Within recent years there has been an increasing trend towards autonomicity within systems and of system components. This has also reached the communication subsystem and the network itself. What these systems have in common is that decisions have to be taken autonomously, often using machine learning and AI components, considering available data sets that often only provide a partial view of the overall situation. This workshop addresses the challenges related to this topic and tries to look at the various different aspects as well as presenting the latest research in the related fields. Research will be presented looking at the data, its providence and its role in autonomous decision making. Further, various examples for autonomous systems are presented and how they cope with uncertainty due to incomplete data or unknown environmental conditions. The workshop will also address the human factor and ethical questions related to machine based decision making under uncertainty and potential failures that might occur. All this is discussed in five presentation by international researchers and within a panel discussion.
