*  Call for Poster Abstracts
*  IWSOS 2013
*  7th International Workshop on Self-organizing Systems
*  Palma de Mallorca, Spain
*  May 9-10, 2013
*  Technical co-sponsors: IFIP TC6 WG6.2, EC FP7 NoE EINS
*  Poster Abstract Submission Deadline: March 15, 2013

We are looking for submissions of research posters, from both
academia and industry, describing research, exciting new research
projects, and encouraging preliminary results on self-organizing

** Poster Abstract Submission
The submission should be an extended abstract of two pages in
two-column format. All submitted abstracts will undergo a peer
review process. Accepted posters must be presented at the conference
and will be published electronically in a book (ISBN-indexed) named
"Emerging Ideas on Self-Organizing Systems".

Poster abstracts should use the following format:

Poster abstracts can be submitted via:

** Scope

The main themes of IWSOS 2013 are from the fields of techno-social
systems and networks-of-networks with their unique and complex blend
of cognitive, social, and technological aspects. We will analyse how
these systems self-organize, acquire their structure, and evolve.
Thus, we aim to advance our understanding of such key infrastructures
in our societies and, more generally, of these sorts of
self-organizational processes in nature.

We are further interested in learning how to engineer such
self-organizing networked systems to have desirable properties
including dependability, predictability, and resilience in the face
of the inevitable challenges that they face.

Building on the success of its predecessors, this multi-disciplinary
workshop aims at bringing together leading international researchers
from complex systems, distributed systems, and communication networks
to create a visionary forum for discussing the future of
self-organization in networked systems. We invite the submission of
manuscripts that present original research results on the themes of
self-organization in techno-social systems and networks-of-networks.

** Key Topics

The workshop scope includes, but is not limited to, the following
topical areas of self-organizing systems:
- 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
- Self-organization in techno-social systems
- Self-organized social computation
- Self-organized communication systems
- Citizen Science
- Techniques and tools for modeling self-organizing systems
- Tools to quantify self-organization
- Control and control parameters of self-organizing systems
- Phase transitions in self-organizing systems
- Robustness and adaptation in self-organizing systems
- Self-organization in complex networks such as peer-to-peer, sensor,
   ad-hoc, vehicular, and social networks
- Self-organization in socio-economic systems
- User and operator-related aspects of man-made self-organizing
- Self-organizing multi-service networks and multi-network services
- Methods for configuration and management of large, complex networks
- 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
- Social, cognitive, and semantic aspects of self-organization
- Evolutionary principles of the (future, emerging) Internet
- Decentralized power management in the smart grid
