This brief report intends to summarize some of the things we learned during WAC2004 sessions “Network Composition” and “Negotiation and Deployment”, and that were highlighted during the subsequent panel discussion. We try to focus especially on the following aspects: traits and trends of convergence emerging from the rather diverse findings presented in those sessions; controversial or divergent opinions on some of those findings; open issues that should be addressed by the autonomic communication community and how to tackle them; and major research directions that seem likely to emerge and shape a significant part of the autonomic communication landscape.
