Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

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. While networked embedded systems relate to several research domains (e.g. software engineering, hardware engineering, network and communication), their studies are usually limited in their own concerns, assumption and verification environment. This special session aims to gather complementary research efforts addressing diverse issues in self-adaptive embedded systems, from requirement engineering, modeling, and application to concrete implementations. Both functional and extra-functional (e.g. energy-efficiency, dependability and security) properties are of interest to the session. Individual adaptive systems, distributed systems, and system-of-systems are relevant to this theme.
The session solicits works in the requirement engineering, software and hardware design, modeling, implementation and applications of self-aware, context-aware and adaptive networked embedded systems. It is a follow-up of two successful special sessions in PECCS 2011 and 2012. Selected papers from the previous editions have appeared in international journals, and this tradition will be followed in SANES’13.
