Software systems are increasingly used in application domains characterised by uncertain environments, evolving requirements and unexpected failures; sudden system malfunctioning raises serious issues of security, safety, loss of comfort or revenue. During operation, these systems will likely need to deal with several unpredictable situations including variations in system performance, sudden changes in system workload and component failures. These situations can cause deviation from the

Through using closed-loop control, typically realized with software, intelligent and autonomous software systems can dynamically adapt themselves, without any or with limited human involvement, by identifying abnormal situations, analysing alternative adaptation options, and finally, self-adapting to a suitable new configuration. This report summarises the research carried out during SEfIAS GI Dagstuhl seminar which provided a forum for strengthening interaction and collaboration for early-career researchers and practitioners from the research communities of SEAMS, ICAC/ICCAC, SASO, Self-Aware Computing and AAMAS.
