SEAMS focuses on applying software engineering to develop and advance methods, techniques, processes and tools that can be used to support self-* properties such as self-protection, self-healing, self-optimization, and self-configuration.

The current trends in the global Covid-19 pandemic make it very unlikely that we will be able to hold a physical conference in Madrid in May 2021 with sufficient assurances of safety. Hence, it is with great sadness that​ we announce that SEAMS 2021, along with ICSE and other co-located events, will be held virtually this year.
