Description & Coverage
Description:

As systems become more prevalent and more complex, resilient adaptive systems are crucial when systems are needed in environments where change is the rule rather than the exception.

Technological Innovations in Adaptive and Dependable Systems: Advancing Models and Concepts provides high quality, effective approaches to design, develop, maintain, evaluate, and benchmark adaptive and dependable systems that are built to sustain quality of service and experience despite the occurrence of potentially significant and sudden changes or failures in their infrastructure and surrounding environments. Providing academicians, practitioners, and researchers with insight, this book contains useful software and hardware aspects, conceptual models, applied and theoretical approaches, paradigms, and other technological innovations.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive and context-aware multimedia
  • Adaptive System Functions
  • Architecture-based adaptation
  • Autonomic applications
  • Autonomic business process execution
  • Autonomous and adaptive systems in robotics
  • Personalization
  • Recovery-oriented computing
  • Resilience engineering
  • Scalable adaptability and dependability
Reviews & Statements

"[The] aim of this book is to provide widespread access to this treasure's trove of knowledge on advancing concepts and models in adaptive and dependable systems also allowing their authors to update and augment their contributions. The latter are also presented here in a structured way by dividing the book in several chapters each of which is devoted to one facet of this fascinating multi-dimensional and multidisciplinary problem space.:

Editor/Author Biographies
Vincenzo De Florio obtained his “Laurea in Scienze dell’Informazione” (MSc, computer science) from the University of Bari (Italy, 1987) and his PhD in engineering from the University of Leuven (Belgium, 2000). He was researcher for eight years and part-time professor for three years with the University of Leuven. He is currently a researcher with the Performance Analysis of Telecommunication Systems (PATS) research group at the University of Antwerp, where he is responsible for PATS’ branch on adaptive and dependable systems. Vincenzo De Florio is also a researcher of IBBT, the Flemish Interdisciplinary Institute for BroadBand Technology. He published about seventy reviewed research papers, fifteen of which in international research journals, and the book “Application-layer fault-tolerance protocols”, edited by IGI Global. He is co-chair of workshop ADAMUS (the third Workshop on Adaptive and DependAble Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems, http://www.adamus.ua.ac.be), and editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Adaptive, Resilient and Autonomic Systems.
