We are building today an exciting future in which autonomous vehicles navigate complex environments, smart cities help to solve public problems and achieve a higher quality of life, and service robots support social care workers or perform tasks that are too dangerous for humans. All these software-intensive systems need to continuously preserve and optimize their operation in the presence of uncertain changes in their operating environment, resource variability, evolving user needs, attacks and faults. In addition to that, the complexity of these systems demands autonomy, self-management, and self-adaptation. SEAMS is a CORE-A ranked conference that focuses on focuses on applying software engineering methods, techniques, processes and tools to support the construction of safe, performant, and cost-effective self-adaptive and autonomous systems that provide self-* properties like self-configuration, self-healing, self-optimization, and self-protection.
The objective of SEAMS is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government, to investigate, discuss, examine and advance the fundamental principles, the state of the art, and the solutions addressing critical challenges of engineering self-adaptive and self-managing systems.
SEAMS 2022 will be a virtual-first (remote) event. For those who wish to attend in person, some physical events will be held in Pittsburgh on the 23rd and 24th of May (2022), co-located with the 44th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE 2022).
Holger Giese is a member of the SEAMS 2022 Program Committee.
