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.
