Call for Papers

Semaps 2013 workshop will be held in conjunction with ICSOC 2013, Berlin,Germany, Dec. 2-5, 2013. The workshop is soliciting papers on broad topics for pervasive service system. This for example includes software engineering research for achieving self-management capabilities, artificial intelligence research to be built into autonomous systems, context-awareness research to facilitate the implementation of self-managed systems, approaches and tools for building pervasive service systems which can span across small devices and powerful computing node including cloud nodes, social networking, pattern recognition and other related research for achieving context-awareness, new applications and demos for pervasive service systems and autonomous systems. 

The topics of SeMaPS 2013 workshop include but not limited to:
*    Software engineering research on achieving self-management capabilities in the converged computing environments, for example autonomic components, architecture driven self-management in pervasive service systems, formal methods for regulating self-management activities;
*    Ways of improving the intelligence of self-managing systems through different computing intelligence approaches, for example the use of different computing intelligence approaches for planning in self-management features;
*    Approaches to self-managing capabilities in pervasive service systems, to realizing self-protection, self-optimization, self-configuration/adaptation, self-diagnosis/healing;
*    Context-awareness for pervasive service systems include context modelling and reasoning for self-managing systems, for example the usage of efficient pattern recoginition algorithms to recognize the current contexts, new context modeling and reasoning approaches for achieving the context-awareness;
*    New pervasive service systems including various applications for example smart transportation systems, smart logistic systems, smart manufacturing systems and robotic systems, etc.
*    Environments and tools for the development of self-managing pervasive service systems

We are accepting three kinds of papers, the first are original and unpublished and research papers, the second are visionary papers accepted as “work in progress” papers, the thrid are demo papers and industrial papers that shows strong application of self-managing, pervasive service systems.
All accepted papers will be published in Springer LNCS as post conference proceedings.
