The workshop address the adaptation and reconfiguration issues of the Service-oriented and cloud applications and architectures.

The concept of adaptive and reconfigurable SOA has been introduced in order to describe architectures, which exhibit functional and non-functional properties. An adaptive and reconfigurable SOA can repair itself if any execution problems occur, in order to successfully complete its own execution, while respecting functional and NF 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. Moreover, different NF requirements service levels might be considered in order to complete the execution in case of failure. Contributions are devoted to the design and the implementation of adaptive and reconfigurable service oriented and cloud applications and architectures.


Contributions are devoted to adaptability and reconfiguration management in service-oriented and cloud application. Specifically, the relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Distributed and centralized solutions for the diagnosis and repair of service-oriented and cloud applications.
  • Design for the diagnosability and repairability
  • Monitoring simple and composite architectures, components and services
  • Semantic (or analytic) architectural and behavioral models for monitoring of software systems
  • Dynamic reconfiguration of of service-oriented and cloud applications.
  • Planning and decision making
  • Technologies for ensuring autonomic properties
  • Predictive management of adaptability.
  • Management of autonomic properties
  • Experiences in practical adaptive and reconfigurable service-oriented and cloud applications.
  • Tools and prototypes for managing adaptability.
