Abstract: The SASO conference focuses on how to make computer systems operate autonomously in a reliable, efficient and useful way with minimal user or operator intervention. The workshop addresses this very problem narrowing the focus down to techno-social systems (i.e., ICT systems in which many people collectively coordinate and cooperate to achieve their goals without central control). The question we ask is: how can one let a system self-organize to a high quality, desirable state, where users and their behavior form an integral part of the system (i.e., a techno-social system), and where self-organization at the system level has to be aligned with self-organization at the social level. The workshop is inherently interdisciplinary. Relevant areas include: sociology and psychology, in particular, the evolution of cooperation, opinion dynamics, the evolution of norms and trust relationships, etc; physics, in particular complex (social and technical) networks and models of the dynamics of group behavior; computer science, in particular P2P systems, data mining (ranking and recommendation), information retrieval, and distributed systems.
