2014: SEfSAS-4jr (Seminar 14433)*

The 2014 seminar aims for junior researchers working in the SEfSAS field and related areas to self-adaptive software. It is organized by Alessandra Gorla (Universität des Saarlandes – Saarbrücken, DE), Matthias Tichy (University of Göteborg, SE), and Thomas Vogel (Hasso-Plattner-Institut – Potsdam, DE).

More information on this seminar can be found on the Dagstuhl seminar page and here.

2014: Control Theory meets Software Engineering (Seminar 14382)*

The aim of this seminar is to bring together young researchers from the two communities of Software Engineering and Control Theory in order to bring control to the core of adaptation. The seminar is organized by Antonio Filieri (Universität Stuttgart, DE) and
Martina Maggio (Lund University, SE).

2013: SEfSAS III - Assurances (Seminar 13511)

The 2013 seminar has focused on the assurance aspect in software engineering for self-adaptive systems. It was organized by Rogerio de Lemos (University of Kent, GB), David Garlan (Carnegie Mellon University, US), Carlo Ghezzi (Politecnico di Milano, IT), and Holger Giese (Hasso-Plattner-Institut – Potsdam, DE).

2010: SEfSAS II (Seminar 10431)

The SEfSAS II seminar was held in October 2010. It was organized by Rogerio de Lemos (University of Kent, GB), Holger Giese (Hasso-Plattner-Institut – Potsdam, DE), Hausi A. Müller (University of Victoria, CA), and Mary Shaw (Carnegie Mellon University, US).

An outcome of this seminar is the LNCS book "Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems II" that contains results from discussions at the seminar, in particularly:

  • sefsas2bookSoftware Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems: A Second Research Roadmap (A draft version of the roadmap has been published in the Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings)
  • A Design Space for Self-Adaptive Systems
  • Software Engineering Processes for Self-Adaptive Systems
  • On Patterns for Decentralized Control in Self-Adaptive Systems
  • Towards Practical Runtime Verification and Validation of Self-Adaptive Software Systems

More information about this book can be obtained from Springer and the chapters of the book are available on Springerlink.

2008: SEfSAS (Seminar 08031)

The first seminar was held in January 2008. It was organized by Betty H.C. Cheng (Michigan State University, US), Rogerio de Lemos (University of Kent, GB), Holger Giese (Hasso-Plattner-Institut – Potsdam, DE), Paola Inverardi (Univ. degli Studi di L'Aquila, IT), and Jeff Magee (Imperial College London, GB).

An outcome of this seminar is the LNCS book "Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems" that contains results from discussions at the seminar, in particularly:

  • sefsasbookSoftware Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems: A Research Roadmap (A draft version of the roadmap has been published in the Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings)
  • Modeling Dimensions of Self-Adaptive Software Systems
  • Engineering Self-Adaptive Systems through Feedback Loops
