The 2nd Awareness Summer School (AWASS 2013)
IMT Institute for Advanced Studies
Lucca, Italy
June 24-28, 2013

The 2nd Awareness Summer School is aimed at graduate/PhD students, and
researchers from different disciplines, this summer school will cover
theoretical, practical, and technological issues related to autonomic
self-awareness and its various facets.

The school is organized by the Awareness Coordination Action (CA), that
supports research under the FP7 FET Proactive Initiative, in particular
within the research projects ASCENS (Autonomic Service-Component
Ensembles), EPICS ( Engineering Proprioception in Computing Systems),
ORGANIC COMPUTING (Organic Computing Initiative), RECOGNITION (Relevance
and cognition for self-awareness in a content-centric Internet), SAPERE
(Self-aware Pervasive Service Ecosystems), SYMBRION (Symbiotic Evolutionary
Robot Organisms), and CoCoRo (Collective Cognitive Robots)
