SANES 2012 : Self-Adaptive Networked Embedded Systems - SANES
Call For Papers
Conference name: Self-Adaptive Networked Embedded Systems - SANES 2012
In conjunction with the 2nd International Conference on Pervasive and Embedded Computing and Communications Systems - PECCS 2012
Venue: Rome, Italy
Conference date: 24-26 February, 2012
University of Turku
Technical University of Dresden
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.
Our two groups (Computer system laboratory, University of Turku/Turku Center for Computer Science; Energy lab research team, Chair of Computer Networks, TU Dresden) have been performing research on self-adaptive, energy-efficient communication and embedded systems, with individual research focuses. Computer system lab in University of Turku focuses on the study of self-aware and adaptive System-on-Chip and Network-on-Chip. Energy lab of TU Dresden researches self-managing, adaptive and energy-efficient wireless networks. Both sides have extensive experiences and expertise in their research domains, with many successfully completed and on-going international and national projects.
In order to encourage an international discussion of self-adaptive embedded and communication systems, 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.
