Organic Computing is a research field emerging around the conviction that problems of organization in complex systems in computer science, telecommunications, neurobiology, molecular biology, ethology can be tackled scientifically in a unified way, by means of which progress in understanding aspects of organization in either field can be fruitful in the others.
Problems of organization become pressing as artifacts increase in complexity regarding both hardware and software. It is becoming inevitable to shift much of the burden of organization into the machines themselves. This brings up the problem of keeping their self-organization controllable. This requires interfaces for user interaction on a high level, which hide the rise in inner complexity from the users. An "Organic Computing System" is a technical system, which adapts dynamically to the current conditions of its environment.
From the computer science point of view, the apparent ease with which living systems solve computationally difficult organizational problems makes it inevitable to adopt strategies observed in nature for creating information processing machinery.
For this workshop, we invite papers which explicitly address the goals of Organic Computing and describe novel results in projects using Organic Computing methodology.
