SEAMS 2020 - call for papers

News | Posted on Friday 8 November 2019

AAIP's Dr Radu Calinescu is a Program Co-Chair and Dr Simos Gerasimou is a publicity co-chair for the 15th International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems (SEAMS 2020). The Call for Papers is now out - the abstract deadline submission date is 10 January 2020.

The 15th International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems (SEAMS) takes place in Seoul, South Korea, from May 25 to 26 2020. It is co-located with the 42nd International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2020).

The Call for Papers is now out:

Modern and emerging software systems, such as industrial Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, cloud and edge computing, robotics, and smart environments have to operate without interruption. Self-adaptation and self-management enable these systems to adapt themselves at runtime to preserve and optimise their operation in the presence of uncertain changes in their operating environment, resource variability, new user needs, attacks, intrusions, and faults.

Approaches to augment software and software-controlled systems with self-managing and self-adaptive capabilities are an important area of research and development, offering solutions that leverage advances in fields such as software architecture, fault-tolerant computing, programming languages, run-time program analysis and verification, among others. 

Additionally, research in this field is informed by related areas such as control systems, machine learning, artificial intelligence, agent-based systems, and biologically inspired computing. The SEAMS symposium focuses on applying software engineering to these approaches, including methods, techniques, processes and tools that can be used to support self-* properties like self-protection, self-healing, self-optimisation, and self-configuration.

The objective of SEAMS is to bring together researchers and practitioners From academia, industry and government, to investigate, discuss, examine and advance the fundamental principles, the state of the art, and the solutions addressing critical challenges of engineering self-adaptive and self-managing systems.
