Researchers and engineers trade findings and insights into the development of hardware and systems that can maintain or improve their performance in the context of internal or external changes such as uncertainties and variations during fabrication, modifications in the operational environment, different users and preferences, or changing standards and requirements. It is such capability that allows the transformation of automatic mining equipment or other benign devices into planet destroying satellites, as thoroughly documented in science fiction. Over 60 papers discuss such topics as the evolution of impulse bursts noise filters, the synergistic reconfiguration of adaptive precision chemical classifiers, a substrate integrated fluidic compensation mechanism for deformable antennas, and flexible database synthesis through arithmetically optimized operation chaining.
