Special Session on 
Adaptation and Services: Agents, Methodologies and Applications - ASAMA 2018



This special session will provide the opportunity to present and discuss research in the intersection between service-oriented engineering and self-adaptive systems. Whereas classical service orientation focuses on the development of software systems by composition of reusable services, self-adaptation proved to be effective for implementing robust and flexible applications. The theory and practice of self-adaptation may be used for handling dynamic environments and for grating continuity of service also in case of unexpected changes of the operative context.


The special session ASAMA invites submissions in the area of self-adaptative services. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following: Agents for: Self-organizing, configuring, managing services Adaptive orchestration and choreography Decentralized feedback loop Dynamic Holons and Holarchies Methodologies for: Requirements elicitation techniques QoS Optimization Techniques Dynamic Architectures Definition Applications: Dynamic Workflows Internet of Things Socio-technical systems Mobile and Cloud computing Robotics Smart spaces

Luca Sabatucci 

Brief Bio
Luca Sabatucci held a doctoral degree in software engineering from the University of Palermo in 2008. Currently, he is a research scientist at the Italian National Research Council (CNR), working in Palermo, Italy. Principal interests are in the areas of Self- Adaptive Systems, Requirements Engineering, and Software Patterns. In the last six years, the main topic of research is related to self-adaptive techniques, in which he published several papers and won the best paper award at SEAMS 2015. He participated in the organization and in the program committee of various international conferences and workshops.

ICAART 2018 - 10th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence



The purpose of the International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the theory and applications in the areas of Agents and Artificial Intelligence. Two simultaneous related tracks will be held, covering both applications and current research work. One track focuses on Agents, Multi-Agent Systems and Software Platforms, Distributed Problem Solving and Distributed AI in general. The other track focuses mainly on Artificial Intelligence, Knowledge Representation, Planning, Learning, Scheduling, Perception Reactive AI Systems, and Evolutionary Computing and other topics related to Intelligent Systems and Computational Intelligence.

A substantial amount of research work is ongoing in these knowledge areas, in an attempt to discover appropriate theories and paradigms to use in real-world applications. Much of this important work is therefore theoretical in nature. However there is nothing as practical as a good theory, as Boltzman said many years ago, and some theories have indeed made their way into practice. Informatics applications are pervasive in many areas of Artificial Intelligence and Distributed AI, including Agents and Multi-Agent Systems; This conference intends to emphasize this connection, therefore, authors are invited to highlight the benefits of Information Technology (IT) in these areas. Ideas on how to solve problems using agents and artificial intelligence, both in R&D and industrial applications, are welcome. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of ICAART with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as tutorials dedicated to technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Additional information can be found at
