The main scope of the workshop is to present the latest advances of autopoietic systems in heterogeneous fields. The workshop would cover the whole range of theoretical and practical aspects, technologies and systems, and its aim is to bring together specialists to exchange ideas and promote fruitful discussions on:


·        self-organizing into desirable structure and patterns;

·        self-configuration following high level specification;

·        self-optimization to adapt to changing environment without direct human input;

·        self-healing to recover from faults;

·        self-protection against malicious attacks.

Therefore, taking into account the theories on autopoiesis, a discussion between researchers from all disciplines is expected. This includes formal, cognitive, engineering and philosophical aspects of autopoiesis. The topics and areas include, but are not limited to:

Self-adaptive and self-organizing Information Systems:

·        auto-configuration,

·        viable systems,

·        adaptability, learning and self-production of information systems,

·        QoS (Quality of Service) for self-producting systems,

·        self-organizing geographic connectivity maps,

·        self-organizing artificial intelligence.

·        self-tuning databases.

Self-adaptive and self-organizing Communication Systems:

·        evolutionary networks,

·        interacting autonomous systems,

·        self-maintained networks,

·        self-organizing data visualization,

·        policy-based self-management.

Self-adaptive and self-organizing Social Systems:

·        virtual organizations,

·        socio-economic cybernetics,

·        self-organizing social networks.
