Are you working on construction or self-assembly, for example, with 
robots, cyber-physical systems, agents, or social insects?
The SOCO workshop focuses on self-organizing strategies to build 
architecture.


2nd International Workshop on Self-Organising Construction (SOCO)
(Int. Workshops on Foundations and Applications of Self-* Systems of the 
SASO and ICCAC conferences)


Trento, Italy, September 3 or 7 2018

- Summary -

SOCO is on self-organising construction and we want to cumulate, 
present, discussing, and advance new research results from theory and 
practice as well as novel scientific concepts and methodologies. 
Originally inspired by nest construction in social insects, the general 
concept relies on a large number of agents that coordinate their 
construction efforts by prompting and reacting to local stimuli. 
Recently, with the wake of robotic swarms and novel material processing 
approaches, including for instance 3D printing techniques and innovative 
deployment of carbon fibres, self-organising construction is quickly 
gaining tremendous transformative significance in the context of various 
design and construction processes. These include also the construction, 
extension, and renovation of architectural buildings, engineering 
design, industrial assembly, and landscape architecture. Our focus is on 
the design and management of self-organising construction from a 
computational perspective.


- Special Interests -

     • Self-organising biologically inspired construction models
     • Analysis and design of coordinating construction algorithms
     • Agent-based simulations of building usage
     • Self-organising robot groups and swarms for construction
     • Computational metrics for evaluating complex structures (e.g., 
complexity, energy efficiency, structural integrity of buildings)
     • Parameterisation, evaluation, optimisation of artefact 
utilisation and purpose
     • Decentralised supply chains of construction materials
     • Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for self-organised 
construction and maintenance
     • 3D printing technologies for self-organised construction
     • Applications in architectural design, building engineering, 
landscaping, industrial design, engineering and manufacture and swarm 
robotics
     • Interfaces for human inspection and control of self-organising 
construction systems
     • Modelling and simulation techniques, tools and platforms for 
self-organising construction


- Submissions -

Submitted papers of up to six pages will be evaluated in a single-blind 
reviewing process by the workshop committee members. Accepted papers 
will be published in the FAS* workshop proceedings through IEEE. All 
papers need to follow the IEEE DL format of the SASO conference and 
follow the IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings style guide. Please 
submit your paper through EasyChair.

We are looking for contributions that present novel theoretical or 
experimental results, novel design patterns, mechanisms, system 
architectures, frameworks or tools, or practical approaches and 
experiences in building or deploying real-world systems and 
applications. We ask the authors to ensure that their submissions comply 
with the high standards in ingenuity and quality as expected by the SASO 
conference in general.


- Proceedings -

Papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted papers will be published as 
IEEE FAS*W Proceedings and indexed by IEEE Xplore etc.

The workshop on Self-organising Construction (SOCO) is one of the 
International Workshops on Foundations and Applications of Self-* 
Systems (FAS*W) held in the context of the IEEE International 
Conferences on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organising systems (SASO) and on 
Cloud and Autonomic Computing (ICCAC).
