Objectives and Scope

Nowadays software systems are distributed, concurrent, mobile, and often involve the composition of heterogeneous components and standalone (micro)services. Service coordination, service orchestration and self-adaptation constitute the core characteristics of distributed and service-oriented systems. Theoretical and practical approaches to modelling and reasoning about (self-)adaptive behaviour help to simplify the development of complex distributed systems, enable their validation and evaluation, and improve interoperability, reusability and maintainability of such systems. The goal of the FOCLASA workshop is to gather researchers and practitioners of the aforementioned fields, to share and identify common problems, and to devise general novel solutions.

Topics

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) both theoretical and practical solutions for what follows:

Cloud/fog/edge computing and large-scale distributed systems

Business processes and concurrent system modelling

Peer-to-peer and multi-agent systems, and blockchains

Languages and models for component and service interaction, their semantics, expressiveness, validation and verification, type checking, static and dynamic analysis

Dynamic software architectures, self-adaptive, self-monitoring and self-organizing systems

Coordination, orchestration, composition and adaptation of components, services or microservices

Quality-of-service observation, storage, history-based analysis in self-adaptive systems
