Pervasive Computing in Practice!

Autonomic Computing

This web site comes with the book "Autonomic Computing: Principles, Design and Implementation” authored by Philippe Lalanda, Julie McCann and Ada Diaconescu.

Pr. Philippe Lalanda is a professor of software engineering at the Joseph Fourier University, Grenoble, France.

Dr. Julie A. McCann is a Reader in Computer Systems at Imperial College London, UK.

Dr. Ada Diaconescu is a lecturer (Maître de conférences) in the Department of Computing and Networks at Télécom ParisTech, France.

This book is aimed at students and practitioners working on software projects where system self-management would redress maintenance complexity and cost issues.

Authors have created this web site, which will be regularly updated, to allow students to execute autonomic code in a runtime simulation. The environment provides concrete, visual feedback of the behaviours illustrating what the student has programmed.


This site has been designed and developed by Dr. Yoann Maurel.

Exercises have been designed and implemented by Dr. Yoann Maurel, Dr. Stéphanie Chollet and Jérémy Savonet.

iCasa has been designed and implemented by Dr. Thomas Lévêque, Dr. Gabriel Pedraza and Dr. Issac Garcia under the supervision of Dr. Catherine Hamon. Tomas Perez-Segovia has been involved in many usefull discussions. iCASA graphics have been designed by Dominique Bouchot.
