ICSE 2020
Wed 24 June - Thu 16 July 2020

Save the Dates: June 29th – July 3rd, 2020 (PDF version)

The organizing committee of the 15th International Symposium on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems (SEAMS 2020) is pleased to announce that the symposium will take place online, following the cancellation of the physical conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Join us to recognize the work of our authors and organizing committee!


Following the example of many other conferences, we will have live sessions, in the timeframe June 29th – July 3rd, according to the schedule below. The sessions will start with a five-minute pitch presentation of each paper, after which the authors will answer questions about their work. The Q&A discussion will be moderated, and will cover both questions collected in advance and questions formulated during the session. Registered participants will have online access to the SEAMS proceedings, and to pre-recorded video presentations of the research papers from each session. The pre-recorded presentations will be made available on the SEAMS YouTube channel several days before the sessions.
