Call For Papers

The goal of the GAUSS (Governing Adaptive and Unplanned Systems of Systems)
workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on the
design, the development, the validation, and the continuous maintenance of
System of Systems (SoSs). The workshop promotes research works on distributed
solutions built on top of independent (sub)systems that seamlessly cooperate,
even through emergent behaviors. In addition, research and case studies are in
scope if addressing dynamic modules integration, autonomous reaction to
unplanned scenarios, or dynamic evolution of SoS operational and managerial
assets (i.e., environmental adaptation). Both the contexts encourage
contributions focusing on ensuring desired sets of quality attributes (e.g.,
reliability, security, resilience) that SoSs must satisfy.

This year the GAUSS workshop is also focusing on the special theme:
* Engineering and Exploiting Microservice Architectures for SoSs.
In addition to contributions fulfilling the core aims of the workshop,
submissions about methods and solutions on this special theme are also

The GAUSS workshop will accept regular and short papers reporting on research
work, surveys, mapping studies, or presentations of case studies.

In addition, also for the current edition, the organizing committee is planning
to invite the best contributions for a special issue on a Journal related to the
topics of the Workshop (to be decided).

====== Topics ======

The list of relevant topics include but is not limited to:
* Modeling, design, and engineering of SoSs
* Architectures, architectural styles, and middlewares for SoSs
* Foundations and formal methods for SoSs
* Methods for architecture synthesis, coordination and adaptation patterns
* Online V&V techniques for functional and non-functional assessment and
* Online and Offline testing techniques for SoSs and Complex Systems
* Context-awareness and context-aware adaptation techniques
* Reconfiguration and optimization techniques
* Self-* mechanisms
* Techniques for extracting behavior models from streams of continuos
* Applications of SoSs
* Distributed Software Engineering: strategies, processes, testing and methods
* SoSs experiences, case studies, benchmarking, evaluations, testing, and
industrial perspectives
* Models of functional and non functional requirements, context and
governance policies to support integration of SoSs
* Knowledge management and Decision-making process in SoSs
* Ambient Intelligent Systems
* MultiAgents solutions for SoSs
* Interaction Platforms enabling heterogeneous entities participation
* Knowledge bases integration support and exploitation for semantic
* Autonomic coordination, negotiation and interactions for MultiAgents and
Complex systems
* Blockchain technology for distributed and heterogeneous systems
* Internet of Things-based SoSs
* Adaptive and Reactive systems
* Engineering and Exploiting Microservice Architectures for SoSs

====== Venue ======

The 3rd Edition of the International Workshop GAUSS will be held in conjunction
with the 32nd edition of the ISSRE Conference that will be held in Wuhan, China,
Oct 25 - 28, 2021. Also this year both the GAUSS Workshop and the ISSRE
Conference will adopt a hybrid model allowing either in-person or online remote

Information regarding how to follow the events will be provided in the next

====== Regular Papers ======

Papers submitted for evaluation must be original, unpublished, and not submitted
for publication elsewhere.

Any submission of a contribution implies that, if accepted for presentation, at
least one of its proponents must register (paying the requested fee) and attend
the conference for giving the presentation.

===== Submissions =====

Authors should submit an electronic copy of the paper (written in English) in
PDF using the EasyChair submission site:

Submissions must adhere to the IEEE CS Format Guidelines (for more information
see at ).
GAUSS 2021 accepts two categories of papers:
* LONG: up to 8 pages (with references)
* SHORT: up to 4 pages (with references)

Papers that exceed the number of pages for their submission category could be
rejected without review.

===== Dates =====

* Abstract submission deadline: July 23rd [**not mandatory**]
* Full paper submission deadline: August 1st, 2021
* Notification to authors: August 21st, 2021
* Camera-ready papers: August 28th, 2021

===== Publication =====

Accepted peer-reviewed papers will be included in a supplemental volume of the
ISSRE conference proceedings, and published by the IEEE Computer Society on
IEEE Xplore.

We plan to invite some selected papers to submit an extended version to a
special issue on a Journal related to the topics of the Workshop (to be
