7 In conjunction with the the 13th IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems ([[SASO 2019>>]]) and the 16th IEEE International Conference on Autonomic Computing ([[ICAC 2019>>]]), [[FAS*>>]].
9 **Location:** Umeå, Sweden
11 === Call for Papers ===
13 Modern software systems are becoming more and more **collective** and are composed of many distributed and heterogeneous entities. These systems operate under continuous perturbations making manual adjustments infeasible. For a collective system to be resilient, its **adaptation** must also be collective, in the sense that multiple entities must adapt in a way that addresses critical runtime conditions while preserving the benefits of collaborative interdependencies. Decision- making in such systems is distributed and possibly highly dispersed, and interaction between the entities may lead to the emergence of unexpected phenomena.
15 In such systems, a new approach for adaptation is needed to allow: multiple entities to collectively adapt with (ii) negotiations to decide which collective changes are best. Collective adaptation also raises a second important challenge: Which parts of the system (things, services, people) should be engaged in an adaptation? This is nontrivial, as multiple solutions to the same problem may be generated at different levels. The challenge is to understand these levels and create mechanisms to decide the right scope for an adaptation for a given problem.
17 This workshop solicits papers that address new methodologies, theories and principles that can be used to develop a better understanding of the fundamental factors underpinning the operation of such systems, so that they can be better designed, built, and analyzed, as well as case studies and applications showing such approaches in action. Interdisciplinary work is particularly welcomed.
19 **Suggested Topics (but not limited to):**
21 * Novel theories relating to operating principles of CAS
22 * Novel design principles for building CAS systems
23 * Insights into the short and long-term adaptation of CAS systems
24 * Insights into emergent properties of CAS
25 * Insights into general properties of large scale, distributed CAS
26 * Decision-making approaches in CAS
27 * Methodologies for studying, analyzing, and building CAS
28 * Frameworks for analyzing or developing CAS case studies
29 * Languages, platforms, APIs and other tools for CAS
30 * Scenarios, case studies, and experience reports of CAS in different contexts (e.g., Smart Mobility, Smart Energy/Smart Grid, Smart Buildings, traffic management, emergency response, etc.)
32 === Important Dates ===

51 By submitting a paper, the authors confirm that in case of acceptance, at least one author will attend the workshop to present the work. Papers will be peer reviewed on the basis of originality, readability, relevance to themes, soundness, and overall quality. Workshop proceedings will be published on IEEE Xplore in parallel with the main conference proceedings.
