Important notice: SEAMS is going virtual! Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the ICSE 2020 organization has decided to hold the conference virtually on July 6-11 (please read the statement by the general chair). Following this decision, SEAMS organizing committee has decided to hold SEAMS virtually on June 29 - July 3. We will provide further details as soon as possible.


(Colocated with ICSE 2020 - the 42nd International Conference on Software Engineering)

The 15th edition of the International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems will be colocated with ICSE 2020 and will be held virtually on June 29 - July 3, 2020. 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.

Modern and emerging software systems ranging from industrial Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems to cloud and edge computing, robotics, and smart environments have to operate without interruption. Self-adaptation and self-management enable these systems to adapt themselves at runtime to preserve and optimize their operation in the presence of uncertain changes in their operating environment, resource variability, new user needs, attacks, intrusions, and faults. Approaches to complement software-based systems with self-managing and self-adaptive capabilities are an important area of research and development, offering solutions that leverage advances in fields including software architecture, fault-tolerant computing, programming languages, and run-time program analysis and verification. Research in this field is informed by related areas such as control systems, machine learning, artificial intelligence, agent-based systems, and biologically inspired computing. The SEAMS symposium focuses on applying software engineering to these approaches, to develop and advance methods, techniques, processes, and tools that can be used to support self-* properties such as self-protection, self-healing, self-optimization, and self-configuration.
