Call For Papers

SOPS 2014
NSF Workshop on Self-Organizing Particle Systems
January 8, 2014, co-located with SODA


The goal of this NSF-sponsored workshop is to bring together people from the theory and practice of self-organizing physical and biological systems in order to report on recent advances in this area and to identify directions for interdisciplinary research that may help shape the future of the field. The one-day meeting will consist of several invited talks and discussion sessions around four major research areas, namely

- amorphous computing,
- self-organizing robotic systems,
- self-organizing biological systems, and
- self-assembling DNA

Invited speakers:

Bernard Chazelle (Princeton U.) Nikolaus Correll (U. Colorado Boulder)
Eric Klavins (U. of Washington) John Reif (Duke University)
Andrea Richa (Arizona State U.) Rebecca Schulman (Johns Hopkins U.)
Erik Winfree (Caltech) Mark Yim (U. Pennsylvania)


Andrea W. Richa Arizona State University, USA
Christian Scheideler University of Paderborn, Germany

Early registration deadline: December 2, 2013

NSF-funded travel grants are available for PhD students, postdocs, women, and under-represented minorities. Application deadline: November 17, 2013
