Self-Awareness in Reconfigurable Computing Systems

Call for Papers

Self-awareness is an emerging field of research in computing that considers systems and applications that gather and maintain information about their current state and environment, reason about their behavior, and adapt themselves if necessary. Reconfigurable computing systems have the inherent benefit of supporting changing functionality and behavior over time.

This special issue will be open for interested authors in self-awareness area to submit their manuscripts. It would also cover the best papers from the 2nd Workshop on Self-Awareness in Reconfigurable Computing Systems (SRCS'13), which will be held on September 5, 2013. The workshop focuses on how to harness the benefits of reconfigurable technology for systems that automatically adapt to changing requirements or environments and that include aspects such as learning and reasoning. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Concepts and foundations of self-aware systems
  • Architectures, control, instrumentation, and infrastructure for self-aware systems
  • Algorithmic approaches for self-awareness
  • Tools for engineering self-aware systems
  • Advanced autonomous and self-adaptive systems
  • Self-awareness and adaptation in heterogeneous and distributed systems
  • Run-time techniques for adaptive behavior, including dynamic reconfiguration
  • Applications using self-awareness or self-adaptivity
  • Emergence of self-awareness in adaptive systems

Before submission, authors should carefully read over the journal’s Author Guidelines, which are located at Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at according to the following timetable:
