GI Dagstuhl Seminar 14433

The GI Dagstuhl Seminar on "Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems" (Seminar 14433) took place at Schloss Dagstuhl from October 19 - 24, 2014. It was organized by Alessandra Gorla, Matthias Tichy, and Thomas Vogel.

The first two days of the seminar were spent on talks by the participants who work on different fields related to self-adaptive software and systems, in particularly:

  • Requirements and Development
  • Design and Development
  • Control Theory and Synthesis
  • Monitoring, Analysis and Decision-Making
  • Verification, Validation, and Assurances
  • Resource Efficiency and Performance
  • Context-based Applications
  • Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems


Based on these fields, the participants formed break out groups that discussed hot topics in software engineering for self-adaptive systems during the last three days. These topics covered (1) the role of the user and context for self-adaptation, (2) distributed self-adaptive systems, (3) cyber-physical and self-adaptive systems, and (4) assurances for self-adaptive systems.
