Self-organizing networks are often built with explicit protocols (e.g.,
DHCP). Organization is a primary goal and so it is easy to recognize
these systems. Self-adaptive networks often have their adaptation
mechanism built into a protocol as a component. Common examples include
congestion avoidance in TCP and collision detection in Ethernet.
Through this workshop, we plan to explore the ways in which
self-adaptation is currently used in networking (often without being
recognized) and how ideas from the self-* community can be applied to
perform these functions in a principled approach.
This workshop will bring together researchers from different areas such as wireless networking, quality-of-service, networking applications, intelligent networking, and self adaptive technology to gain broad insights into specific research issues related to self-adaptive networking and to foster discussions about ongoing research, establish directions for future research and collaborations, and identify best practices for applying self-adaptive techniques to networking.
