ASCENS results were presented at the ICT 2013 - Europe's biggest event for research and innovation in information and communication technologies.

ASCENS contribution in the highlights of the opening of ICT 2013 (3:01-3:30)

More than 5000 researchers, entrepreneurs, innovators, industry representatives, young people and politicians got together from November 6-8 in Vilnius, Lithuania under the lemma Create, Connect and Grow.

This conference and exhibition organized by the European Commission in partnership with the Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the EU - provided excellent opportunities for networking.

Our robot competition demo attracted a lot of visitors, which were interested also in the general ASCENS engineering approach for autonomic ensembles.

The aim of the demonstration was to show the advantages of relying on autonomic systems, operating in changing or partially unknown  environments and the analysis of such autonomic systems. In the exhibit we presented modeling techniques for autonomous systems at three different abstraction levels.

1) We had two real robots one of which is programmed according to our autonomic paradigm and another was controllable via a joystick by visitors. Visitors had to compete with the autonomic robots experiencing the robots' perspective.

2) We showed a robot simulator (ARGoS) that let visitors appreciate the adaptive behavior of robot swarms.

3) We provided also experimental results about how formal methods enable a designer to predict the behavior of robots and provide measures of the quality of the proposed solutions.
