shells

- Autonomic/Peer-to-peer/Context-aware middleware services

- Security services and models for autonomous applications and

  active environments

- Runtime and management issues in autonomic and active environments

- Multi-resolution modeling for scalable applications



Papers will be published in a joint HiPC workshop proceeding by Phoenix Publishers. Journal-length versions of the workshop papers will appear in a special issue of Cluster Computing, The Journal of Networks, Software Tools and Applications on Autonomic Applications.
