Subject: Call for Abstracts for the Third International Workshop on Guided
         Self-Organisation

The Third International Workshop on Guided Self-Organization (GSO-2010)
http://informatics.indiana.edu/larryy/gso3/

4-6 September 2010
Indiana University
Bloomington, Indiana, USA

Sponsors:  School of Informatics and Computing
          Center for Complex Networks and Systems Research

Research Aims and Topics:
The GSO-2010 workshop will bring together invited experts and researchers in
self-organizing systems, with particular emphasis on the information- and graph-
theoretic foundations of GSO and information dynamics in cognitive systems.

The GSO-2010 workshop is third in the GSO series. The First International
Workshop on Guided Self-Organisation (GSO-2008
<http://www.prokopenko.net/gso.html>) was held 24-27 November 2008 in Sydney,
Australia. It was followed by The Second International Workshop on Guided
Self-Organisation (GSO-2009
<http://www.mis.mpg.de/calendar/conferences/2009/gs09.html>) on August 18-20,
2009 in Leipzig, Germany.

The goal of GSO is to leverage the strengths of self-organization while still
being able to direct the outcome of the self-organizing process.  In its most
general form, GSO combines task-independent objectives (universal utility
functions) with task-specific constraints. One may consider different ways to
guide the process (dynamics) of self-organization, achieving a specific
increase in structure or function within a system. This guidance may be provided
by limiting the scope or extent of the self-organizing structures/functions,
specifying the rate of the internal dynamics, or simply selecting a subset of
all possible trajectories that the dynamics may take.

There have been a few recent attempts at formalizing aspects of GSO,
specifically within information theory and dynamical systems: empowerment,
information-driven evolution, robust overdesign, reinforcement-driven
homeokinesis, predictive information-based homeokinesis, interactive learning,
etc. What is common to many examples of GSO is the characterization of a
system-environment loop (e.g., sensorimotor or perception-action loop) in
information-theoretic terms. For instance, given an agent's behavior, the
empowerment measures the amount of Shannon information that the agent can
"inject into" its sensors through the environment, affecting future actions and
future perceptions. On the other hand, maximization of the predictive
information or excess entropy during a time interval enables an
adaptive/evolutionary change in controllers' logic in such a way that the system
becomes coordinated. Furthermore, methods relying on the use of predictive
information in a sensorimotor process may produce explicit learning rules for
the agent optimizing its behavior.

However, the lack of a common mathematical framework across multiple scales and
contexts leaves GSO methodology somehow vague, indicating a clear gap. Filling
this gap and identifying common principles of guidance are the main themes of
GSO workshops.

Program:
The program includes 3 days of presentations, each day with two or three keynote
talks (1 hour each), and 5-7 scheduled presentations (30 minutes each).

The following topics are of special interest: information-theoretic measures of
complexity, graph-theoretic metrics of networks, information-driven
self-organization (IDSO), applications of GSO to systems biology, computational
neuroscience, cooperative and modular robotics, sensor networks.

Submissions to the workshop are extended abstracts (one page). Authors of
accepted submissions will present the content to the workshop. 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). Selected papers
of GSO-2008 were published by the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) Journal,
in the Special Issue on Guided Self-Organization
<http://scitation.aip.org/dbt/dbt.jsp?KEY=HJFOA5&Volume=3&Issue=5> (full text
papers online at <http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/issues/183859/>). A special
issue <http://www.prokopenko.net/special-issue-gso-2009.html> of Theory in
Biosciences is under review with selected papers from GSO-2009.

Participation:
If you are interested in presenting, please email a one-page extended abstract
to the conference organizers.  If you are interested in attending, please send a
short email to the conference organizers announcing your intentions (so we can
adjust catering plans for coffee breaks and such).  Following the workshop, a
formal call for papers will be issued for a special journal issue.  The workshop
is free and open to all interested researchers, though for practical
considerations the total number of presenters will be limited to 21, and the
total number of attendees will be limited to 40.

Description:
This special issue aims to provide a forum for researchers working on large
applied optimization problems arising in industry. Such problems often defy
solution by exact approaches such as integer and constraint programming.
Particular challenges of large applied problems include the presence of complex
objectives containing a mixture of real costs and soft constraints which can be
time consuming to evaluate. In addition the search space of problems is often so
large that traversing it with neighbourhood-move, crossover or mutation
operators can take too long to allow effective exploration. This special issue
solicits novel high-quality contributions on heuristic methods for large applied
optimization problems that have been used in practice. While papers on any
aspect of solving large scale optimization problems in industry are welcome, of
special interest are submissions on:

-Scheduling/planning problems solved for particular organizations
-Novel methods for exploring very large search spaces
-Decomposition and parallel computing techniques for solving large optimization
 problems
-Hybrid heuristics for real world optimization problems
-Methods for dealing with large data sets in formulating and solving large
 optimization problems, including issues around data consistency and
 completeness.
-Case studies of successful (or unsuccessful) implementations of large scale
 heuristic optimization algorithms in a business and lessons learned from these.

Authors are encouraged to make available (de-identified) versions of some of
their real world data sets to support the development of more sophisticated
methods to deal with some of these challenging problems.

This special issue will not consider the solution of large abstract problems
(eg classical VRP or job shop scheduling problems) nor papers that only test
algorithms on randomly generated data sets. Authors are invited to submit
original work on topics relevant for this special issue. The publication of the
special issue is tentatively scheduled for Summer 2011.

Submission:
Authors should submit their manuscripts to the Evolutionary Computation
Editorial Manager at http://ecj.lri.fr/.
When submitting a paper, please send at the same time also an email to
Frank Neumann ([log in to unmask]) and a copy to [log in to unmask] mentioning the
special issue, the paper title, and author list to inform about the submission.
