Autonomic Computing

Vol. 42, No. 1, 2003

Order No. G321-0148

The development of autonomic computing will make systems capable of self-configuring, self-healing, self-optimizing, and self-protecting, analogous to the abilities of living organisms with autonomic nervous systems. In this issue, an overview, 15 papers, and the Technical Forum present concepts, directions, and current work in the evolving research on autonomic computing for such areas as systems architecture, server infrastructure, systems management, security, service, applications, and the effect on users. This issue is an initial contribution to the creation of a body of literature on autonomic computing.
