*ORGANIZED IN CONJUNCTION WITH ARES 2010 CONFERENCE
*IEEE CS PROCEEDINGS
*OUTSTANDING PROGRAM COMMITTEE
*SEVERAL WORKSHOPS ARE HELD WITHIN THE CONFERENCE

***Aim***

The aim of the conference is to deliver a platform of scientific interaction between the three interwoven
challenging areas of research and development of future ICT-enabled applications:

    * Software Intensive Systems
    * Complex systems
    * Intelligent Systems 

***Scope***

Networks of today are going through a rapid evolution. Different kinds of systems with different characteristics
are emerging and they are integrating in heterogeneous networks. For these reasons, there are many interconnection
problems which may occur at different levels in the hardware and software design of communicating entities and
communication networks. These kinds of networks need to manage an increasing usage demand, provide support for
a significant number of services, guarantee their QoS, and optimize the utilization of network resources.
Therefore, architectures and algorithms in these networks become very complex and it seems imperative
to focus on new models and methods as well as mechanisms, which can enable the network to perform adaptive
behaviors. Many new computing technologies have emerged as new paradigms for solving complex problems
by enabling large-scale aggregation and sharing of computational, data and other geographically distributed
resources. Rapid advances are being reported by many researchers and forums as regards understanding
numerous issues in such paradigms, from theoretic to application aspects. Moreover, the continuous development
of Internet and the construction of new infrastructures are making possible the development of large scale
applications from many fields of science and engineering.

To deal with complexity, we should construct physically instantiated systems that can perceive, understand,
and interact with their environment, but also evolve in order to achieve human-like performance in activities
requiring context-specific knowledge. This is far beyond the current state of the art and will remain so
for many years to come. Therefore, many research efforts are required to make headway towards this vision.
The strategic challenges are motivated by recent research in the field of intelligent systems, robotics,
neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and cognitive sciences. In recent years, a large community
of researchers has begun to realize the importance of brain-body interaction for understanding intelligence
and its central role in a wide range of processes including perception, object manipulation, movement,
and high-level cognition.

The research challenges include theoretical frameworks based on the notions of embodiment, the dynamical
systems metaphor, complete agents rather than individual components, self-reconfiguration and self-repair,
morphology and development. Progress in the theoretical underpinnings of embodied intelligence will have
strong technological implications in areas including robotics, actuator technology, materials,
self-assembling systems. Research in intelligent and cognitive systems is an interdisciplinary
field requiring the cooperation of researchers from artificial intelligence, neuroscience
(including cognitive and computational), psychology (cognitive and developmental),
linguistics, developmental biology, robotics (and engineering in general), biomechanics, and dynamical systems.
Software has become a central part of a rapidly growing range of applications, products and services from all
sectors of economic activity. Systems in which software interacts with other software, systems, devices,
sensors and with people are called software-intensive systems. Examples include large-scale heterogeneous
systems, embedded systems for automotive and avionics applications, telecommunications, wireless ad hoc systems,
business applications with an emphasis on web services. Our daily activities increasingly depend on complex
software-intensive systems that are becoming ever more distributed, heterogeneous, decentralized and
inter-dependent, and that are operating more and more in dynamic and often unpredictable environments.

There exist different kinds of complexity in the development of software. Software systems grew larger,
the focus shifted from the complexity of developing algorithms to the complexity structuring large systems,
and then to the additional complexities in building distributed, concurrent systems. In the next ten to fifteen
years we will have to face another level of complexity arising from the fact that systems have to
operate in large, open and non-deterministic environments: the complexity of knowledge, interaction
and adaptation. Instead of developing computer-oriented systems where people have to adapt to the computer
we have to develop human-oriented systems into which computers integrate seamlessly.
Also, the requirements for software quality will dramatically increase. But our current methods are
not sufficient to deal with adaptive software in a dynamic environment, especially not for large systems
with complex interactions. We need to develop practically useful and theoretically well founded principles,
methods and tools for engineering future software-intensive systems.
All the complex systems depend on software that controls the behavior of individual components and
the interaction between components, and on software which interacts with other software, systems,
devices, sensors and with people. In other words: they depend on software-intensive systems.
