Call for Papers: SEAMS 2022

The 17th International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive
and Self-Managing Systems (SEAMS)
Co-located with the 44th International Conference on Software
Engineering (ICSE 2022)

Pittsburgh, PA, USA. May 23-24, 2022




* Abstract submission:      January 13th, 2022
* Paper submission:         January 20th, 2022
* Notification:             March 4th, 2022



Today we are building an exciting future in which autonomous vehicles
navigate complex environments, smart cities help to solve public
problems and achieve a higher quality of life, and service robots
support social care workers or perform tasks that are too dangerous for
humans. All these software-intensive systems need to continuously
preserve and optimize their operation in the presence of uncertain
changes in their operating environment, resource variability, evolving
user needs, attacks and faults. In addition to that, the complexity of
these systems demands autonomy, self-management, and self-adaptation.
SEAMS is a CORE A conference that focuses on developing and applying
software engineering methods, techniques, processes, and tools to
support the construction of safe, performant, and cost-effective
self-adaptive and autonomous systems that provide self-* properties like
self-configuration, self-healing, self-optimization, and self-protection.

The objective of SEAMS is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry and government, to investigate,
discuss, examine and advance the fundamental principles, the state of
the art, and the solutions addressing critical challenges of engineering
self-adaptive and self-managing systems.



We welcome research contributions on all topics related to engineering
self-adaptive, self-managing, and autonomous systems, including:

Foundational Concepts
* Self-* properties
* Uncertainty
* Runtime models and variability
* Mixed-initiative and human-in-the-loop
* Ethical challenges

Engineering Strategies
* AI and machine learning
* Automatic synthesis techniques
* Control theory
* Search-based techniques
* Model checking
* Simulation and digital twins

Engineering Activities
* Domain/environment analysis
* Requirements elicitation
* Architecture and design
* Verification and validation
* Systematic reuse
* Processes and methodologies

* Formal notations for self-* properties
* Domain specific languages
* Programming language support

...and all application areas and domains, including but not limited to:
industrial internet of things, cyber-physical systems, cloud/fog/edge
computing, bioengineering, robotics, smart environments, smart user
interfaces, privacy and security.

A special focus of SEAMS 2022 is SEAMS in industry, and we especially
solicit papers on in-practice applications, challenges and hard problems
that industries face when building modern autonomous and adaptive systems.



SEAMS 2022 solicits the following types of papers:


* Research papers (10 pages + 2 pages of references): papers offering
novel and mature research contributions, as well as experiences gained
from applying or evaluating research results in practice.

* Short papers (6 pages + 1 page of references): papers presenting
ongoing research or new research ideas without a complete evaluation.


* Artifact papers (6 pages + 1 page of references): describe model
problems, exemplars, or sets of resources (e.g., data sets, tools, and
frameworks) that are useful for the broader SEAMS community to develop,
evaluate, and compare self-adaptation approaches. Please check the
specific call for this type of paper at following link:


* SEAMS in-practice papers (up to 10 pages, including references):
address real-world experience, failures, challenges, and opportunities
of autonomous, adaptive, and self-managing systems or components through
systematic investigations. Papers should describe industry-relevant
experiences and best practices and an in-depth discussion of results and
lessons learned. The evaluation criteria for submissions include
potential impact, repeatability, and a real-world focus. Accepted papers
will appear in the proceedings.

* Self-nominated invited industrial talks (2 pages of abstract, talk
organization - possibly video recording, and description of speaker(s)):
must feature current trends in the industry on the engineering and/or
management of autonomous, adaptive, and self-managing systems or
components. Talks should present ideas that are both inspirational and
informative. Proposals should make clear why the talk is interesting to
attendees of the in-practice track of SEAMS 2022. The duration of
accepted talks is 30 minutes. Extended abstracts of the accepted talks
will appear in the proceedings.


* Doctoral papers (4 pages + 1 page of references): research in progress
that is intended to lead to a doctoral dissertation.
