 Call For Papers
 SAAAS 2016 -
 Software Architectures for Adaptive Autonomous Systems
 It is widely acknowledged that we are heading to the IoT era, an era
 where we will see a proliferation of devices that are intended to aid
 human activity.  Correspondingly, their management and operations
 will increase in complexity, so much so that it will be impossible to
 manage them with current methodologies. One of the ways to deal with
 this situation is to create autonomous systems that are self-managed
 and self-operating.  To do this, one has to write intelligent
 software that leverages the learnings from AI and cognitive
 technologies research. Further, to industrialize this will require us
 to create easily composable pieces of software that provide the core
 building blocks for creating such software systems.
 The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers and
 practitioners addressing these challenges and to expose the audience
 to the state-of-the-art in this field.  It will comprise of invited
 papers as well as a few invited talks in the area.
 We invite technical papers describing original and unpublished
 results of conceptual, empirical, and experimental work in the area
 of autonomous systems. The workshop will provide a platform for
 researchers and practitioners to meet and share cutting-edge
 advancements in the field.  Submissions are invited in all aspects of
 building autonomous systems including but not limited to, the
 . Multi-agent systems
 . AI planning techniques
 . Dynamic planning
 . Execution monitoring and control systems
 . Process specification and management
 . Leveraging analytics for autonomous systems
 . Role of verification and simulations

 All manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee and
 evaluated on originality, relevance of the problem to the workshop,
 technical strength, rigor in analysis, quality of results, and
 organization and clarity of presentation of the paper. Authors are
 highly encouraged to list the key contributions of their paper. This
 should be in a separate paragraph in the introduction to the paper.
 Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is
 not currently under review for any other conference or journal.
 Papers should not exceed 6 pages for the main text (including
 figures, appendix etc) in standard ACM format((hyperlink:
