5th Workshop on Adaptive and Reconfigurable Embedded Systems

Adaptive systems can respond to environmental changes including usage
conditions, hardware/software defects, resource allocation, and
non-continual feature usage. As such, adaptive systems can extend the area
of operations and improve efficiency in the use of system resources.
However, adaptability also incurs overhead in terms of system complexity
and requirements, as a result the adaptive system needs careful design and
usage testing. More precisely, an adaptive system requires means for
reconfiguration that allows it to adapt to changes. These means and their
mechanisms introduce additional complexity to the design and the
architecture, and they also require additional resources such as
computation, power, and also communication bandwidth for distributed

Moreover, to take advantage of adaptability, new specification methods are
needed, to define acceptable adaptation ranges which will be explored by
the system at run-time to improve a given performance metric. However,
current operating systems and network protocols are not designed to support
such flexible requirements, and generally do not support complementary
reflexive mechanisms that are needed to allow the application to adjust
itself to the current configuration. Finally, programming such systems also
needs adequate middleware layers that provide adequate interfaces for the
development of adaptive applications. Building such middleware so that it
preserves adaptability while providing performance guarantees together with
satisfying other usual goals, such as modularity, reusability and
scalability, is a challenge still to be conquered.

This workshop brings together researchers in the development and use of
adaptive and reconfigurable embedded systems and from the embedded systems
community at large. Of particular interest are new concepts and ideas for
modeling and analyzing tradeoffs of embedded and real-time systems, novel
algorithms and mechanisms to realize adaptation and reconfigurability, and
experience reports with practical case studies.

Any topics of interest to embedded, real-time and dependable systems
research in the areas of systems, languages, software, theory, networking,
control and analysis with specific focus on reconfigurability and
