Biologically-inspired computing has a long history since 1950s. Innovative bio-inspired paradigms, models and algorithms have been developed, and they have been successfully applied in a number of scientific and engineering domains. It is now known that even mission-critical and safety-critical systems can be built in bio-inspired manners. In recognition of its achievements and potential, bio-inspired information and communication technology (bio-inspired ICT) was named one of Scientific American magazine's 10 "World Changing Ideas 2010."
BICT 2012 aims to provide a multidisciplinary venue for researchers and practitioners in Bio-inspired ICT. Particularly, BICT 2012 covers two areas: (1) ICT with biological materials and systems (e.g., molecular communication and Physarum computing/networking) and (2) ICT designed after biological principles, phenomena and processes (e.g., evolutionary computation and artificial immune processes).
Application domains include, but not limited to, autonomic computing, bioinformatics, biological engineering, computational finance, computer networks, computer vision, data mining, green computing and networking, grid/cloud computing, intelligent agents, mechanical engineering, molecular communication, nano-scale computing and networking, optimization, pervasive computing, robotics, security, software engineering, and systems engineering.
- Signal/information processing and communication in bio-inspired ICT
- Formal models and methods for bio-inspired ICT
- Bio-inspired software and hardware systems
- Simulations and empirical experiments of bio-inspired ICT
- Self-* properties in bio-inspired ICT
- Design and management issues in bio-inspired ICT
- Software engineering and performance engineering in bio-inspired ICT
- Tools, testbeds and deployment aspects in bio-inspired ICT
- Applications, experiences and standardization of bio-inspired ICT
- Socially-aware, game theoretic and other metaphor-driven interdisciplinary approaches to bio-inspired ICT
Paper Submission: July 1, 2012
Notification of Acceptance: August 10, 2012
Camera-ready Submission: September 5, 2012
Authors are invited to submit full papers (4 to 6 pages each) or short papers (2 to 4 pages each) in the IEEE proceedings format. Up to two extra pages are allowed for each full paper (8 pages in total) with extra page charges. Submit your paper by stating the subject area of "JS-2: Biologically-inspired Information and Communication Technology. See http://scis2012.j-soft.org/?file=paper-submission for detailed submission instructions.
Paper authors are required to present their papers at the conference venue. Alternatively, they can choose to deliver online presentations with a Skype-like tool rather than physically visiting the conference venue.
