Opportunities and challenges for realizing highly complex, efficient and dependable business and control systems have been steadily increasing, driven by the continuous growth in the power, intelligence, adaptiveness and openness of technologies applied in computing, communication and control systems. Dynamically changing social and economic situations demand the next-generation of systems to be based on adaptive and reusable technologies and applications. Such systems are expected to have the characteristics of living systems composed of largely autonomous and decentralized components. Such systems are called Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ADS). The International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized System (ISADS) has been the premier events in the past twenty years to have successfully addressed these challenges. The forthcoming ISADS 2011 is the 10th event and we will celebrate the event by organizing a special forum, "The 10th ISADS Jubilee Forum'' at ISADS 2011, in addition to its technical programs. While the 10th ISADS 2011 will focus primarily on advancements and innovations in ADS concepts, technologies, applications, and strategic issues, other topics are not excluded. The ISADS 2011 Technical Program Committee invites papers and proposals of workshops and panels on the topics of the symposium, which include, but are not limited to:
