      Paper Acceptance Notification: July 25, 2013
      Camera-Ready Deadline: August 14, 2013
      Early Registration Deadline: August 21, 2013
      Workshop Dates: September 9/13, 2013

      *** Adaptive Host and Network Security ***
      (AHAN 2013)

      Monday, September 9th, 2013


      Organizing Committee:
      Stuart Wagner, Applied Communication Sciences, NJ, USA
      Robert Laddaga, DOLL Inc., MA, USA
      Robert Watson, University of Cambridge, UK

      There is a clear need to develop systems at both the host level and the
      network level to actively adapt to cyber attacks and to provide greater
      protection for networked computation at all levels. The significance of
      this workshop is to bring together researchers from different areas such
      as networking, programming languages, computer hardware, and operating
      systems to gain broad insights into specific research issues related to
      adaptive host and network security, and to foster discussions about
      ongoing research, establish directions for future research and
      collaborations, and identify best practices for adaptive security.


      *** Socially Adaptive and Socio-Aware Information and Communication
      Systems ***
      (SocioAware 2013)

      Monday, September 9th, 2013


      Organizing Committee:
      Peter Sturm, University of Trier, Germany
      Jean Botev, University of Luxembourg, Luxemburg
      Ingo Scholtes, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
      Markus Esch, Fraunhofer Institute, Germany
      Bernd Klasen, University of Luxemburg/SES Astra, Luxemburg

      Social services and utilities pervade more and more aspects of our daily
      lives and will conceivably become an integral part of future software
      systems. While it is common and important to investigate how the
      associated gradual convergence of social and technical systems
      influences individuals and society, the fact that this influence is
      mutual is far less explored. Networked computing infrastructures
      involving cloud computing, virtualization techniques, Peer-to-Peer
      technologies or other Internet-based applications are shaped not only by
      technological considerations but, increasingly, also by the social
      structures and processes into which they are embedded. The growing
      interconnectedness of users leads to highly correlated behavior and the
      emergence of collective phenomena which naturally retroact on the
      technical systems by which they are mediated. The workshop seeks to shed
      light on the question how the increasing pervasion of technical
      infrastructures with social aspects affects the engineering of reliable
      and scalable networked computing systems. A particular focus will be
      laid upon the question how the ongoing trend towards a rigorous
      mathematical modeling of self-organization processes in social systems
      (for instance in the language of complex networks, dynamical systems and
      random matrix theory) can influence and inspire the design of
      distributed algorithms, network topologies and communication protocols,
      resulting in what may be called socio-aware networked computing systems.

      *** Trustworthy Self-Organising and Autonomous Systems ***
      (TSOAS 2013)

      Monday, September 9th, 2013


      Organizing Committee:
      Wolfgang Reif, University of Augsburg, Germany
      Christian Müller-Schloer, Leibniz University Hannover, Germany
      Audun Jøsang, University of Oslo, Norway
      Jan-Philipp Steghöfer, University of Augsburg, Germany

      The nature of self-organizing and autonomous systems and cyper-physical
      entities demands that issues of trust and their trustworthiness become a
      primary concern. The Fourth Edition of the Workshop on Trustworthy
      Self-Organizing and Autonomous Systems (TSOS 2013) will provide an open
      stage for discussions about the different facets of trust in
      self-organizing and autonomous systems, how every single one of them can
      be fostered, and how they relate.

      *** Challenges for Achieving Self-Awareness in Autonomic Systems ***
      (AWARE 2013)

      Friday, September 13th, 2013


      Organizing Committee:
      Emma Hart, Edinburgh Napier University, UK
      Giacomo Cabri, Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia, Italy
      Jeremy Pitt, Imperial College London, UK

      As technology continues to rapidly advance, the management of systems
      becomes increasingly more difficult: systems are likely to be composed
      of heterogeneous devices, the topology of the system can dynamically
      change to device mobility; components of the system are probably
      programmed with different models, and emergent behaviours can occur, not
      pre-programmed into the system. On top of this, users of systems expect
      24/7 reliability, high levels of security, and privacy of their data.
      The scale of the challenge imposed by the necessity to manage these
      systems is such that control can no longer be devolved to a human.
      Systems must be able to manage themselves, delivering high-quality of
      service while at the same time optimising overall performance and
      resource usage. This poses significant challenges - systems must respond
      to ever changing conditions, and continuously adapt to external context
      (such as user requirements and behaviour). Awareness will be required
      across a hierarchy of levels, ranging from an individual component level
      to global levels of patterns of use, system performance, network
      conditions and available resources. The goal of the workshop is to
      identify key challenges involved in creating self-aware systems which
      are capable of autonomous management, and consider methods by which
      these challenges can be addressed.


      *** Computationally Adapted {laws | policies | norms} for
      Self-Organising Systems ***
      (CA*OS 2013)

      Friday, September 13th, 2013


      Organizing Committee:
      Gerrit Anders, University of Augsburg
      Didac Busquets, Imperial College London, UK
      Giuseppe Contissa, European University Institute, Italy
      Bastin Tony Roy Savarimuthu, University of Otago, New Zealand

      Many systems, as well as organisations, are characterised by having a
      set of rules that drive (and limit) the interactions amongst their
      components. These rules may range from simple ones to complex legal
      systems, norms, contracts or policies, among others. Examples of this
      kind of systems may be technical systems such as computing grids or
      sensor networks, which have to share limited resources, as well as
      socio-technical systems, with humans involved in the functioning of the
      system, such as in smart grids. While in many cases these rules would be
      fixed, probably set by some authority, there is an increasing need of
      flexibility and openness. This includes changing existing rules,
      generating new ones, deciding who makes the decisions and when these are
      made, setting what happens when agents do not follow the rules, or
      assessing whether a set of rules fits the system's purpose, among
      others. The aim of the workshop is to discuss, based on high quality
      position or research papers, the different aspects, effects, and
      representations of law, norms, and justice in self-organising systems
      and to debate the impact of current and future technical self-organising
      systems on legal systems.

      Thank you very much for your attention,
