Engineering of Autonomic and Autonomous Systems (EASe) Mini-Workshop



EASe meeting is dedicated to formulating and advancing methods, techniques and tools for the engineering of autonomic (self-managing) and autonomous (self-directing) systems. This would be the 13th EASe meeting. EASe/AA-SES has run at SMC-IT five times since 2006 including the previous edition in 2019.

The meeting is devoted to the analysis, design, development, deployment, and evolution of autonomic/self-managing and autonomous systems for computer-based systems. Such computer-based systems – also called cyber-physical systems –are characterized by functional as well as dependability requirements that mandate the tight integration of information processing and physical processes.

Therefore, EASe aims to integrate several disciplines, including software engineering, systems engineering, control theory and so forth, into a complete systems self-managing engineering approach. EASe will address many facets that include system modeling; requirements engineering; simulation, verification and validation; architectures, software and hardware platforms, and infra structures; dependability, safety, and security; human computer interfacing; large-scale systems and system integration; engineering processes; evolution all for Autonomic/Self-Managing and Autonomous Systems.

The meeting provides a bridge between industry and academia, blending academic research and industrial developments. Reports of practical solutions, trends and new system characteristics for EASe, taking an integrated systems approach, may include self-managing application in Aeronautics and Space domain
