Present CFP : 2017

Adaptation and reflection mechanisms must take into account novel models of computation and new classes of applications such as smart and connected city applications, industrial networked and cloud applications, the Internet of Things, and their combination. Applying reflective techniques to open-up the implementation of middleware and related software platforms for interoperability, one-to-many deployment, and adaptability have proved particularly successful and influential in the past. However, there are still open challenges, such as scalability and decentralized management as well as resilient real-time operations, that require further investigation to address new use cases in large deployment contexts, especially in diverse domains as transportation and smart grids.

ARM 2017 will provide researchers with a leading edge view on the state of the art in reflective and adaptive middleware, and on the challenging problems that remain unsolved. This edition follows the path initiated in recent editions, by bringing together experts involved in designing and reusing adaptive systems at different system layers, including architectural, OS, virtualization technology, and network layers, as well as in using techniques that are complementary to reflection.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Design and performance of adaptive and/or reflective middleware platforms;
Experiences with adaptive and reflective technologies in specific domains (e.g., sensor networks, ubiquitous/pervasive computing, mobile computing, smart and connected communities, Internet of Things, cloud/grid computing, P2P, Systems-of-Systems);
Cross-layer interactions and adaptation mechanisms, including network, OS, VM & device level techniques;
Adaptation and reflection in the presence of heterogeneous execution and programming paradigms;
Application of adaptive and reflective middleware techniques to achieve: reconfigurability and/or adaptability and/or separation of concerns; reuse; and reification of adaptation techniques and strategies;
Incorporating non-functional properties into middleware, including real-time, fault-tolerance, immutability, persistence, security, trust, privacy and so on;
Fundamental developments in the theory and practice of reflection, adaptation and control, as it relates to middleware and its interaction with other layers;
Techniques to improve performance and/or scalability of adaptive and reflective mechanisms;
Evaluation methodologies for adaptive and reflective middleware; guidelines, testbeds and benchmarks;
Approaches to maintain the integrity of adaptive and reflective technologies; convergence of adaptation.
Tool support for adaptive and reflective middleware;
Design and programming abstractions to manage the complexity of adaptive and reflective mechanisms;
Software engineering methodologies for the design and development of adaptive middleware;
Methods for reasoning, storing and dynamically updating knowledge about the services provided by adaptive/reflective middleware;
The role of techniques such as learning in the design of long-lived adaptive middleware;
Methods for asynchronous, distributed, control, coordination/cooperation among components providing middleware services;
Metrics on properties such as cost-of-adaptation, quality-of-adaptation, consistency-of-adaptation, yields.
