Abstract: This paper gives a systematic overview on modeling formalisms suitable for modeling self-organizing systems. We distinguish between micro-level modeling and macro-level modeling. On the micro level, the behavior of each entity and the interaction between different object must be described by the model. Macro-level modeling abstracts from the individual entities and only looks at the behavior of the system variables of interest. The differentiations between discrete and continuous time and between discrete and continuous state space lead to different descriptions of the model.

Abstract: In the last decade, we witnessed the unparalleled success of communication networks such as the Internet or wireless mobile communication networks. The unprecedented scale of the aforementioned networks does not mark the end of the growth, but the emergence of wireless sensor networks and the ,,Internet of Things" are going to further add to the complexity of today's communication networks. For providers and network operators to be able to plan, build, and maintain next generation networks, it is necessary to push the envelope of traditional means to control the network. From a user's perspective, the organic growth of autonomously operated (community) networks and of application-level overlay networks presents further challenges.

Abstract: Self-organization (SO) appears in many different fields: in computer science (e.g., sensor networks), biology (e.g., colony of ants), physics (e.g., elementary magnets), and many more. During the last years, engineering sciences have been attracted by the phenomenon of SO to overcome inevitable issues, for example, scalability issues that arise when engineering and managing large-scale systems consisting of numerous interacting entities. However, prior to engineering selforganizing systems (SOSs), a common terminology is needed to characterize and define SO and SO-related concepts.

GI/ITG/MMB/KUVS Fachgespraech Performance Modeling Of Self-Organizing Systems (PMSOS'06)

Abstract: Self-organization is expected to play a key architectural role for the future Internet as well as for large-scale pervasive computing systems such as wireless sensor networks. In conjunction with the ,,International Workshop on Self-Organizing Systems (IWSOS 2006)", we organized the first ,,GI/ITG/MMB/KuVS Fachgespraech on Performance Modeling of Self-Organizing Systems (PMSOS'06)". The event was hosted by the chair of Computer Networks & Communications of Universitaet Passau. To make the Fachgespraech as attractive as possible, we introduced and trialed a novel dialogueintensifying format for discussions. In the aftermaths of the workshop, we have been able to collect evidence that the participants considered the workshop to be very vital and stimulating.

Abstract: Self-organization plays a key architectural role for the future Internet. Self-organization will enhance flexibility and evolvability of organically growing, large-scale distributed systems, e.g., of large-scale pervasive computing systems such as wireless sensor networks. These statements could be proved by the technical program of the IWSOS 2006. Sixteen high-quality papers were selected by a thorough review process out of more than 70 submissions from 21 different countries. The technical program of the IWSOS 2006 was particularly covering application-oriented topics like: the dynamics of structured and unstructured overlays; self-organization in grids, peer-to-peer networks, wireless environments, and autonomic computing; and the application of self-organization for enhancing network management and routing. The program of the IWSOS 2006 has been supplemented, besides the social events and tutorials, by a poster session on the role of ,,Self-Organization in European Next Generation Internet" and also by a Technical Discussion on ,,Performance Modeling of Self-Organizing Systems". The two parts of the technical report on hand is used to make the contributions to the poster session (Part I) and technical discussion (Part II) available to a broader community.
