DOI: 10.1145/1837909.1837911

Organic Computing (OC) and other research initiatives like Autonomic Computing or Proactive Computing have developed the vision of systems possessing life-like properties: they self-organize, adapt to their dynamically changing environments, and...

Empowered by wireless communication: Distributed methods for self-organizing traffic collectives
Sándor P. Fekete, Christiane Schmidt, Axel Wegener, Horst Hellbrück, Stefan Fischer
Article No.: 11
DOI: 10.1145/1837909.1837912

In recent years, tremendous progress has been made in understanding the dynamics of vehicle traffic flow and traffic congestion by interpreting traffic as a multiparticle system. This helps to explain the onset and persistence of many undesired...

Parsimonious rule generation for a nature-inspired approach to self-assembly
Alexander Grushin, James A. Reggia
Article No.: 12
DOI: 10.1145/1837909.1837913

Most construction of artificial, multicomponent structures is based upon an external entity that directs the assembly process, usually following a script/blueprint under centralized control. In contrast, recent research has focused increasingly on...
