All papers accepted in Special Sessions will be included in the conference proceedings and indexed.
Scope

Self-adaptive systems are capable of monitoring their environment and their own states in order to optimize and match their functions to different scenarios and requirements. The concept of self-adaptiveness belongs to the wide scope of autonomic computing, while focusing on the aspects of self-awareness, context-awareness and self-adaptation. Networked embedded systems may have various forms of communication channels including on-chip/off-chip networks, wired/wireless communication, or have a mixture of different types of channels. With self-adaptive features, networked embedded systems can adjust themselves autonomously towards low energy consumption and high dependability. While existing works propose a diversity of functions for such systems, the issues of scalable method, software/hardware co-design/synthesis, formal analysis and concrete application studies, all call for much wider and more in-depth research effort.
This special session solicits innovative and promising works on the specification, modeling, simulation, and implementation of such systems. It is a follow-up special session of the one successfully held in PECCS 2011.

Simulation and Interaction in Intelligent Environments - SIMIE 2012
Call for Papers
Chair

All papers accepted in Special Sessions will be included in the conference proceedings and indexed.
Scope

The Special Session on Simulation and Interaction in Intelligent Environments (SIMIE) aims to bring together researchers and practitioners working in innovative technologies that facilitate human communication interaction with machines, environments and other humans. Ambient Intelligence, Multimedia, Virtual Reality and Robotics are becoming more and more important areas of technological development for corporations as well as for universities. Research is active in these challenging areas and applications are numerous in engineering as well as in health care, arts, and other areas. There are well-know examples of immersive virtual environments and telepresence systems such as in robotics, health care and other domains, making it easier to establish collaborative and intelligent environments where people can interact with each other and with artificial agents as well. For exemple , businesses can achieve significant travel cost reductions through the use of virtual meetings. In industrial or remote environments it is possible to tele-operate robots in situations that could be dangerous for humans. SIMIE encourages authors to submit papers describing original work based on diverse perspectives related to HCI, especially involving Virtual Reality, Tele-robotics, Ambient Intelligence, and related technologies, including recent advances in research, applications and tools.
