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