Dear Colleagues,

We apologize if you received multiple CFPs for 2019 Organic Computing 
Doctoral Dissertation Colloquium.


The Seventh International
       "Organic Computing Doctoral Dissertation Colloquium"
(OC-DDC 2019)

September 23rd to 24th 2019 in Kassel, Germany (as part of Informatik2019)

--- EXTENDED DEADLINE is May 1, 2019 ---

The 2019 edition of the Doctoral Dissertation Colloquium (DDC) is 
organised by the Special Interest Group on Organic Computing within the 
Gesellschaft für Informatik. It will take place in Kassel, Germany in 
the context of Informatik2019. Details on the event (and its 
predecessors) are available at: 

We invite applications from PhD students at any stage of their doctoral 
studies on self-adaptive and self-organising systems, e.g., in the 
context of Organic Computing, Autonomic Computing, self-organisation, 
runtime adaptive systems, autonomous learning, self-optimisation 
mechanisms, trustworthy systems, and related research topics.

Colloquium theme

The intent of the OCDDC is to bring together PhD students who have their 
research focus within the broader Organic Computing community and will 
not have defended their thesis before September 2019. The main goal of 
this colloquium is to foster excellence in OC-related research by 
providing students feedback and advice that are particularly relevant to 
their doctoral studies and career development. Each participant will 
take part in the colloquium organisation and the review process for the 
other participants. A keynote speaker will present current research in 
the field. Speaker and chairs will be available during the OCDDC and 
participate in the feedback process for the PhD students. Details on the 
speaker will be available as soon as possible (see website).

The schedule includes:
- Prepare an article summarising the concept and possibly selected 
results of your PhD
- Participate in the Review Process
- Participate in the (supervised) decision process (acceptance of 
- Present your work to an audience consisting mainly of other PhD 
students from your  community
- Identify points of contact between your work and others
- Build your social research network
- Meet experts in your research domain and listen to their invited talks 
and expertise
- Enjoy the opportunity to get hints on the PhD process and related 
topics from these experts

PhD students are invited to participate by submitting articles of up to 
14 pages (written in English, in Springer's LNCS style). The colloquium 
will give participants the opportunity to present their ongoing research 
in a friendly forum. They will obtain valuable feedback from colloquium 
attendees in a constructively critical and informal atmosphere.

The proceedings of the last editions have been published in a book 
series with university of Kassel press. An example can be found using
