Dear colleagues,

This is the 2nd Call for Abstracts for the Seventh International 
Workshop on Guided Self-Organisation (GSO-2014) to be held from December 
16-18, 2014 in Freiburg, Germany.


The workshop will bring together researchers from a richly diverse 
background who share interest in understanding and designing 
self-organising systems. Of particular interest are well-founded, but 
general methods for characterizing such systems in a principled way with 
the view of ultimately allowing them to be guided toward prespecified 
goals. Information theory, nonlinear dynamics and graph theory are core 
to many of these methods, and quantifying complexity and its sources is 
a common theme.

This year, the workshop is organised in collaboration with the 
BrainLinks-BrainTools cluster of excellence at University of Freiburg ( 
https://www.brainlinks-braintools.uni-freiburg.de/ ), and one focus 
theme will be guided self-organisation in neural systems.

Submissions to the workshop are extended abstracts (one-two pages). If 
interested in participating, send an extended abstract (by September 
7th, 2014) by email to:

jboedeck at informatik dot uni-freiburg dot de

The notifications are expected by September 21st, 2014.

Authors of accepted submissions will present the content to the workshop 
(scheduled 30 minutes presentation). It is expected that post-workshop 
publication of selected papers will follow in a special journal issue 
(as has been the case for previous GSO workshops). Please consult the 
website above and also http://guided-self.org/ for more information.

Best wishes,
