Call For Papers

The 2nd Awareness Summer School (AWASS 2013)
IMT Institute for Advanced Studies
Lucca, Italy
June 24-28, 2013

The 2nd Awareness Summer School is aimed at graduate/PhD students, and researchers from different disciplines, this summer school will cover theoretical, practical, and technological issues related to autonomic self-awareness and its various facets.

The school is organized by the Awareness Coordination Action (CA), that supports research under the FP7 FET Proactive Initiative, in particular within the research projects ASCENS (Autonomic Service-Component Ensembles), EPICS ( Engineering Proprioception in Computing Systems), ORGANIC COMPUTING (Organic Computing Initiative), RECOGNITION (Relevance and cognition for self-awareness in a content-centric Internet), SAPERE (Self-aware Pervasive Service Ecosystems), SYMBRION (Symbiotic Evolutionary Robot Organisms), and CoCoRo (Collective Cognitive Robots)
