Please consider to contribute and distribute to the appropriate groups the
following Invitation for submission to the special event on
"Self-adaptability and self-management of context-aware systems" [SELF]

Intended topics (but not limited to):

Novel approaches to modeling and representing context adaptability,
self-adaptability, and self-manageability
Models of computation for self-management context-aware systems
Use of MDA/MDD (Model Driven Architecture / Model Driven Development) for
context-aware systems
Design methods for self-adaptable context-aware systems
Applications of advanced modeling languages to context self-adaptability
Methods for managing adding context to existing systems and
context-conflict free systems
Architectures and middleware models for self-adaptable context-aware systems
Models of different adaptation and self-adaptation mechanisms
(component-based adaptation approach, aspect oriented approach, etc.)
System stability in the presence of context inconsistency
Learning and self-adaptability of context-aware systems
Business considerations and organizational modeling of self-adaptable
context-aware systems
Performance evaluation of self-adaptable context-aware systems
