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 types represent novel categories of software‐intensive systems insofar that they possess significantly different properties than traditional information systems or embedded systems. For example, their highly connected and context‐aware nature gives rise to changes in their runtime behaviour, stressing the need for runtime adaptation and reorganization, which must be considered during the requirements phase. This poses new and unforeseen challenges for requirements engineering such that networked self‐adaptive systems can be systematically engineered.
The First 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 of requirements engineering under special consideration of self-adaptiveness and cyber physicality of systems.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Methods for Assessing the Requirements of SAS and CPS
- Context Analysis and Domain Modeling of SAS and CPS
- Tools and Approaches for the Specification of SAS and CPS
- Tools and Approaches for Assessing The Performance of SAS and CPS
- Approaches to Reuse Components of SAS and CPS
- Design Space Exploration and Communication Strategies of CPS
- Requirements Satisfaction Monitoring at Runtime for SAS
- Requirements-based Performance Analysis and Improvement
- Runtime Adaptation and Decision Making
- Dealing with Runtime Uncertainty during Requirements Engineering
- Ad-hoc networking of cyber physical entities and services
- Requirements-based Quality Assurance for SAS and CPS
- Benefits and Application Areas of SAS and CPS
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.
