Self-organization is an important concept from physics that emphasizes the emergence of complex patterns without detailed central plan. This meeting explores contemporary attempts to view cell differentiation in terms of self-organized systems. The meeting strives to encourage inspiring case stories for how individual and/or collective developmental decisions can be understood from simple rules for regulation within and communication between cells.
