Self-Organizing Systems and the Like
Introduction to Special Session "Self-Organizing Systems", at the PROFES 2012 conference, LNCS, Springer, June 13-15, 2012, Madrid, Spain, 2012-09-05


This contribution is a short introduction into the Special Session “Software Engineering Problems and Solutions in Self-Organizing Systems”. Computer Technology, as it has developed over the past 60 years, has undergone a tremendous development ending up in invading, or being indispensable for, most areas of scientific, technical, social, economic, political, and even cultural life. There is no other example in History comparable to the speed and the paradigmatic change that have come about under the influence of this technological novelty which is both a scientific and engineering effort. (No divergence like between Physics and Mechanical or Electrical Engineering has yet occurred.)
