Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems: Assurances (Dagstuhl Seminar 13511)
by Rogerio de Lemos, David Garlan, Carlo Ghezzi, and Holger Giese
Abstract: The important concern for modern software systems is to become more cost-effective, while being versatile, flexible, resilient, dependable, energy-efficient, customisable, configurable and self-optimising when reacting to run-time changes that may occur within the system itself, its environment or requirements. One of the most promising approaches to achieving such properties is to equip software systems with self-managing capabilities using self-adaptation mechanisms. Despite recent advances in this area, one key aspect of self-adaptive systems that remains to be tackled in depth is assurances, i.e., the provision of evidence that the system satisfies its stated functional and non-functional requirements during its operation in the presence of self-adaptation. The provision of assurances for self-adaptive systems is challenging since run-time changes introduce a high degree of uncertainty during their operation. In this seminar, we discussed the problem of assurances for self-adaptive systems from four different views: criteria for assurances, composition and decomposition of assurances, feedback loop and assurances, and perpetual provisioning of assurances.
The January 2014 issue of the ACM Transactions on Autonomous and Adaptive Systems (TAAS) has just appeared and it features a special section on best papers from the 7th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems (SEAMS 2012).
This special section comprises an Introduction by the SEAMS 2012 chairs Luciano Baresi and Hausi Müller and the following two papers:
- Eric Yuan, Naeem Esfahani, and Sam Malek: A Systematic Survey of Self-Protecting Software Systems
- Thomas Vogel and Holger Giese: Model-Driven Engineering of Self-Adaptive Software with EUREMA
We kindly invite you to participate in the upcoming SEAMS symposium co-located to the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) 2014:
