The conceptual architecture of autonomic communications requires a knowledge layer to offer effective, transparent and high level self-management capabilities. This knowledge plane can utilise the behaviour of autonomic communication regimes to monitor and intervene at many differing levels of network granularity. This paper introduces autonomic computing and autonomic communication, before outlining the role of knowledge in autonomic networks. Some research issues, in particular the concept of dynamic context as a method to acquire knowledge dynamically that helps to facilitate a successful realisation of the knowledge plane are explored and discussed.
