Call For Papers


Assurances for Self-Adaptive Systems
1-day ESEC/FSE Workshop: September 4-6, 2011 (final date TBD), Szeged (Hungary)


Until recently, repairing faults, or performing upgrades on software systems
have been activities performed by human operators. However, both the increasing
complexity of systems and the growing uncertainty in their operational environments
have created a critical need to develop systems able to improve their operation, adapt
to change, and recover from failures autonomously. This situation has led to recent
advances in self-adaptive systems able to reconfigure their structure and modify their
behaviour at run-time to adapt to environmental changes.

Despite these advances, one key aspect of self-adaptive systems that remains to be tackled
in depth is assurances: that is, providing evidence that systems satisfy their set of
stated functional and non-functional properties during operation. Developing high-assurance,
self-adaptive systems is difficult because they tend to be highly context-dependent, and
this fact introduces a high degree of uncertainty. ASAS is a one-day workshop that will
bring together researchers to discuss software engineering aspects of self-adaptive systems,
including methods, architectures, languages, algorithms, techniques, and tools that can be
used to support assurances in self-adaptive system development.


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

- formal notations for modeling and analyzing self-adaptation
- measurement and evaluation of resilience, security, performance, and cost in adaptive systems
- run-time verification and validation
- stochastic analysis
- reasoning in the presence of uncertainty
- benchmarking resilience
- combination of run-time and development-time evidence
- social aspects of assurances
- resilient cases for self-adaptive systems


We solicit the submission of (1) position papers and progress reports describing ongoing work or
new ideas, (2) research papers and experience reports describing substantive research results,
and (3) survey papers. Papers submitted for consideration should not have been published elsewhere
and should not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration.

Papers submitted for consideration should not have been published elsewhere and should not be under
review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. All papers must conform,
at time of submission to the ACM SIG Proceedings Templates and be up to 4 pages (position papers and
progress reports) or 10 pages (research, experience, and survey papers). All submissions must be in English
(PDF format) and must be uploaded through our Easychair submissions website ( Workshop proceedings will be published in the ACM digital library. In addition
to the workshop proceedings, a post-proceedings book (under negotiation with Springer) containing a selection
of extended versions of the presented papers will be considered, depending on the scientific quality of the contributions received.


Paper submission: June 15, 2011
