      CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE SPECIAL SESSION ON SYSTEMS SELF-ASSEMBLY

      AT THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL WORK-CONFERENCE on the INTERPLAY between
      NATURAL and ARTIFICIAL COMPUTATION

      Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canary Islands (Spain)
      June 15-18, 2005

      ORGANISERS:
      Natalio Krasnogor, Marian Gheorghe, Jean-Louis Giavitto, David A. Pelta


      SCOPE:
      Self-assembly is a process that creates complex hierarchical structures
      (from a given set of components) through the statistical exploration of
      alternative configurations. These processes occur without external
      intervention. In general, components are autonomous, have no
      pre-programmed assembly plan, and can only interact with their local
      environment, thus they are not pre-assigned to a specific function or
      arrangement within the final assembled structure.

      Besides the modelling and the simulation in natural systems,
      self-assembly can be used in artificial systems as a powerful
      engineering principle to achieve a desired collective effect or to form
      potentially autonomic structures exhibiting a hierarchy of emergent
      system properties.

      Systems where self-assembly takes place (or which are created by a
      self-assembling processes) are remarkably varied, and some common
      principles for self-assembly are starting to be discerned.

      In this context, this special session will be a showcase of systems
      self-assembly across the computational, biological, chemical, physical
      and engineering disciplines. It will seek to uncover unifying principles
      for the study and implementation of systems self-assembly. It hopes to
      bring together researchers in various communities to present their
      results, to foster fertilization between theory and practice across
      multi-disciplines, as well as to favour the dissemination and growth of
      new tools and applications.


      PAPER SUBMISSION:

      The session organizers request original papers on self-assembly and
      self-organization theory and practice. Authors should submit the
      camera-ready version of their paper written in English (official
      language of the conference), of up to 10 pages (including figures,
      tables and references), in electronic format to:

      Dr. Natalio Krasnogor
      E-mail: Natalio.Krasnogor@...
      Subject: Contribution to Systems Self-Assembly Special Session

      Authors must send their papers (LATEX sources plus camera ready in
      PDF/Postscript), before February 15th, 2005.

      Please, check the conference website
      http://iwann.dia.uned.es/iwinac2005-cfp.html for formatting instructions.

      The accepted papers will appear in the proceedings that will be
      published in the "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" series from
      Springer-Verlag.

      The Program Committee will referee all papers received. Accepted papers
      must be presented during the conference. At least one authors
      registration is required for each accepted paper.

      A *selected few* of the accepted papers will be invited to be extended
      and submitted to appear in the book Systems Self-Assembly:
      Multidisciplinary Snapshots to be published by Elsevier in its series
      Studies in Multidisciplinarity.


      IMPORTANT DATES:

      Final date for submission: February 15, 2005
      Acceptance notification and start of registration: April 1, 2005
      End of reduction fee for early registration: April 30, 2005
      Congress date: June 15-18, 2005
