Call For Papers

International Symposium on Multidisciplinary
Autonomous Networks and Systems (MANS 2009)

To be held in conjunction with The Joint International Conference on ATC and UIC 2009 (
Brisbane, Australia, 7-10 July, 2009

Nowadays, computing and network systems, such as peer-to-peer, wireless ad hoc, sensor networks, and general overlay networks, are heterogeneous, dynamic and distributed environments managed by multiple administrative authorities, shared by users with different and competing interests, or even autonomously provided by independent and rational users. The distinguished feature in autonomous networks and systems is that each player determines its behaviors autonomously. "Design for choice" is the fundamental principle of autonomous networks and systems.

As computing and network systems gradually become the fundamental infrastructure of our information society, many multidisciplinary research topics emerge to reflect the features of our economics and society. As we know, in the research and application of autonomous networks and systems, only technical viewpoint is far away from sufficient, which has been proved by the dilemma of Internet QoS research and applications. More important, multidisciplinary perspectives and approaches will shed new light on various related issues in autonomous networks and systems, and foster new applications. For example, a social network over wireless ad hoc network can provide proximity based social computing, and may be one of killer applications in wireless ad hoc networks. In this direction, biology, psychology, economics (e.g., game theory), social network, and many other research fields can provide many helpful hints for autonomous networks and systems research.
