Awareness: Self-Awareness in Autonomic Systems
Sunny Bains
PerAda Magazine was part of a project that is now finished, but you can see related content on the new magazine for the 'Awareness: Self-Awareness in Autonomic Systems' Future and Emerging Technologies Proactive Initiative, funded by the European Commission under FP7.

Morphogenetic engineering weds bio self-organization to human-designed systems
René Doursat
Deeper understanding of complex biological and engineered systems should lead to the emergence of new hybrid designs that provide the best of both worlds.

Biological principles and sensor networks: self-organized operation and control
Falko Dressler
Nature provides a number of model solutions to the problem of managing and controlling networked, embedded systems, from synchronizing distributed nodes to detecting misbehaviour.

Evolving virtual embryogenesis to structure complex controllers
Ronald Thenius, Michael Bodi, Thomas Schmickl, and Karl Crailsheim
Virtual evolution helps increase the efficiency of classical controller paradigms by implementing substructures with different tasks and capabilities.

Simplicity in search technology is the ultimate sophistication
Dag Johansen and Bjørn Olstad
Development of next-generation, large-scale information-access systems requires a broad range of computer-science advancements in computing infrastructure and algorithmic user experiences.

The secret life of the immune system: inspiring pervasive systems
Emma Hart
The immune system performs more than simply defence and exploiting its additional functionality can lead to the design of better pervasive adaptive systems.

Self-organizing ants find new paths to scalability
Robert Tolksdorf
The principles of locality and decentralization found in nature could be the key to managing Web data traffic, as shown in initial experiments with a semantic store.

Developing user-responsive mobile applications
Klaus Herrmann and Kurt Rothermel
A novel workflow-based approach may one day enable adaptive programs to unobtrusively assist people with everyday tasks.

Engineering beauty with the Beasties on wireless sensor networks
Julie A. McCann
The Tesserae Autonomic Architecture combines tiny computers, a component description language, and a protocol to support software engineering and self-management in sensor networks.
