GI/ITG/MMB/KuVS Technical Discussion (Fachgespraech) on
“Performance Modeling of Self-Organizing Systems”
July 13, 2007, University of Passau, Germany

Self-organization plays a key architectural role for the future Internet
as well as for large-scale pervasive computing systems such as wireless
sensor networks. Self-organization will enhance flexibility and
evolvability of organically growing, large-scale distributed systems.
Driven by randomness and feedback, the relation between cause and effect
of these systems may appear chaotic: minor causes may have severe impact,
whereas seemingly major causes may only have a small effect. Traditional
mathematical models tend to be linear and, thus, are not suitable to model
such chaotic systems. Models to be developed should be simple to remain
scalable to the huge number of entities in the systems under investigation
and to be generally applicable.
Following PMSOS 2006, we again aim to investigate the methodology for
modeling and evaluating the performance and reliability of complex
self-organizing systems at the edge of chaos. To this end, this meeting
once more brings together leading national and international experts and
creates a forum for knowledge exchange.
