Self-adaptive systems are capable of monitoring their environment and their own states in order to optimize and match their functions to different scenarios and requirements. The concept of self-adaptiveness belongs to the wide scope of autonomic computing, while focusing on the aspects of self-awareness, context-awareness and self-adaptation. Networked embedded systems may have various forms of communication channels including on-chip/off-chip networks, wired/wireless communication, or have a mixture of different types of channels. With self-adaptive features, networked embedded systems can adjust themselves autonomously towards low energy consumption and high dependability. While existing works propose a diversity of functions for such systems, the issues of scalable method, software/hardware co-design/synthesis, formal analysis and concrete application studies, all call for much wider and more in-depth research effort.
Our two groups (Computer system laboratory, University of Turku/Turku Center for Computer Science; Energy lab research team, Chair of Computer Networks, TU Dresden) have been performing research on self-adaptive, energy-efficient communication and embedded systems, with individual research focuses. Computer system lab in University of Turku focuses on the study of self-aware and adaptive System-on-Chip and Network-on-Chip. Energy lab of TU Dresden researches self-managing, adaptive and energy-efficient wireless networks. Both sides have extensive experiences and expertise in their research domains, with many successfully completed and on-going international and national projects.
In order to encourage an international discussion of self-adaptive embedded and communication systems, this special session solicits innovative and promising works on the specification, modeling, simulation, and implementation of such systems. It is a follow-up special session of the one successfully held in PECCS 2011.

Important Dates

Paper Submission: December 15, 2011
Authors Notification: January 4, 2012
Final Paper Submission and Registration: January 13, 2012


All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book - under an ISBN reference and on CD-ROM support - and submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library ( SciTePress is member of CrossRef (
High-quality papers from the special session will be invited to extend the works for a special issue of "Self-Aware and Adaptive Embedded Systems" in International Journal of Embedded and Real-Time Communication Systems (IJERTCS,, which is an official publication of the Information Resources Management Association.
