Autonomic Communication: Coordination Action

Objective

The ACCA will coordinate and integrate a harmonised R&D programme targeting new proactive initiative within FET with the focus on self-organisation of a network element's autonomic behaviour exposed by innovative (cross-layer optimised, context-aware, and securely programmable) protocol stack in its interaction with numerous often-dynamic network communities. The goals are to understand how desired element's behaviours are learned, influenced or changed, and how, in turn, these affect other elements, groups and network. Autonomic communication is centred around networking self ware - a novel approach to perform network control, management, middle box communication, service creation, etc. based on universal and fine-grained multiplexing of numerous policies, rules and events that is done autonomously but facilitates desired behaviour of groups of network elements. The R&D programme will identify sound approaches to develop autonomic communication spanning any transport, network and link technology and assisting true ambient intelligence. Relevant knowledge will be accumulated, evaluated and disseminated to both industry and research communities in a form of requirements analysis, white papers on architectural principles, problem statements, roadmaps, impact reports, etc. presented at targeted events. The ACCA will build an autonomic communication R&D community prepared to undertake practical steps in realising the R&D programme. Recognising that ACCA aims to solve the problem of communication infrastructure evolvability through self-organisation and that this research requires a broad interdisciplinary approach the Action will explore concurrently multiple paradigm spaces addressing the problem from the viewpoints of software and hardware developments, radio technology advances, design methodology, control theory, formal methods, distributed systems research, etc.
