Call For Papers

The 4th International Workshop on Data-driven Self-regulating Systems, DSS 2018 ( will be held along with the 12th IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems (SASO) ( SASO is part of the Foundations and Applications of Self* Systems (FAS*).

The emergence of pervasive, ubiquitous and artificial intelligence driven technologies has resulted in unprecedented opportunities for the future development of techno-socio-economic systems but also highlights risks and dilemmas related to human autonomy, delegation, privacy, etc. Embedded ICT technologies range from real time monitoring and assisting systems for human well-being to systems that mandate the functionality and operations of traffic management infrastructure, transportation systems, smart grids, power/gas/water networks, etc. It is estimated that over 50 billion connected smart devices will be on-line by the year 2020. These autonomous smart devices powered by ever improving machine learning techniques and interacting with human users and other devices add to the complexity of our techno-socio-economic systems. It is evident that regulating these interacting complex systems of nowadays digital society is a grand challenge. Regulation needs to consider trade-offs such as the alignment of technical requirements, e.g. robustness, fault-tolerance, safety and security, with social or environmental requirements, for instance, fairness in the utilization of energy resources. Smart, autonomic and self-regulating mechanisms need to be developed for filtering and reasoning about data streams in real-time and transform them to valuable information based on which intelligent adaptive decisions can be made in a decentralized fashion under a plethora of operational scenarios.

The aim of the 4th International Workshop on Data-driven Self-regulating Systems is to foster interactions between researchers of different disciplines working on challenges about the self-organization and self-adaptation of complex techno-socio-economic systems. It also aims to promote communication and exchange of ideas between academia and industry. The workshop will run for a full day and will include (i) one or more keynote speakers, (ii) presentation of papers, (iii) software artifacts session and (iv) potentially a panel discussion. Panelist may include distinguished researchers who participate in the international research hubs of several large significant projects such as Nervousnet, VW Stiftung planning project "AI for well-being", SoBigData, ASSET, etc.


Topics and application domains may include (but not limited to) the following:
--artificial intelligence & machine learning
--autonomic computing
--Internet of Things
--pervasive/ubiquitous computing
--big data analytics
--cloud computing
--distributed systems
--multi-agent systems
--adaptive mechanisms
--complex systems & (social) networks
--mechanism design & game theory
--intelligent health management
--smart grids
--power/gas/water networks
--transportation/traffic systems
--ambient-assisted living
--social media/networks
--mobile applications
--disease spreading
--evacuation planning

Submission Instructions

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to self-regulating systems. Submitted papers must not
have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract
of no more than 400 words. Papers must be formatted according to CPS format; see formatting instructions and stylesheets and have a maximum length
of 6 pages. Papers are submitted as PDF files via the Easychar: Each paper will
receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, contributions, technical clarity and presentation. Authors
of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Workshop proceedings will be published in IEEE
Computer Society’s Conference Publishing Services. Authors of distinguished workshop papers may be invited to extend their workshop papers for their
possible publication in a special issue of an international journal.
