Conference Track @ the 31th WETICE Conference

The goal of this track is to bring together researchers and practitioners both from the Academia and from the Industry working in the areas of the adaptation and reconfiguration of distributed systems. Different investigation topics are involved, such as: CBSE, Web service, cloud applications, mobile applications, Functional and Non-Functional requirements (QoS, performance, resilience), monitoring, diagnosis, decision and execution of adaptation and reconfiguration. Different research areas are covered: concepts, methods, techniques, and tools to design, develop, deploy and manage adaptive and reconfigurable software systems.

The concept of adaptive and reconfigurable software systems has been introduced in order to describe architectures, which exhibit such properties. An adaptive and reconfigurable software system can repair itself if any execution problems occur, in order to successfully complete its own execution, while respecting functional and Non-Functional agreements. In the design of an adaptive and reconfigurable software system, several aspects have to be considered. For instance, the system should be able to predict or to detect degradations and failures as soon as possible and to enact suitable recovery actions.

For this track, contributions are devoted to functional and non functional adaptability and reconfiguration management in service-oriented and component-based software systems. Specifically, the relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Distributed and centralized collaborative solutions for the diagnosis and repair of software systems
  • Design for the diagnosability and repairability
  • Collaborative Management of Non-Functional requirements (quality, security, robustness, availability)
  • Monitoring simple and composite architectures, components and services
  • Semantic (or analytic) architectural and behavioral models for monitoring of software systems
  • Dynamic reconfiguration of cloud and mobile applications
  • Collaborative planning and decision making
  • Collaborative technologies for ensuring autonomic properties
  • Predictive management of adaptability.
  • Collaborative Management of autonomic properties
  • Experiences in practical adaptive and reconfigurable applications
  • Tools and prototypes for managing adaptability of applications
  • IoT and cyber physical systems
  • Blockchain as a service
