    Given the scale and complexity of today's information systems, it's increasingly important that they handle system management problems and tasks themselves--intelligently and autonomously. This special issue focuses on implementing self-management in a variety of distributed systems by observing the self-managing systems that surround us: multicellular organisms, social insects, market economies, ...

    The study of self-organizing systems has now reached the tool-building phase, in which a new discipline of self-managing systems engineering can begin to emerge. The next step is to refine the principles of self-organization into a system of composable parts suitable for engineering - much as components such as capacitors, transistors, and resistors capture electromagnetism principles for electron...

    We've described a scheme by which a swarm of robots can automatically assemble solid structures of square building blocks in two dimensions according to a high-level user-specified design. We discuss the use of extended stigmergy: augmenting the basic notion of stigmergy by increasing the capabilities of environmental elements. In this construction setting, the elements are the building blocks, th... View full abstract»

    Coordination between nodes in open distributed computer systems is a general problem that's becoming increasingly relevant as massive peer-to-peer (P2P) systems are being deployed on the Internet. A major subproblem is establishing and maintaining cooperation between nodes. To solve this problem, we created a simple algorithm, SLACER (a selfish link-based adaptation for cooperation excluding rewir... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we conducted a comparative study of how social organization takes place in a wasp colony and OSS developer communities. Both these systems display similar global organization patterns, such as hierarchies and clear labor divisions. As our analysis shows, both systems also define interacting agent networks with similar common features that reflect limited information sharing among ag... View full abstract»

    Customer-driven sensor management advocates applying e-commerce concepts and advances to sensor management. In e-commerce, customer wants essentially drive the production process. Sensor management has traditionally followed a much less capitalistic process, producing information "goods" based on predefined system goals and priorities. We explore here some of the possibilities and advantages of in... View full abstract»

    No generally accepted principles and guidelines currently exist to help engineers design local interaction mechanisms that result in a desired global behavior. However, several communities have developed ways of approaching this problem in the context of niched application areas. Because the ideas underlying these approaches are often obscured or underemphasized in technical papers, the authors re... View full abstract»

    In an effort to focus on tractable problems, computational natural language understanding systems have typically addressed language phenomena that are amenable to combinatorial approaches using static and stereotypical semantic representations. Although such approaches are adequate for much of language, they're not easily extended to capture humans' more creative language interpretation capacities... View full abstract»

    On the Web, where information is vast and users are numerous, personalization that aims to offer suitable information to suitable users is essential. To sustain their competitive advantage, portal sites attract many users' attention by supplying personalized content. Most Web content providers offer all users the same content, failing to satisfy individual users' needs. Providers should be able to... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we've developed a novel approach to knowledge acquisition based on rough set theory and principal component analysis. A PCA-based quantitative index measures the relative importance of different condition attributes among the state space constructed by all condition attributes. The index strengthens the attribute and attribute-value reductions while maintaining the decision table's ... View full abstract»

    Agent technology provides industrial-applications developers with new abstractions for distributed-system development, new methodological tools, and a set of algorithms for creating autonomous, collaborative systems. Over the past few years, a number of industrial applications have deployed agents. However, a substantial gap still exists between the cutting-edge research carried out mainly in univ...
