Formal Development of Self-organising Systems [chapter]

Graeme Smith, Jeffrey W. Sanders
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Attempts to engineer autonomic multi-agent systems, particularly those having large numbers of agents, have revealed the need for design structures and formalisms to support the construction of properties  ...  that emerge at the system level.  ...  But engineering such interactions, so that the correct self- * properties emerge at the system level with a reasonable degree of trustworthiness, is not easy.  ...

On Agent Modelling And System Simulation Of Self-Organisation

Martijn C. Schut, Nivea Ferreira-Schut
2009 ECMS 2009 Proceedings edited by J. Otamendi, A. Bargiela, J. L. Montes, L. M. Doncel Pedrera  
The objective of this paper is to further develop and exploit the idea of combining a formal approach on the agent level and an empirical approach on the system level in self-organisation.  ...  Complex, natural, social, technological and economic systems have recently given rise to the need of a new paradigm for computational systems that are adaptive, can self-organise and exhibit emergent behaviour  ...  In 2007, (Sudeikat and Renz 2007) suggest to use the approach of requirements engineering to develop self-organising multi-agent systems.  ...

Developing Individual Willingness to Participate in Organisational Development: A Malaysian Case Study

Mohamad Hisyam Selamat, Muhammad Syahir Abd. Wahab, Mohd. Amir Mat Samsudin
2020 Malaysian Management Journal  
To achieve the aim, this research developed a conceptual framework based on the elements of understanding organisational roles, internal strengths, formal and informal discussion, and rational discourse  ...  Research has highlighted that organisational development (OD) is a complex issue as it requires the input of employees at all levels of an organisation.  ...  All these self-documented facts in turn provide inputs for a continuous development of an organisation.  ...

Entropy Methods in Guided Self-Organisation

Mikhail Prokopenko, Carlos Gershenson
2014 Entropy  
Self-organisation occurs in natural phenomena when a spontaneous increase in order is produced by the interactions of elements of a complex system.  ...  Not surprisingly, general methods developed to study entropy can also be applied to guided self-organisation.  ...  We are also grateful for the support provided by the organizers of the 2013 European Conference on Complex Systems (ECCS'2013) for facilitating the organisation of the GSO-2013 Workshop, as well as to  ...

Cognition coming about: self-organisation and free-energy [article]

Ines Hipolito, Maxwell Ramstead, Axel Constant, Karl Friston
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We submit that this allows one to model embryogenesis as self-organisation in a dynamical system that minimises free-energy.  ...  The ensuing formalism may be extended to also explain the autonomous emergence of cognition, specifically in the brain, as a dynamic self-assembling process.  ...  This is consistent with the self-organisation of complex systems defined as structures that maintain their integrity under changing conditions.  ...

Meta-abilities and outsourcing: an individual based conceptual framework

Jyoti Choudrie, Susan Grey, Mohamad Hisyam Selamat
2009 Knowledge and Process Management  
To cope with the current turbulent times, organisations' are seeking a range of solutions and one of the most publicised strategies for this in recent times is outsourcing.  ...  In the Information Systems (IS) area, outsourcing has fast become an essential part of an organisation's IS strategy.  ...  Further future research is the concept of meta-abilities being studied in other IS research areas such as IS effectiveness and managing the human aspects of systems development and implementation.  ...

The Globalisation of Firms as Social Systems

2011 Chinese Business Review  
This conceptual paper serves to provide an overview on existing literature in systems theory and to develop a basic framework for the study of evolutionary processes in the globalisation of firms.  ...  In this paper, social systems theory will be used to develop a model of a firm that is constituted by communication and actions rather than by individuals and assets.  ...  Autopoietic systems are capable of self-reference, self-organisation, and self-reproduction.  ...

Complexity Theory and Leadership for Turbulent Environments

Roger B. Mason
2013 Journal of Social Sciences  
Thus, the traditional view of a leader as a decision-maker, instructing and controlling the organisation is inappropriate in complex/turbulent environments.  ...  The findings showed that self-organising leadership appears superior in turbulent environments. These findings and their implications are discussed, and recommendations for further research are made.  ...  of Reading, for their critiques, comments and suggestions, which have added considerably to the value of this paper.  ...

Toward a Model of Workforce Training and Development

Maiju Tuomiranta, Sanna Varpukari, Nestori Syynimaa
2019 Proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Computer Supported Education  
The challenge for the organisations is how the formal instruction can and should be provided to employees.  ...  In this paper, we constructed a model of Workforce Training and Development (WOTRA), based on the current learning theories, modes, methods, and models.  ...  Developing a New Competence The fit of learning methods and modes for developing a new competence are assessed in Table 3 .  ...

New Values and Attitudes in the Didactics of Teaching Learning Contents in the Higher Education System

Dragu Mircea, Barna Iuliana, Ichim Paul
2013 Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences  
The study primarily aims at identifying the best way of correlating the three types of education, i.e., formal, non-formal and informal -and the active forms of relation and cooperation between the university  ...  Its purpose is that of providing with a series of principles, basic ones, if we may add, absolutely necessary in the process of developing some balanced professional skills during the university years,  ...  Focus is laid on: self-clarification of the school organisation, which presupposes knowledge of its own resources and self-defining its own needs; self-determination of the school organisation to promote  ...

Quality of Working Life, Knowledge-Intensive Work Processes and Creative Learning Organisations [chapter]

Klaus Fuchs-Kittowski, Frank Fuchs-Kittowski
2002 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
This paper discusses the requirements that are necessary to make the organisational potentials of modem information and communication technology usable for the development of creative learning enterprises  ...  The concept of self-organisation has its justification here, because during this process information is indeed generated.  ...  A transition takes place from the social organisation as a self-organising system (system of actions) to a pre-organised, formal system of functions, i.e. reduction of human activity to formalised operations  ...

Regional Tourist Organisation of the Łódź Voivodeship and its role in the processes of tourism-based local production systems' development

Piotr Krzysztof Rzeńca
2016 Acta Universitatis Lodziensis. Folia Oeconomica  
Whether we call them local production systems, clusters or industrial districts, all of these co-opetition arrangements can be considered stimuli in developing and implementing innovations as well as local  ...  Since networking of the regional economy is required, the organisation joins entities representing different industries, territorial self-government units, associations, foundations, etc.  ...  Clusters may be created as bottom-up initiatives of potential members of a cluster or as top-down arrangements as systemic elements of regional policy started by, e.g., self-government organisations.  ...

Agent-Based Computing and Programming of Agent Systems [chapter]

Michael Luck, Peter McBurney, Jorge Gonzalez-Palacios
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Programming such agent systems presents many difficult challenges, both conceptually and practically, and addressing these challenges will be crucial for the development of agent technologies.  ...  The concepts of autonomous agent and multi-agent system provide appropriate levels of abstraction for the design, implementation and simulation of many complex, distributed computational systems, particularly  ...  part based on, and borrows heavily from, the AgentLink III Roadmap [12] which, in turn, drew on inputs and contributions from the PROMAS Technical Forum Group (as well as others) during the lifetime of  ...
