ARCS 2007 will cover a broad range of research topics related to basic technology, architecture, and application of computing systems. Organic Computing (Autonomic or Proactive Computing) may help to manage the increasing complexity of computing systems. ARCS 2007 is intended for researchers, R&D engineers, and practitioners. The key topics of this conference are:

Emergent Behaviour of Computing Systems

Techniques for self-monitoring, self-healing, self-organizing, self-protecting etc, systems, measurement of emergent properties, context- and location-aware computing, sensor networks, middleware services, distributed agents, specific self-managing components, ...

Network Computing

Peer-to-Peer computing, network management, trust and reputation, middleware services, grid computing, agents for resource management, queuing systems, network security, ...

Pervasive, Ubiquitous, Nomadic, Mobile, and Wireless Computing

Standards and protocols, personal devices computing, security and authentication, ...

Operating Systems

Novel kernel-level mechanisms, internet-awareness, real-time and embedded control, active network operating systems, security management, standards for sensor- and actuator-interfaces, ...

Dependable Computing
