The International Journal of Adaptive, Resilient and Autonomic Systems (IJARAS) examines systems and organizations characterized by the following two properties: the ability to self-adapt to the characteristics of rapidly changing and turbulent environments by adopting complex individual and social strategies and the ability to control their changes to prevent the invalidation of their original mission statements. The central focus of IJARAS is on modeling, simulating, designing, developing, maintaining, evaluating, and benchmarking such "entelechial systems." Perception, awareness, and the planning and execution of resilient adaptation behaviors in systems and organizations are central topics of the journal. Such systems range from individual and simple embedded systems with limited perception and predefined specialized behaviors to complex hybrid social organizations like cyber-physical societies or service-oriented communities, whose emerging behaviors are many and, in some cases, difficult to predict. IJARAS focuses on the full spectrum of these problems providing academicians, practitioners, and researchers with awareness and insight on conceptual models, applied and theoretical approaches, paradigms, and other technological innovations on self-adaptive and/or self-resilient systems and organizations of any scale and nature.

Society is currently experiencing the increasing population of “things,” able to autonomously link with each other and enact complex strategies to achieve tasks. The emergence of the Semantic Web, the Internet-of-Things, Ambient Intelligence, and cyber-physical societies make it impossible to capture the intricacies of the future highly dynamic and turbulent networks of interrelated computer-based and hybrid components. As such, it is important that systems are designed to self-adapt to changes without diverging from their intended functions as prescribed in their specifications. The mission of the International Journal of Adaptive, Resilient and Autonomic Systems (IJARAS) is to offer awareness and visibility to novel techniques and methods to achieve self-adaptability and self-resilience when systems and organizations are deployed in environments where change is the rule rather than the exception. IJARAS is also a tool to enhance the awareness of the key role played by said techniques and methods: engineering self-adaptive and self-resilient systems and organizations is an urgent necessity to keep society resilient in the face of the technology that sustains it. The journal pursues its mission by addressing researchers, practitioners, engineers, educators, and professionals and by publishing novel results on each of the diverse components of such a complex and multi-disciplinary research problem.

Testimonials and Reviews

" Both on academic and industrial areas the design, the development, the selection and the maintenance of complex systems able to guarantee their working despite failures of their components is more and more strategic. IJARAS collects advanced material really useful in all the above fields and creates a natural cross fertilization to design and to understand solutions able to work within different scenarios.  Dr. Vincenzo de Florio, as EiC, is able to make the journal always interesting by selecting contribution that in other journals is hard to find integrated."
- Gianluca Mazzini, University of Ferrara, Italy

“The burgeoning field of adaptive software systems is evidenced by the growing number workshops and conferences targeting this important research area. The International Journal of Adaptive, Resilient and Autonomic Systems (IJARAS) provides an excellent venue for the latest research involving adaptive and autonomic systems. As an author of an article published in the journal I have also appreciated the professionalism and courtesy extended to the article submitters. The editorial staff in general and Dr. Vincenzo De Florio were great to work with and timely in their reviews and responses to any questions that I had.”
