User-centric adaptation analysis of multi-tenant services
García-Galán J., Pasquale L., Trinidad P., Ruiz-Cortés A. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 10(4): 1-26, 2016. Type: Article
A method to arrive at configuration consensus in a multitenant shared-service cloud environment is presented in this paper. Section 1 discusses the multitenant cloud. The authors are interested in such systems where each member of the user communi...

Model-driven engineering of self-adaptive software with EUREMA
Vogel T., Giese H. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 8(4): 1-33, 2014. Type: Article
Self-adaptive software is a very active field of research. Many projects (also sponsored by the European Commission (EC)) have been funded with the goal of providing techniques and tools for self-adaptive (and autonomous) programs. This paper is a...

Adaptive epidemic dynamics in networks: thresholds and control
Xu S., Lu W., Xu L., Zhan Z. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 8(4): 1-19, 2014. Type: Article
The use of biological models (for example, epidemic models) to study the spreading of network-related computer viruses is not new. However, most of these biological models assume the homogeneity of nodes in a network, that is, all nodes are equall...

Conditional safety certification of open adaptive systems
Schneider D., Trapp M. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 8(2): 1-20, 2013. Type: Article
Safety is an important issue in the use of computer systems, and particularly in safety-critical applications. However, it is generally investigated in static systems, and therefore the resulting solutions do not function as well in the face of dy...

Decentralized approaches for self-adaptation in agent organizations
Kota R., Gibbins N., Jennings N. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 7(1): 1-28, 2012. Type: Article
Self-adapting agent organizations have been promoted as a useful and suitable paradigm for open and dynamic agent systems. This paper argues for a flexible approach that provides a meta-reasoning component to agents using localized adaptation rath...

The XtreemOS resource selection service
Stratan C., Sacha J., Napper J., Costa P., Pierre G. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 7(4): 1-32, 2012. Type: Article
This paper presents a resource selection approach in large-scale distributed systems. The approach is decentralized and self-adapting, and aims to address scalability and resiliency in the face of changes in the number of attributes (representing ...

Push- and pull-based epidemic spreading in networks: thresholds and deeper insights
Xu S., Lu W., Xu L. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 7(3): 1-26, 2012. Type: Article
The authors of this paper first analyze recent work on the epidemic spreading of malware in arbitrary networks, noting that all previous studies only considered push-based infection (where infected hosts actively infect neighbors). They extend thi...

Self-organizing synchronization with inhibitory-coupled oscillators: convergence and robustness
Klinglmayr J., Bettstetter C. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 7(3): 1-23, 2012. Type: Article
This paper introduces a synchronization technique inspired by the fascinating natural phenomenon of spontaneous synchronization. The authors cover a wide range of observed things that sync up spontaneously, ranging from male Asian fireflies with s...

Network service description and discovery for high-performance ubiquitous and pervasive grids
Duan Q. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 6(1): 1-17, 2011. Type: Article
The premise for grid computing is resource sharing with the intensive use of Internet protocols. The architecture for grid computing has leveraged the benefits of various evolutionary architectures, including client-service and distributed archite...

Dynamic user task composition based on user preferences
Mukhtar H., Belaïd D., Bernard G. ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems 6(1): 1-17, 2011. Type: Article
In pervasive environments, several devices are present at any given time; many of these perform the same, or similar, tasks. Thus, when a user wants to perform a task, he can choose the device best suited for it. Though this may seem to be an adva...
