Autonomous Systems – Self-Organization, Management, and Control
Proceedings of the 8th International Workshop held at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China, October 6–7, 2008

The International Workshop on "Autonomous Systems - Self-Organization, Management, and Control " is the eighth in a successful series of workshops that were established by Shanghai Jiao Tong University and Technische Universitat Berlin. The goal of these workshops is to bring together researchers from both universities in order to present research results to an international community. In recent years autonomy of action has become a broadly desirable property of systems which operate in complex technical, societal and natural environments.
Moving or flying robots, for example, need to act on sensor data in real time, semantic services need to adapt to changing requirements of their users, and information systems which are based on huge information sources, like the World Wide Web, need to select information in view of their user's opinions and interests. To develop such systems and applications advanced techniques, algorithms, languages, methodologies, and architectures are required, which allow for self-organization, selfmanagement, and self-control.
Reporting on recent developments in autonomous systems and on studies of their specification and analysis, this workshop addresses the following topics:
Techniques of Sensing and Recognition
Applications of Autonomous Behavior
Self-Reference and Formal Analysis
Architecting and Management
Opinion Mining and User Interest
