A new computing and networking paradigm is currently undergoing rapid advancements and emerging on the spot as one of the priority research areas: nature-inspired autonomic computing and networking (NIACN). In fact, research activities on NIACN are recently booming, marked by the increasing developments of NIACN applications. NIACN is characterized by its self-* facets such as self-organization, self-configuration, self-healing, self-optimization, self-protection and so on whose context-awareness used to dynamically control computing functions. The overarching goal of NIACN is to realize nature-inspired computing and networking systems (so-called autonomic systems), that can manage themselves without direct human interventions. Meeting this grand challenge of NIACN requires a rigorous interdisciplinary approach to nature-inspired computing and networking systems. To this end, in this invited session, we will present and discuss advances in NIACN through dissecting nature-inspired computing and networking systems taking advantage of formal engineering methods. Furthermore, in the field of NIACN, there exists a need for novel research results on properties of nature-inspired computing and networking systems. All of these are to achieve firm formal foundations of NIACN.

This invited session on ADVANCES in NATURE-INSPIRED AUTONOMIC COMPUTING and NETWORKING (ANIACN 2012) in conjunction with the ACIIDS 2012 conference is a place for highly original ideas about how NIACN is going to shape computing and networking systems of the future. Hence, it focuses on rigorous approaches and cutting-edge solutions which break new ground in dealing with the properties of nature-inspired computing and networking systems. Its purpose is to make an academic forum more accessible to researchers, scientists, professionals and graduate students as well as developers and practitioners in computing science, especially in the area of computational intelligence by providing them with state-of-the-art research results and future opportunities and trends.

This session is organized for researchers, scientists, professionals and graduate students in computing science, especially in the area of computational intelligence as well as developers and practitioners in intelligent computing and networking systems design.

Original papers are solicited for this session. In particular, theoretical contributions should be formally stated and justified, and practical applications should be based on their firm formal basis. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Autonomic computing systems
* Software architectures for autonomic computing
* Resource sharing in autonomic networking
* Autonomic middleware
* Self-optimization and self-awareness
* Autonomic grid systems
* Security and privacy in autonomic computing
* Security and Privacy in autonomic networking
* Architectures for autonomic networking
* Modeling autonomic networking and communications
* Integration models and protocols in autonomic computing
* Biologically inspired autonomic networking
* Autonomic communications
* Cognitive radio networks
* Autonomic pervasive systems
* Swarm intelligence in autonomic networking
* Autonomic models and systems for ad hoc networks
* Fundamental science of self-managing systems
* Autonomic computing and networking test-beds
* Autonomic pervasive communications
* Autonomic cognitive networks
* Autonomic storage and caching systems
* Performance analysis of autonomic systems
* Agents for autonomic computing
* Autonomic peer-to-peer systems
* Autonomic architecture for sensor systems
* Dynamic spectrum access
* Self-healing and self-protection in autonomic networks
* Active and programmable networks
