The goal of this track is to bring together researchers and
practitioners both from the Academia and from the Industry working in
the areas of Service-oriented and component-based software
applications and architectures and addressing adaptation and
reconfiguration issues. Different investigation topics are involved,
such as: CBSE, SOA, Functional and Non Functional (NF) requirements
(QoS, performance, resilience), monitoring, diagnosis, decision and
execution of adaptation and reconfiguration. Different research axes
are covered: concepts, methods, techniques, and tools to design,
develop, deploy and manage adaptive and reconfigurable software

The development of composite services poses very interesting
challenges concerning their functional and NF requirements. On the one
hand, a composite software system depends on the NF requirements of
its constituting components in order to provide a satisfactory service
to the user. On the other hand, the main issues for the fulfillment of
QoS and service level agreements (SLA) are concerned with performance
variability. Indeed, the QoS may evolve frequently, either because of
internal changes or because of workload fluctuations. The performance
and the robustness of the composite software system may be
significantly improved by monitoring the execution of the components
and by flexibly reacting to degradation and anomalies in a timely

The concept of adaptive and reconfigurable software systems has been
introduced in order to describe architectures which exhibit such
properties. An adaptive and reconfigurable software system can repair
itself if any execution problems occur, in order to successfully
complete its own execution, while respecting functional and NF
agreements. In the design of an adaptive and reconfigurable software
system, several aspects have to be considered. For instance, the
system should be able to predict or to detect degradations and
failures as soon as possible and to enact suitable recovery actions.
Moreover, different NF requirements service levels might be considered
in order to complete the execution in case of failure.

For this track, contributions are devoted to functional and non
functional adaptability and reconfiguration management in
service-oriented and component-based software systems. Specifically,
the relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
- Distributed and centralized collaborative solutions for the
diagnosis and repair of software systems
- Design for the diagnosability and repairability
- Collaborative Management of NF requirements (quality, security,
robustness, availability)
- Monitoring simple and composite architectures, components and services
- Semantic (or analytic) architectural and behavioral models for
monitoring of software systems
- Dynamic reconfiguration of CB and SO architectures
- Collaborative planning and decision making
- Collaborative technologies for ensuring autonomic properties
- Predictive management of adaptability.
- Collaborative Management of autonomic properties
- Experiences in practical adaptive and reconfigurable CB and SO applications
- Tools and prototypes for managing adaptability of CB and SO applications
