Abstract or Description

The goal of this roadmap paper is to summarize the state-of the-art and to identify critical challenges for the systematic software engineering of self-adaptive systems. The paper is partitioned into four parts, one for each of the identified essential views of self-adaptation: modelling dimensions, requirements, engineering, and assurances. For each view, we present the state-of-the-art and the challenges that our community must address. This roadmap paper is a result of the Dagstuhl Seminar 08031 on “Software Engineering for Self-Adaptive Systems,” which took place in January 2008.
