Track: Workshop on Adaptive Technology
The 8th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies
May 16-19, 2017, Madeira, Portugal
Adaptive approach aims to aid the solution search of practical problems through auto-modifiable mathematical abstractions such as adaptive models and devices. In other words, the adaptive approach can be described as an auto-modifiable formalism.
An adaptive device is composed by two main aspects: subjacent and adaptive. The subjacent aspect is an rule-based device such as an automaton or an grammar. The adaptive aspect is a meta-level rule-based device that can change the configuration or topology of subjacent aspect. The adaptive aspect has both adaptive declarations and actions. Adaptive declaration is a pre-condition to an adaptive action; the adaptive action can modify the subjacent aspects´s rules through query, inclusion and exclusion. This is the mechanism that allows the auto-modification of adaptive device.
The first adaptive device was applied upon an structured stack automaton. Since then there were been proposed several adaptive formalisms, tests and applications using statecharts, Markov chains, decision tables, grammars, trees, etc. Those are used in robotic, artifical intelligence, compiler construction, etc.
This workshop is a development of a 10+ years national event held at University of São Paulo (Brazil) called WTA. It aims to provide a proper forum to discuss adaptivity both on theory and application. It is expected the presentation of high-quality, original research covering all aspects of adaptivity, its methodologies, design, analysis, implementation, verification, and case-studies. Original papers that embraces new and emerging research ideas about adaptivity are also welcome.
