Self-organisation, self-regulation, self-repair, and self-maintenance are promising conceptual approaches to deal with the ever increasing complexity of distributed interacting software and information handling systems. Self-organising applications are able to dynamically change their functionality and structure without direct user intervention to respond to changes in requirements and the environment. This book comprises revised and extended papers presented at the International Workshop on Engineering Self-Organising Applications, ESOA 2004, held in New York, NY, USA in July 2004 at AAMAS as well as invited papers from leading researchers. The papers are organized in topical sections on state of the art, synthesis and design methods, self-assembly and robots, stigmergy and related topics, and industrial applications.The approach proposed in the Amorphous Computing project  for the formation of origami shapes in a amorphous network of particles is the ... 6 Conclusions and Open Directions The TOTA approach enables the effective formation of a variety of complex shapes in ... automata inspired approach; trying to define a simple and modular programming model; trying to achieve a other than the formation ofanbsp;...
