Self-adaptation and self-management are key requirements in many modern and emerging software systems, including the industrial internet of things, cyber-physical systems, cloud computing, and mobile computing. These systems must be able to adapt themselves at run time to preserve their operation in the presence of uncertain changes in their operating environment, resource variability, new user needs, intrusions, and faults.
Solutions to complement software systems with self-managing and self-adaptive capabilities have been proposed by researchers from different areas including software architecture, fault-tolerant computing, programming languages, robotics, and run-time program analysis and verification. Additionally, solutions have been proposed in related areas like biologically-inspired computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, control systems, and agent-based systems. The SEAMS symposium focuses on applying software engineering to these solutions, including methods, techniques, and tools that can be used to support self-* properties like self-adaptation, self-management, self-healing, self-optimization, and self-configuration. This symposium focuses on applying software engineering aspects to these solutions, including methods, techniques, and tools that can be used to support the self-* properties like self-adaptation, self-management, self-healing, self-optimization, and self-configuration.
The objective of SEAMS is to bring together researchers and practitioners from many of these diverse areas to investigate, discuss, and examine thoroughly the fundamental principles, state of the art, and critical challenges of engineering self-adaptive and self-managing systems.
We are soliciting three types of papers: long papers (10 pages for the main text, inclusive of figures, tables, appendices, etc.; references may be included on up to two additional pages), position papers for new ideas (6 pages + 1 references) and artifact papers (4 pages + 1 reference). Long papers should clearly describe innovative and original research or explain how existing techniques have been applied to real-world examples. Position papers should describe novel and promising ideas and/or techniques that may not be fully validated. Artifact papers must describe why and how the accompanying artifact may be useful for the broader community. All submitted papers and artifacts will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Papers must not have been previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere. The accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings that will be published in the ACM and IEEE digital libraries. Papers must conform to IEEE formatting guidelines (see ICSE 2015 style guidelines), and submitted via EasyChair.
