Visiting PhD student Nicola Capodieci, along with supervisors Prof. Emma Hart from Edinburgh Napier University and Dr Giacomo Cabri from the Universita di Modena e Reggio Emilia, Italy, won the best paper award as SASO 2014
, the IEEE Self-Organising and Self-Adaptive Systems Conference in London.
Their paper Artificial Immune System driven evolution in
examined swarm chemistry systems, providing a novel way of enabling the system to adapt and discover and detect new architectures. Their work adds to current understanding in the fields of emergent systems and self-expression in software systems.
IEEE SASO is a well-respected conference with an acceptance rate of 25% for papers, so this is an excellent achievement for Nicola.
