Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems (SEAMS)

Two-Day ICSE Workshop: May 3-4, 2010 Cape Town, South Africa



With the rapid growth of web services and the continuous evolution  
from software-intensive systems to socio-technical ecosystems, the  
management complexity of these modern, decentralized, distributed  
computing systems presents significant challenges for businesses and  
often exceeds the capabilities of human operators. End-users  
increasingly demand from businesses that they provide software systems  
that are versatile, resilient, dependable, robust, service-oriented,  
meshable, inter-operable, continuously available, decentralized, self- 
healing, configurable, or self-optimizing.

One of the most promising approaches to achieving some of these  
properties is to equip software systems with feedback control to  
address the management of inherent system dynamics. The resulting self- 
adapting and self-managing computing systems are better able to cope  
with and even accommodate changing environments, shifting  
requirements, and computing-on-demand needs.


The goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers and  
practitioners from many of these diverse areas to discuss 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 to support dynamical  
adaptive and self-managing behaviour. In this 5th workshop, we will  
look at results achieved in self-adaptability and experimental systems  
to compare approaches and results.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- feedback control and architecture patterns for self-adaptation and  
- models and algorithms for software self-management;
- integration mechanisms for self-adaptive and self-managing systems;
- formal notations for modeling and analyzing software self-adaptation;
- methods for engineering user-trust of self-adaptive and self- 
managing systems;
- methods to instrument existing systems to observe self-managing  
behaviour over long periods of time;
- dynamical verification and validation of self-managing software;
- evaluation and assurance for self-adaptive systems;
- decision algorithms for self-adaptive systems;
- exemplars for benchmarking.

The following application areas are of particular interest: autonomic  
computing; problem determination including logging, analysis and  
diagnostics; mobile computing; dependable computing; autonomous  
robotics; adaptable user interfaces; service-oriented applications.
We strongly encourage submissions about engineering self-adaptive  
computing systems from components.


We invite

- position papers and progress reports describing ongoing work or new  
- research papers and experience reports describing validated research  
- survey papers

all within the scope of the workshop.

Papers should be between 5-10 pages long and must not have been  
previously published or submitted elsewhere. Accepted papers will be  
published in the ACM and IEEE Digital Libraries under SEAMS 2010  
Workshop Proceedings as part of the ICSE 2010 Workshop publications.  
Please submit papers for SEAMS 2010 electronically using SEAMS 2010  
electronic submission web site which is powered by CyberChairPROv7.  
Please follow the ICSE 2010 paper format instructions.
