Making systems work together across real and virtual domains, large and small...
The management of infrastructure in complex systems is a challenge
that spans a multitude of disciplines. The move towards a future of
pervasive computing invites new ideas and novel mechanisms, not just
for technology, but also for management: as networks grow, large but
distributed computer systems are ever more apparent, not in monolithic
form but as societies of systems, cooperating towards common goals.
How shall we understand such networks and systems? Are
they manageable? Are they reliable and controllable? Are they
These are complex questions that inspire multi-disciplinary
responses, and these disciplines are brought together in AIMS 2007.
Whether your application is
self-managing autonomic mobile systems, sensor nets, tele-medicine,
online web services or perhaps you are designing the next paradigm for
peer to peer and ad hoc network commerce, join us in a discussion of
the leading ideas in the field and meet the next generation of thinker
in our PhD student symposium. Or perhaps you simply want to learn
more about some of the cutting-edge management topics in our short
tutorials which are included in the registration?
