COMS (Situated and Autonomic Communications)


Carlos Baquero


This area deals with new paradigms for the design of communication/networking systems where individual components and subsystems react and adapt to their local context and exhibit properties of autonomy, self-organization, wide distribution, technology independence and scale-free.

This encompasses a paradigm shift from architected networks to emergent aggregation of heterogeneous network capacity. Such shift is expected to induce cross-layer approaches, redefining traditional protocol stacking models.


The design of self-organizing networks involves the study of interaction properties among individual units that react to each other and to the environment.

This involves both a multi-disciplinary approach at the theoretical level (new network information theory, random graphs, complexity theory, genetic algorithms, game theory, ... ) and focus on security, coordination, sensoring, evolvability, stability and resilience.
