Research Days on Self-Organization and Swarm Intelligence in Cyber Physical Systems

July 10 – 12, 2017
Lakeside Labs
Klagenfurt, Austria

Systems with swarm intelligence consist of a set of agents, with local intelligence, interacting locally. Typically, approaches for swarm intelligence come from biological systems, like ant or bee colony behavior, schooling of fishes, flocking of birds, etc. As the agents follow very simple rules without a central control dictating their activities, the interactions between those agents lead to the emergence of intelligent or complex global behavior. In other words, CPS researchers need to learn how to construct and apply techniques for self- organization and swarm intelligence, their opportunities and challenges.

At the Research Days 2017, a group of international researchers will discuss how this translation between CPS, self-organization, and swarm intelligence can be achieved on a theoretical and practical basis. The Research Days are a regular event concentrating on the core competence of Lakeside Labs - Self-organizing Networked Systems. During this workshop organized by Lakeside Labs GmbH in cooperation with the University of Klagenfurt, international experts devote themselves to a special topic in self-organization. The event is organized as a workshop of several consecutive days in July. It takes place at Lakeside Labs in Klagenfurt am W├Ârthersee, Austria, near a beautiful lake and Alps scenery. Invited experts, local professors, and young researchers discuss and elaborate ideas in the field of Self-Organizing Systems (SOS). The main emphasis of the workshop is on soliciting discussions and creating new ideas regarding a topic related to self-organizing systems. The event greatly supports scientific exchange, networking, establishment of international collaborations, and joint research projects.
