 Dear Sirs,

please let me draw your attention to the following call for papers. 
Should you need any clarification or further information I will be glad 
to oblige.  IJARAS also 
hosts special issues 
addressing specific 
topics. Tentative guest editors are kindly invited to forward their 
proposals to me. Thank you very much.

 With kind regards,

   Vincenzo De Florio

Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts for possible

publication in the International Journal of Adaptive, Resilient, and

Autonomic Systems. The primary objective of IJARAS
 is to 

worldwide readership to high quality, novel, effective approaches to

design, develop, maintain, evaluate, and benchmark

adaptive-and-dependable systems, i.e. devices and services that are

built to sustain quality of service and quality of experience despite

the occurrence of potentially significant and sudden changes or

failures in their infrastructure and the surrounding environments.

IJARAS has multiple 
ranging from conceptual models

paradigms to technological aspects.

IJARAS builds upon a 
core mission 
statement and research 

The awareness of today's urgent need to structure our computer systems

as adaptive systems constantly re-optimizing in view of changes both

exogenous (environmental) and endogenous (pertaining to internal

assets). It introduces a problem, which implies a research direction

--- a thesis. The truth about this statement is drastically

reverberating through several domains, and in so doing several

seemingly unrelated research domains such as cross-layer adaptation

for mobile devices and business process re-engineering are regarded as

special cases of a larger theory of systems. This vision paves the way

to cross-fertilization; and through that, IJARAS
 aims at 
becoming a

powerful tool to steer novel ideas and inject new research directions

in this area.


Topics to be discussed in this journal include (but are not limited

to) the following:

   * Mechanisms, both general and special-purpose, to model, design,

     express, and develop adaptive, autonomic and resilient systems;

   * Analytical and simulation tools to measure a system's ability to

     withstand faults and optimally re-adjust to new environments;

   * Conceptual models and paradigms to express change tolerance;

   * Methods, models, and architectures to manage and express

     strategies and provisions for cross-layer adaptation;

   * Design-time / run-time methods and tools to identify and enforce

     optimal trade-offs between energy consumption, performance,

     safety, and security;

   * Scalable, maintainable, cost-effective provisions, located at all

     system levels, to achieve adaptability and dependability;

   * Resilience engineering;

   * Autonomic business process execution;

   * Adaptive service-oriented computing;

   * Evolutionary and embryogenic approaches to autonomic computing,

     resilience, and adaptive systems;

   * Recovery-oriented computing;

   * Methods focusing on optimizing quality of experience e.g. adaptive

     user interfaces;

   * Adaptive fault-tolerance;

   * Adaptive fault-masking;

   * Adaptive data integrity;

   * Autonomous and adaptive systems in robotics;

   * Adaptive and context-aware multimedia;

   * Personalization;

   * Adaptive data mining;

   * Adaptive fault models;

   * Adaptive system models;

   * Adaptive routing;

   * Autonomic applications;

   * Architecture-based adaptation;

   * Self-* systems.


Prospective authors should note that only original and previously

unpublished articles will be considered. INTERESTED AUTHORS MUST
