SEAMS 2022 – Call for Participation

SEAMS 2022: The 17th Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and
Self-Managing Systems

Co-located with ICSE 2022,

May 18-20: Virtual Technical Program
May 23: In-Person Program, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Many of today's 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
focuses on
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

SEAMS brings 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.

SEAMS 2022 will have a virtual component, an in-person component, plus
vibrant keynotes, a
community discussion, and a doctoral track.

Industrial Challenge Problem Design (In-Person)
Working with colleagues from a local Pittsburgh company, the half-day in
person event on May 23 is going to be devoted to the definition of an
industrial challenge, with direct industrial relevance, that can be
addressed by researchers.

COVID-19 Statement
With such an international audience, we want everyone to feel safe. A
number of prospective
participants have expressed concerns about attending in person. To
encourage as many people to attend as possible, all in-person
participants will be required to show proof of vaccination and to wear
masks during the conference. During meals and receptions, especially
those held outdoors, masking requirements will be relaxed appropriately.
