                        CALL FOR PAPERS

     6th International Symposium on Software Engineering for
         Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems (SEAMS 2011)

            (Sponsored by ACM SIGSOFT and IEEE TCSE)

                       Waikiki, Honolulu, USA
                        23-24 May 2011



An increasingly important requirement for a software-based system is
the ability to self-manage by adapting itself at run time to handle
changing user needs, system intrusions or faults, a changing
operational environment, and resource variability. Such a system must
configure and reconfigure itself, augment its functionality,
continually optimize itself, protect itself, and recover itself, while
keeping its complexity hidden from the user.

The topic of self-adaptive and self-managing systems has been studied
in a large number of specific areas, including software architectures,
fault-tolerant computing, robotics, control systems, programming
languages, and biologically-inspired computing.

The objective of this symposium is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from many of these diverse areas to engage in
stimulating dialogue regarding the fundamental principles, state of
the art, and critical challenges of self-adaptive and self-managing
systems. Specifically, we intend to focus on the software engineering
aspects, including the methods, architectures, algorithms, techniques,
and tools that can be used to support dynamic adaptive behavior that
includes self-adaptive, self-managing, self-healing, self-optimizing,
and self-configuring, and autonomic software.

We are interested in submissions from both industry and academia on
all topics related to this important area. These include, but are not
limited to:

- formal notations for modeling and analyzing software self-adaptation
- programming language support for self-adaptation
- reuse support for self-adaptive systems (e.g., patterns, designs,
   code, etc.)
- design and architectural support for the self-adaptation of software
- algorithms for software self-adaptation
- integration mechanisms for self-adaptive systems
- evaluation and assurance for self-* systems (e.g., run-time
- modeling and analysis of adaptive systems (e.g., run-time models,
   cost-benefit analysis, architectural styles and patterns,
- decision-making strategies for self-adaptive and self-organizing
- support for run-time monitoring (for requirements, design,
   performance, etc.)
- model problems and exemplars

The following application areas are of particular interest:
     - mobile computing
     - dependable computing
     - autonomous robotics
     - adaptable user interfaces
     - service-oriented systems
     - autonomic computing


We are soliciting three types of papers: research papers and
experience reports (up to 10 pages, ACM SIG Proceedings Format) and
position papers for new ideas (up to 6 pages, ACM SIG Proceedings
Format). Research papers should clearly describe the technical
contribution and how the work has been validated. Experience reports
should describe how an existing technique has been applied to
real-world examples, including lessons learned from the
experience. New idea papers provide an opportunity to describe novel
and promising ideas and/or techniques that might not have been fully
validated. All submitted papers 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 as ACM
conference proceedings.
