3rd International Workshop on Self-Organizing Systems
- Self-Organizing Networks and Networked Systems -

December 10-12, 2008
Vienna, Austria

Submission deadline (full papers): June 22, 2008

IWSOS 2008 is the third workshop in a series of annual workshops dedicated to self-organization in networks and networked systems. The necessity for and expected benefit of self-organization is caused by the growing scale, complexity, and heterogeneity of future networked systems, like the future Internet. For example, these networks will consist of interconnected infrastructure-based, mobile ad-hoc, and sensor networks that could be spontaneously deployed in hostile environments, have a dynamic population and a potentially short life time. In spite of this, there will be stringent user requirements, such as resilience and real-time guarantees. Although self-organization is desirable for these kinds of networks, it is not yet clear to what extent self-organization can be exploited.

Research into networked systems has recently started to systematically investigate self-organization, which has lead to a multitude of open research issues. The applicability of well-known self-organizing techniques to specific networks and networked systems has to be investigated, as well as adaptations and novel approaches inspired by, e.g., cooperation in nature and evolutionary dynamics, sociology, and game theory. Additionally, models originating from areas like feedback control and complex system's research, are required for these networked systems in order to analyze their controllability and emergent behavior. Aspects of engineering self-organizing networked systems should be studied that discuss paradigms like programmable networks, and tools and frameworks for deploying, testing, and monitoring self-organizing networks. The role of self-organization in the future Internet and the impact on its architecture is an important topic, as well as the application of self-organization in future intelligent transportation systems and vehicular ad-hoc networks.

Building on the success of its predecessors, this workshop aims at bringing together leading international researchers to create a visionary forum for investigating the potential of self-organization for networked systems by including the following key topics (not a restricted list):

Key Topics

 

  • Self-organization and self-management
