Self-awareness is an emerging field of research in computing that 
considers systems and applications that gather and maintain information 
about their current state and environment, reason about their behaviour, 
and adapt themselves if necessary.  Reconfigurable devices, such FPGAs, 
have the inherent benefit of allowing adaptation of functionality at run 
time. However, it is still an open question how we can harness the 
benefits of reconfigurable technology for systems that automatically 
adapt to changing requirements or environments, and that include aspects 
such as learning and reasoning.
The SRCS workshop focuses on the topic of self-awareness in the context 
of reconfigurable hardware. The list of topics includes but is not 
necessarily limited to:
- Concepts and foundations of self-aware systems.
- Architectures, control and infrastructure for self-aware systems.
- Algorithmic approaches for self-awareness.
- Engineering self-aware reconfigurable systems.
- Advanced autonomous and self-adaptive systems.
- Applications using self-awareness or self-adaptivity.
Submissions should be made in form of a 2-page abstract. Authors of 
accepted submissions will also be invited to submit an extended version 
to a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology 
and Systems (ACM TRETS).
