What is Autonomic Computing?

Autonomic Computing is a new paradigm in computing systems design to describe systems that are self-configuring, self-healing, self-optimizing, and self-protecting. Autonomic computing promises to solve the management problem of today's complex computing systems by embedding the management of such systems inside the systems themselves, freeing users from potentially overwhelming details. The proposed research program is centered on several key issues in autonomic computing such as self-management in mobile computing, autonomic anomaly and misuse detection and response, adaptive network traffic monitoring and management, autonomic storage systems, autonomic security, and testing of autonomic computing systems, where the investigators have research experience.
