Self-Adaptive Systems

A large class of software-intensive systems, including those for industrial automation, consumer electronics, airplanes, automobiles, medical devices, and civic infrastructure, must interact with the physical world. More advanced systems, such as unmanned autonomous systems, don’t just interact but also perceive important structural and dynamic aspects of their operational environment. To become interactive, an autonomous system must be aware of its physical environment and whereabouts, as well as its current internal status. This ability helps software-intensive systems sense, draw inferences, and react by exhibiting self-adaptation. As software is used for more pervasive and critical applications, support for self-adaptation is increasingly seen as necessary in avoiding costly disruptions for repair, maintenance and evolution of systems. A common understanding about the process of self-adaptation is the ability of a system to autonomously monitor its behavior and eventually modify the same according to changes in the operational environment or in the system itself. A good example of self-adaptive systems can be addressed to contemporary robotics systems that rely on the most recent advances in automation and robotic technologies to promote autonomy and self-adaptation to robotized systems.

The paradigm of self-adaptive systems is closely related to AI, which makes the research and development of such systems extremely challenging and demanding new approaches that can efficiently tackle the problems of expressing autonomy requirements, designing and implementing self-adaptive features, and efficiently testing self-adaptive behavior.

This journal seeks contributions from leading experts from research and practice of self-adaptive systems that will provide the connection between theory and practice with the ultimate goal to bring both the science and industry closer to the so-called "autonomic culture” and successful realization of self-adaptive systems. Both theoretical and applied contributions related to the relevance and potential of engineering methods, approaches and tools for self-adaptive systems are particularly welcome. This applies to application areas and technologies such as:

  • adaptable security and privacy;
  • adaptable user interfaces;
  • autonomic computing;
  • dependable computing;
  • embedded systems;
  • genetic algorithms;
  • knowledge representation and reasoning;
  • machine learning;
  • mobile ad-hoc networks;
  • mobile and autonomous robots;
  • multi-agent systems;
  • peer-to-peer applications;
  • sensor networks;
  • service-oriented architectures;
  • ubiquitous computing.

It also hold for many research fields, which have already investigated some aspects of self-adaptation from their own perspective, such as fault-tolerant computing, distributed systems, biologically inspired computing, distributed artificial intelligence, integrated management, robotics, knowledge-based systems, machine learning, control theory, etc.

Internet of Things

The "Internet of Things (IoT)" has emerged as an important research activity in the past few years. The Internet is evolving towards interconnecting potentially trillions of communicating devices, a multi-fold order of increase from the current generation Internet. There are several ongoing projects and prototype implementation dealing with various IoT based applications, including those in Smart Cities, Smart Grid, Healthcare and other domains.

Taking Innovation Management Training to The Next Level

Taking Innovation Management Training to The Next Level

As we know companies look to develop new and sustained revenue streams they are expanding the resources and activities associated with their innovation programs to form fully developed corporate ecosystems that support and drive innovation. There is an important topic that is often missing from innovation management training / online learning education programs: How to build effective employee networks that support employees who have been trained around with new innovation skills.
Various networks are designed to further engage employees in your innovation program, including participants from online learning innovation training programs, the following activities from across the corporate innovation ecosystem might be considered as tools to further engage network members:

Exclusive access to additional training
Exclusive challenges/ contests
Networking groups and forums (such as an annual conference)
Communicate to them directly
Exclusive access to materials, reports and information
Recognition through plaques, notification in publications (online and offline), avatars, etc.
Exclusive access to leadership planning and development sessions (network participants could be invited to attend leadership meetings)
Access to industry conferences and events
Priority access to work on ideas in development, through an ideas marketplace feature, with a goal of increasing the flow of activity
Credit for time spent working on the development of innovative ideas
Access to funding pool for new idea development
Position them as moderators / facilitators for future training sessions
Business book distribution and book club sessions
Exclusive opportunities to meet with leadership and discuss issues relevant to the organization

It is internationally recognized that future healthcare systems will be supported by pervasive healthcare systems in order to target the upcoming societal health challenges. Pervasive Health and Technology (PHT) Journal is a cross-disciplinary journal focusing on issues related to development, delivery and management of pervasive healthcare and the impact of technology within future healthcare systems. The journal aims to become an information source and to create a community of shared interests between health professionals, technologists, patients and other professionals related to pervasive healthcare.

The journal will present and discuss issues pertaining to personal electronic health assistants, health crowdsourcing, data mining and knowledge management, needs of patients, disease prevention and awareness, electronic and mobile health platforms including design, implementation and evaluation of supporting hardware and software in ambulant and hospital workflows, needs of physicians, nurses and other healthcare staff.

PHT seeks novel contributions in the areas including, but not limited to:

  • Pervasive Healthcare Management: data quality, standards and interoperability, security and privacy
  • Understanding healthcare actors: patients, physicians, nurses, carers and other health stakeholders
  • Knowledge representation and reasoning: interpreting health data from daily life, user modeling and personalization
  • Application of pervasive healthcare technologies and out of lab case studies: health/wellbeing promotion and disease prevention, telemedicine, independent living
  • Public health approaches and large-scale health initiatives: health crowdsourcing, disease prevention
  • Economic impact of pervasive healthcare systems when targeting societal health challenges: business cases, cost analysis, impact on society
