Short Introduction to This Paper

This paper proposes a taxonomy for describing the problem space for self-healing systems including fault models, system responses, system completeness, and design context. It is hoped that this taxonomy will help researchers understand what aspects of the system dependability problem they are (and aren't) addressing with specific research projects.
