[DMANET] NSF-Workshop (at SODA 2014) on Self-Organizing Particle Systems


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
thetheory 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 will help shape the future
of the field. The one-day meeting will consist of several invited talks
around four major research areas, namely

- amorphous computing,
- modular robotics,
- self-organizing biological systems, and
- self-assembling DNA

Confirmed speakers are currently Bernard Chazelle (Princeton U.), John Reif
(Duke U.), Mark Yim (U. Pennsylvania), Nikolaus Correll (U. Colorado), and
Andrea Richa (Arizona State U.). For more information please consult


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
