Papers from an August 2005 conference are concerned with specialized topics on applications of database and expert systems technology, such as network-based information systems, self-adaptable and autonomic computing Refers to computer systems and networks that configure themselves to changing conditions and are self healing in the event of failure. "Autonomic" means "automatic responses" to unpredictable events.  systems, and secure ubiquitous networks. Other themes are high availability Also called "RAS" (reliability, availability, serviceability) or "fault resilient," it refers to a multiprocessing system that can quickly recover from a failure. There may be a minute or two of downtime while one system switches over to another, but processing will continue.  in distributed systems Distributed systems (computers)

A distributed system consists of a collection of autonomous computers linked by a computer network and equipped with distributed system software.

Some specific topics examined are configuring fault-tolerant servers for best performance, uniform distributed cache service for grid computing, expert-based ontology ontology: see metaphysics.
