* Call for Papers
* IWSOS 2012
* 6th International Workshop on Self-organizing Systems
* Technical co-sponsors: IFIP, Euro-NF
* http://iwsos2012.ewi.tudelft.nl/
* Delft, The Netherlands
* March 15-16, 2012
* Paper Submission Deadline: October 26, 2011
** Scope
The main theme of the workshop is to discover the network science
behind self-organizing systems, to facilitate and advance the
understanding, learning, modeling, and analysis of self-organizational
processes in nature (e.g., metabolic, DNA, brain networks) and to apply
the knowledge of self-organization to man-made networks and systems.
The workshop scope includes, but is not limited to, the following topical
areas in self-organizing systems:
- Modeling & analysis
- Applications & service providers & management
- Risks and security
Building on the success of its predecessors, this workshop aims at
bringing together leading international researchers to create a visionary
forum for discussing the future of self-organization in networked systems.
To make IWSOS 2012 a success, we invite the submission of full or short
manuscripts that present original research results or research ideas on
the theme of self-organizing systems.
** Key Topics
- Design and analysis of self-organizing and self-managing systems
- Inspiring models of self-organization in nature and society
- Structure, characteristics and dynamics of self-organizing networks
- Evolutionary principles of the (future, emerging) Internet
- Techniques and tools for modeling self-organizing systems
- Robustness and adaptation in self-organizing systems
- Self-organization in complex networks like peer-to-peer, sensor,
  ad-hoc, vehicular and social networks
- User and operator-related aspects of man-made self-organizing systems
- Self-organizing multi-service networks and multi-network services
- Control of self-organizing systems
- Methods for configuration and management of large, complex networks
- Decentralized power management in the smart grid
- Self-protection, self-configuration, diagnosis, and healing
- Self-organizing group and pattern formation
- Self-organizing mechanisms for task allocation, coordination and
  resource allocation
- Self-organizing information dissemination and content search
- Security and safety in self-organizing networked systems
- Risks and limits of self-organization
- The human in the loop of self-organizing networks
** Important Dates
Submission deadline: October 26, 2011
Notification: December 14, 2011
Camera-ready papers due: January 04, 2012
Conference: March 15-16 2012
** Papers
IWSOS 2012 invites submission of full or short manuscripts that present
original research results or research ideas, and that have not been
previously published or are currently under review by another conference
or journal. Any previous or simultaneous publication of related material
should be explicitly noted in the submission. All papers must be submitted
in PDF format. Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members
of the international program committee and judged on originality,
significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness.
The Springer “LNCS Proceedings” style should be used for submission.
Templates for LaTeX and Word are available at http://tiny.cc/qiohy.
Full papers should describe original research results. Submissions should
be full-length papers up to 12 pages using the LNCS style (including
figures, references, and a short abstract).
Short Papers should be position papers, challenging papers, and papers
presenting first results. The papers must be up to 6 pages length (LNCS
style, including all figures and references), and must include a short
** Proceedings
The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in their Lecture Notes
in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one of the authors of each
accepted paper must attend IWSOS 2012 to present the paper.
