Rationale and Aims

As enterprises become increasingly automated through more and more complex applications and IT systems, there is a growing need to have systems, which extend their functionality towards their self-management and adaptation to new requirements imposed by a constantly changing reality. Self-management and adaptation involve all phases of the lifecycle of complex applications and IT systems and affect architectural, technological and software aspects. Such complex systems need cross-disciplinary interactions and therefore this workshop aims at having intensive discussion provoked by presentations related to these different aspects, including: analytics for self-management and adaptation, collaborative systems for adaptive and self-managed enterprise applications, context-aware middleware services, grid computing, software architectures for adaptive and self-managed enterprise applications, adaptive and reactive Web applications, software tools and development environments for adaptive and self-managed enterprise applications.

Workshop Format

Each paper will be a 20-minute presentation, followed by 10-minutes discussion and debate. 
The workshop will start with a talk by a keynote industrial speaker and will close with a panel to discuss key questions and topics that arise from the presentations. The panel will be multidisciplinary and including researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry who have presented the best and/or most controversial papers.

Topics

Areas of particular interest for the workshop include (but are not limited to):

  • Analytics for self-management and adaptation
  • Collaborative systems for adaptive and self-managed enterprise applications
  • Context-aware middleware services
  • Design of self-organizing systems
  • Failures handling
  • Grid computing
  • Software architectures for adaptive and self-managed enterprise applications
  • Reactive Web
  • Software processes and workflows
  • Software tools and development environments for adaptive and self-managed enterprise applications
  • Technologies supporting self-management

Submission guidelines

Papers smust be submitted in the form of a PDF file through the conference review system. Authors are requested to prepare submissions as close as possible to final camera-ready versions following the format specified by LNCS (the maximum number of pages for the camera ready is 14). Full details, including more specific guidelines on the preparation of papers, as well as styles for LaTeX2e, Tex, and MS Word, can be found on the Springer LNCS Web site.  Submissions should be printable on a standard printer on common paper formats.

The submission should clearly emphasize the discussion aspects relevant to the workshop. All submitted papers will be judged on their quality and relevance.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop to present their work.

In case of problems with the submission system or any technical question, please contact the Program Chairs.

Proceedings

Accepted papers will be published in  CAiSE Workshop Proceedings, arranged by FEUP Edições with ISBN.
