Rolf P. Würtz, Andreas Herkersdorf and Falko Dressler, "Organic Computing," Tutorial, 9th IEEE/ACM Conference on Design, Automation, and Test in Europe (DATE 2006), Munich, Germany, March 06, 2006.


The rapidly rising complexity in information processing systems calls for novel methods for designing and organizing them, thus relieving the designer from the burden of planning all details, in short, to help artificial systems self-organize. This self-organization of highly complex structures prevails in living systems, and 'Organic Computing' is an attempt to uncover its principles and make them fruitful for design. In the tutorial, its methodology is exemplified on the application domains of artificial face recognition, system on chip design, and self-organization of autonomous sensor/actuator networks. The tutorial is geared towards system designers and computer scientists who wish to evaluate the potential of Organic Computing methods.
