Scope of the conference

Adaptation plays a central role in dynamically changing systems. It is about the ability of the system to "responsively" self-adjust upon change in the surrounding environment. Like in living creatures that have evolved over millions of years developing ecological systems due to their self-adaptation and fitness capacity to the dynamic environment, systems undergo similar cycle to improve or at least do not weaken their performance when internal or external changes take place. Internal or endogenous change bears on the physical structure of the system (hardware and/or software components) due mainly to faults, knowledge inconsistency, etc. It requires a certain number of adaptivity features such as flexible deployment, self-testing, self-healing and self-correction. Extraneous change touches on the environment implication like operational mode or regime, non-stationarity of input, new knowledge facts, need to cooperation with other systems, etc. These two classes of change shed light on the research avenues towards smart systems. To meet the challenges of these systems, a sustainable effort is necessary to develop: (1) adequate operational structures involving notions like self-healing, self-testing, reconfiguration, optimal software and hardware synergy, etc.; (2) appropriate design concepts encompassing self-x properties (self-organization, self-monitoring, etc.) to allow for autonomy and optimal behavior in the (dynamically changing) environment; (3) efficient computational algorithms targetting dynamic setting, life-long learning, evolving and adaptive behavior and structure. For the sake of this three-fold development direction, various design and computational models stemming from machine learning, statistics, metaphors of nature inspired from biological and cognitive plausibility, etc. can be of central relevance. ICAIS intends to be a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss the recent advances of adaptive and intelligent systems with respect to the three research directions and their application in various practical domains.
