Call for Papers
2009 International Symposium of Multidisciplinary Autonomous Networks and Systems (MANS 2009)
in Conjunction with the Joint International Conferences ATC 2009 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.

Papers that illustrate new ideas, innovative research results, or survey works are solicited. Topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Innovative models for autonomous networks and systems
- Evolutionary principles of autonomous networks and systems
- Bio-inspired information and communication systems
- Economic concepts and mechanisms, and game theory
- Emotional, and psychological computing
- Complex adaptive systems, and self-organized systems
- Web service, grid, cloud and transparent computing
- Trust and reputation models and management
- Privacy, security, ethics, culture, and anonymity issues
- Mobile, Peer-to-Peer social networks and wireless ad hoc networks
- Sensor networks and social sensing
- Social search, and collaborative computing
- Agents, and massive agents systems
- Service science, management and engineering
- u-Things, u-Science and u-Enginneering
- Intelligent transportation systems, and safety-critical systems
- Empirical studies of multidisciplinary approaches

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three PC members or external reviewers. The proceedings of the symposium will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press (Indexed by EI).
