I have two papers accepted for presentation at the workshops of the 11th IEEE International Conference on Self-adaptive and Self-organising Systems (SASO), which will be held in Tucson, Arizona, in September 2017. The first, Social and Asocial Learning in Collective Action Problems: The Rise and Fall of Socially-Beneficial Behaviour, with Anikó Ekárt, explores the impact of institutions and learning on each other. The second, Self-Integrating and Self-Improving Systems Must Be Socially Sensitive, asks how this can be integrated into the framework developed at last year's Dagstuhl seminar, and published here.

We have had a second paper, Future of Camera Networks: Staying Smart in a Chaotic World accepted for publication at the 11th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC 2017). This paper is a collaboration between the partners on the EU-funded SOLOMON project, including industry leaders in body-worn video, Edesix. It reviews the state of the art and upcoming challenges in mobile smart camera networks.

Our paper, Online Multi-object k-coverage with Mobile Smart Cameras was accepted for publication at the 11th ACM/IEEE International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (ICDSC 2017), to be held at Stanford University, USA, in September 2017.

Along with post-doctoral researcher Lukas Esterle, I attended the workshop on Self-aware Cyber-Physical Systems, at Cyber-Physical Systems Week in Pittsburgh, USA. I was part of the organising team, and chaired the closing panel session. Lukas presented his work from the Horizon 2020 funded Marie S. Curie project on mobile smart camera networks, SOLOMON.

Our paper, An Architecture for the Autonomic Curation of Crowdsourced Knowledge, has been accepted for publication in the Springer journal Cluster Computing.

I gave a talk, Self-aware Computing Systems: From Psychology to Engineering at DATE (The Design, Automation & Test in Europe conference) 2017. The talk was part of a "hot topics" session on self-awareness in computing: concepts and applications. The slides are available here, and the accompanying paper here.

Our paper, Towards the Optimization of Power and Bandwidth Consumption in Mobile-Cloud Hybrid Applications was accepted for publication at the Third International Workshop on Mobile Cloud Computing systems, Management, and Security (MCSMS-2017), to be held at the IEEE International Conference on Fog and Mobile Edge Computing (FMEC) 2017.

I gave an invited seminar talk at the Computer Science Department at the University of Exeter. The title of the talk was "Self-aware Computing Systems: From Psychology to Engineering".

I have just returned from a research visit to Pittsburgh, USA, where I gave invited talks at Carnegie Mellon University and at the ACM Embedded Systems Week conference, on the topic of self-aware computing.

Our paper, Offline and Online Time in Sequential Decision-Making Problems, has been accepted for publication at the Computational Intelligence for Dynamic and Uncertain Environments Symposium, at the IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence 2016. It will be presented at the symposium in Athens, Greece, in December 2016.
