Autonomic systems are required to adapt continually to changing environments and user goals. This process involves the real-Time update of the system's knowledge base, which should therefore be stored in a machine-readable format and automatically checked for consistency. OWL ontologies meet both requirements, as they represent collections of knowl- edge expressed in FIrst order logic, and feature embedded reasoners. To take advantage of these OWL ontology char- acteristics, this PhD project will devise a framework com- prising a theoretical foundation, tools and methods for de- veloping knowledge-centric autonomic systems. Within this framework, the knowledge storage and maintenance roles will be fulfilled by a specialised class of OWL ontologies.

|Other||In the frame of the CompArch 2014 conference, WCOP (formerly the Workshop on Component Oriented Programming) is organized as a Doctoral Symposium for young researchers in the area of component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality.|
The doctoral symposium is aimed to give feedback from established researchers to promising new ideas in the field of component based software engineering, software architecture and software quality to young researchers in all phases of their Phd career. Therefore we intentionally encourage PhD students, young Post-Doc researchers, and junior academics to submit their proposal statements with potentially unfinished and not yet validated ideas.
