This annual conference continues to explore advance methods and techniques for the design, development, and deployment of complex systems whose behavior is largely determined and controlled by computers. ECBS 2005 encompasses many facets: system modeling, formal methods, requirements specification and engineering, architectures, system integration, project management, and life-cycle issues. This emerging discipline provides innovative techniques for tackling complexity which is inherent in integrating software, hardware, and communication components into a complete system.In practice, this necessitates hiring staff to monitor the service and fix any problems with as little disruption to the user as possible. ... The ACMS incorporates the ability to start new agents in the architecture of each agent so that any agent may spawn any other ... To handle this problem the ACMS maintains a minimum of two (general) agents on every node so that a backup agent is available if any one agent fails. ... In the context of clusters, the key optimization issue is load balancing.
