* Call for Participation
* 6th International Workshop on Self-organizing Systems
* Main technical sponsor: the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP)
* Technical co-sponsor: the European Network of Excellence Euro-NF
* Delft, The Netherlands
* March 15-16, 2012

We cordially invite you to participate in IFIP IWSOS 2012.

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 goal of the IWSOS workshops is to bring together leading international researchers and practitioners to create a visionary forum for discussing the future of self-organization. IWSOS addresses theoretical aspects of self-organization as well as applications in communication and computer networks and complex systems.

The following key topics will be addressed:
- 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
- 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
- Control of self-organizing systems
- Decentralized power management in the smart grid
- Self-organizing group and pattern formation
- Self-organizing mechanisms for task allocation, coordination and resource allocation
- Self-organizing information dissemination and content search
- Risks and limits of self-organization

IFIP IWSOS 2012 is a two-day workshop that features two keynote talks given by:
1.	Prof. Shlomo Havlin, Bar-Ilan University, Israel
2.	Prof. Karl Aberer, EPFL, Switzerland
The first day of the workshop will focus on presenting new research contributions in the field of self-organizing systems, while the second day revolves around short paper presentations, panel discussions, and interaction with the workshop participants.
