8th International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems
May 20-21, San Francisco, USA
SEAMS is the leading international forum for presenting and discussing novel ideas, innovations, trends and experiences in engineering software with self-managing and self-adaptation features. These key features enable software systems to adapt at run-time so they can cope with uncertainty. This uncertainty may be due to changes in their operational environment, variability of resources, new user needs, intrusions, and faults.
Solutions to complementing software systems with self-managing and self-adaptive capabilities have been proposed by researchers in many different areas, including software architecture, fault-tolerant computing, robotics, control systems, programming languages, run-time program analysis and verification, and biologically-inspired computing. This symposium focuses on software engineering aspects, covering methods, techniques, and tools that support the design and runtime operation of self-adaptive, self-protecting, self-healing, self-optimizing, and self-configuring software systems.
The symposium's objective is to bring together researchers and practitioners from many of the diverse areas that have an interest in adaptive software to investigate, discuss, and examine thoroughly the fundamental principles, state of the art, and critical challenges of self-adaptive and self-managing systems.
The program will include keynote speakers (including Joe Hellerstein, Google), varied panels, lively discussions, and paper presentations on the following topics of interest.
We are interested in submissions from both industry and academia on all topics related to self-adaptive and self-managing systems. These include, but are not limited to:
The following application areas are of particular interest: mobile applications, cloud computing, resource provisioning and optimization, smart applications and cyber-physical systems, autonomic computing, problem determination including logging, analysis and diagnostics, smart user interfaces, service-oriented systems, dependable computing, autonomous robotics.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Papers must not have been previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere. Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings that will be published in the ACM and IEEE digital libraries. SEAMS will recognise the highest quality submission(s) with a Best Paper Award. Papers should be formatted in IEEE style (see the ICSE 2013 style guidelines), and submitted via Easychair.
We are soliciting four types of papers, as follows:
