Call for papers and Participation

------ Motivation

Many systems no longer depend on the traditional human operator to achieve some or all of the complex properties and adaptable behavior patterns necessary to meet demanding operational situations. Prime
drivers for this shift toward systems that comprise minimal or no human element are the benefits of enhanced system performance, reduced life cycle costs and the ability to operate in hazardous or remote environments.

In this sense, autonomous systems represent the next great step in the fusion of computing, sensing, and software to create intelligent systems capable of interacting with the complexities of the real world. The transition from passive to autonomous components turned software architectures into complex platforms that may contain many
components that dynamically interact, and engage in complex coordination protocols. Transportation, aerospace, defense and finance are amongst some of the sectors shifting towards replacing the human operator by architectures and implementation technologies that are intended to provide overall system improvements.

------ Goals

An important goal of this workshop is to extend the state of the art in both engineering and application in the context of autonomous systems. The main idea is to bring together researchers and practitioners, involved in the development of techniques and applications of Autonomous Software Systems, to discuss the latest developments, trends and innovations concerning the theory and practice of such software.

------ Topics of Interest

The workshop will encourage submissions related to all topics in the area of Autonomous Software Systems, including (but not limited to) the following:

- Agent systems and agent-oriented software engineering
- Autonomous systems simulation
- Domain-specific applications of autonomous software systems
- Embedded systems
- Emergent intelligence for autonomous systems
- Games and autonomous applications
- Industry applications of autonomous software systems
- Methods, infrastructures and tools for autonomous systems
- Motion planning and scheduling
- Ontologies for autonomous applications
- Robotics and automation applications
- Safety in autonomous software systems
- Semantics for autonomous negotiation, orchestration, composition and execution
- Service-oriented computing and autonomous software systems
- Trust in autonomous societies
- Unmanned systems technology
- Verification of autonomous systems

------ Format and Submissions

Authors are invited to submit technical, original papers that should not have been published or submitted to other workshops, journals or book chapters. We encourage authors to present novel ideas, critique of existing work, and practical studies and experiments related to autonomous software systems. Papers can be written in Portuguese or
English, must be no longer than 10 pages, including all the figures and references. All submissions must be in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must follow the IEEE 2-column conference format available at:

Submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will be published in conjunction of the CBSoft proceedings. Furthermore, the publication of a paper is subject to the registration of at least one of its authors to present it in the workshop.
Submissions must be via JEMS at:
