AIMS and SCOPE
Nowadays, autonomous and autonomic software-based systems are merging as a hot research topic. Autonomous software are self-contained and capable of making independent decisions, and taking actions to satisfy internal goals based upon their perceived environment.
To be autonomic, a system must know itself as well as its boundaries and environment, configure and reconfigure itself, continually optimize itself, recover or heal from malfunction, protect itself, and functions in a heterogeneous world—while keeping its complexity hidden from the user.
Therefore, the inherent properties and complexity of autonomous software pose new challenges throughout software lifecycle. For examples, architects and designers need new or specific architectural and design models and languages supporting design and implementation of autonomous software. Middleware and languages must integrate adequate properties facilitating autonomous software implementation. In addition, as autonomous software operate always in critical environment, it is necessary to be able to evaluate effects generated by software actions.
ASBS’2008 is an IEEE Computer Society sponsored workshop covering a wide range of topics in Autonomous & Autonomic Software-based systems. ASBS’2008 in conjunction with CSTST’2008 provides an excellent opportunity for researchers to exchange leading-edge research in the dynamic field of Autonomous & Autonomic systems in general.
The proceedings of the Workshop will be published by IEEE Computer Society and fully index by IEEE Xplore. Extended version of selected papers will be considered for publication in journal of Digital Information Management (JDIM) (http://www.dirf.org/jdim/publisher.htm).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Autonomous & Autonomic system design and development
• Engineering of autonomous & autonomic systems
• Autonomous & Autonomic system management, paradigms and methodologies
