The increasing complexity of contemporary embedded computing systems requires the use of self-management in order to handle unforeseen changes in both hardware and application environments (i.e., hardware/software defects, resource changes, and non-continual feature usage). Moreover, often these systems are distributed, running on processor architectures with multiple cores, which may require self-organization to ensure efficiency and reliability. Real-time properties are another key issue in many complex systems. Adaptive and self-organized properties extent the area of operations and improves the efficiency of the system resources at the cost to introduce additional complexity, overhead, and resource requirements. Consequently, real-time adaptive systems must be careful analyzed, designed, and built taken into account the right tradeoffs between flexibility and complexity, while accomplishing time-constrains. The combination of the flexibility and uncertain behavior of self-organizing systems with time-predictability is a grand challenge. Therefore, substantial research has been done in the last years to address the so-called Self-X features (e.g., self-configuration, self-optimization, self-adaptation, self-healing, and self-protection). This fact has as resutl that self-organizing computing systems become an established research nowadays as they promise to handle the increasing complexity resulting from highly distributed systems and ubiquitous applications. In addition, real-time properties are required in many areas (such as cyber physical systems) self-organizing computing systems are dealing with. Combining the flexible and and uncertain behavior of self-organizing systems with time-predictability necessary for real-time systems is a grand challenge
