** The IWSOS'12 program will contain two keynote speakers

Prof. Shlomo Havlin, Department of Physics, Bar-Ilan University, Israel
Prof. Karl Aberer, Distributed Information Systems Laboratory, EPFL, Switzerland

** Scope and Key Topics

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 topics of the workshop include:

- 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

** Poster Submissions and Student Research Competition

To complement the main technical programme of IWSOS 2012, the workshop
is soliciting submissions of posters that will be presented in a poster session at

the workshop. This session will provide a platform to present
and discuss early research work, preliminary results, out-of-the-box ideas,
project or thesis descriptions, and recent research highlights.

The poster session will as well provide a special opportunity for PhD
students to obtain feedback on their work. Posters with a student as main author
will participate in the student research competition. A winner will be elected
by the conference chairs and be officially awarded at the conference banquet.

Posters should be submitted as a single PDF file to iwsos2012 at gmail.com<mailto:iwsos2012 at gmail.com>.
The submission should be formatted as a one page large poster.
Please indicate in the submission email whether the poster
should participate in the student research competition including the
name of the student presenter and whether you would
like to share your poster, if accepted, on the workshop website.
One author is expected to register and to prepare and
present the poster at the workshop.

** Important Dates

Poster submission deadline: January 23, 2012
Notification of acceptance: February 6, 2012
