  • Focuses on recent advances in autonomic computing
  • Addresses various problems related to formal engineering methods for nature-inspired computing systems
  • Of interest to computer scientists and computer engineers, including developers and practitioners in computing and networking systems design
The LNCS journal Transactions on Computational Science reflects recent developments in the field of Computational Science, conceiving the field not as a mere ancillary science but rather as an innovative approach supporting many other scientific disciplines. The journal focuses on original high-quality research in the realm of computational science in parallel and distributed environments, encompassing the facilitating theoretical foundations and the applications of large-scale computations and massive data processing. It addresses researchers and practitioners in areas ranging from aerospace to biochemistry, from electronics to geosciences, from mathematics to software architecture, presenting verifiable computational methods, findings, and solutions and enabling industrial users to apply techniques of leading-edge, large-scale, high performance computational methods.
The 15th issue of the Transactions on Computational Science journal, edited by Cong-Vinh Phan, contains six invited papers on autonomic computing, with a special focus on formal engineering methods for nature-inspired computing systems. The papers give an in-depth overview of the area and a comprehensive evaluation of various methodologies for autonomic computing.
