Call For Papers


Over the last ten years, research on self-adaptive systems (SAS) and recently research on cyber physical systems (CPS) have attracted the attention of the research community. These kind of systems represent novel categories of software-intensive systems insofar that they possess significantly different properties than traditional software systems or embedded systems. SAS and CPS interact with human users and other SAS or CPS through powerful communication networks and change their behaviour in reaction to changes in their context. For example, in its first instalment in 2015, RESACS identified context-awareness and trustworthiness as central issues that pose new challenges for the requirements engineering of such systems. These and other properties cannot simply be added on to SAS nor CPS, but require new techniques and processes on how to design such kind of systems addressing topics from requirements to code.


The Third International Workshop on Requirements Engineering for Self- Adaptive and Cyber Physical Systems (RESACS) seeks original reports of novel ideas, emerging trends, and elaborations on the current state of practice and state of the art on any topic relevant for requirements engineering under special consideration of self-adaptation of systems and development processes, collaboration between systems, interaction between humans and systems, and cyber physicality of systems. System types include, but are not limited to Self- Adaptive Systems (SAS), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), Collaborative Systems (CES), Interaction-Intensive Systems (IIS), Social Media Systems (SMS).

Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Methods for Assessing the Requirements of SAS, CPS, CES, IIS, or SMS
- Context Analysis and Domain Modeling for SAS, CPS, CES, IIS, or SMS
- Collaboration of Systems, Humans, between Humans and Systems
- Trustworthiness in SAS, CPS, CES, IIS, or SMS
- Specification of Requirements for System Collaboration
- Quality Assurance, Component Reuse, Design Space Exploration, and Communication Strategies
- Requirements Satisfaction
- Runtime Adaptation, Runtime Decision Making, and Planning
- Dealing with Uncertainty during Development or at Runtime
- Benefits and Application Areas of SAS, CPS, CES, IIS, or SMS


We accept original manuscripts in English with strict adherence to the Springer LNCS format for the following categories:
- Full Papers (up to 15 pages): New Methods, Transfer of Existing Approaches, Empirical Validation, Case Studies, Industry & Experience Reports
- Short Papers (up to 6 pages): Problem Statements, Vision Papers, Position Papers, New Ideas and Directions, Initial Evaluations
- Poster Papers (up to 4 pages): Tool Presentations, Meta-Modelling Approaches, Very Initial Research Ideas without Evaluation

Springer LNCS style guidelines are available at Manuscripts
that do not adhere to the LNCS style guide will be rejected without review.
Please submit your original manuscripts using the EasyChair Submission System:


All accepted papers will be published in the REFSQ joint workshop proceedings and appear online at CEUR Workshop Proceedings:


In the tradition of RESACS’ mother conference REFSQ, we seek a highly interactive workshop format featuring the presenter-discussant paradigm. For every accepted manuscript, it is expected that at least one author will attend the entire workshop and present their research in panel. For each presented manuscript, a discussant is selected who is asked to review the manuscript and prepare a short summary presentation (1 slide). This format is intended to provoke highly constructive discussions among the presenters and the audience in order to jointly identify properties of SAS and CPS, what these properties entail for requirements engineering, and guide the workshop participants’ future research.
