The Eigth International
"Organic Computing Doctoral Dissertation Colloquium"
(OC-DDC 2020)

July 9th - 10th, 2020 in Mannheim, Germany

The Organic Computing Doctoral Dissertation Colloquium (OC-DDC) is organised by the
Special Interest Group on Organic Computing within the Gesellschaft für Informatik.

The 2020 edition will take place in Mannheim, Germany from Thursday, July 9th to
Friday, July 10th and is co-organised by the Information Systems II group (Prof.
Christian Becker).

Details on the event (and its predecessors) are available at:

We invite applications from PhD students at any stage of their doctoral studies on
Organic Computing, Autonomic Computing, intelligent systems, self-adaptation and
self-organisation, self-aware computing systems, autonomous learning, self-* mechanisms,
trustworthy systems, and related research topics.

==* Colloquium Theme *==

The intent of the DDC is to bring together PhD students who have their research focus
within the broader Organic Computing community and will not have defended their thesis
before July 2020. The main goal of this colloquium is to foster excellence in OC-related
research by providing students with feedback and advice that are particularly relevant to their
doctoral studies and career development. Each participant will take part in the colloquium
organisation and the review process for the other participants. Keynote speakers will
present current research in the field. They will be available during the OC-DDC and
participate in the feedback process for the PhD students. Details on the keynote speakers will be
available as soon as possible (see website).

The schedule includes:
- Prepare an extended abstract or short paper of 6 pages (max.) reflecting your PhD
- Participate in the review process
- Participate in the (supervised) decision process (acceptance of submissions)
- Present your work to an audience consisting mainly of other PhD students from your
- Identify points of contact between your work and others
- Build your social research network
- Meet experts in your research domain and listen to their invited talks and expertise
- Enjoy the opportunity to improve your PhD work, overcome stipulations and learn from the experts

PhD students are invited to participate by submitting an extended abstract of up to 6 pages
(written in English, in Springer's LNCS style). The colloquium will give participants the
opportunity to present their ongoing research in a friendly forum. They will obtain valuable
feedback from colloquium attendees in a constructively critical and informal atmosphere.

After the OC-DDC, each participant will be invited to prepare a book chapter for an edited
book. The book chapter will contain approx. 14 pages.
For instance, the book of the DDC's 2014 edition is available at:
