This article provides an overall view of the research that has been done in the context of self-managing software within the SMScom project. We start by the motivations that inspired the research, and then we focus on a reference framework that explains its conceptual underpinnings and on the paradigm shift it calls for in the way we currently engineer software. Next we focus on some specific research results achieved at the architecture and verification support level.

This research has been partially funded by the European Commission, Programme IDEAS-ERC, Project 227977-SMScom.
