December 1 (Mon) - December 3, 2014 (Wed)
Boston, MA, USA
In-corporation with ACM SIGSIM
BICT 2014 aims to provide a world-leading and multidisciplinary venue for r
esearchers and practitioners in diverse disciplines that seek the understan
ding of key principles, processes and mechanisms in biological systems and
leverage those understandings to develop novel information and communicatio
ns technologies (ICT). BICT 2014 targets two thrusts:
THRUST 1: Indirect/Weak Bioinspiration (ICT designed after biological princ
iples, processes and mechanisms). Examples include evolutionary computation
, artificial gene regulatory networks, neural computation, swarm intelligen
ce, cellular automata, artificial immune systems, artificial life, artifici
al chemistry, reaction-diffusion computing, simulated annealing, self-organ
ization and network science.
THRUST 2: Direct/Strong Bioinspiration (ICT utilizing biological materials
and systems). Examples include cellular computing, molecular computing/comm
unication, membrane computing, DNA computing and memory, bacterial computin
g, Physarum computing and quantum computing.
Expected, but not exclusive, topics are:
* Signal/information processing and communication for bio-inspired ICT
* Algorithms and their applications for bio-inspired ICT
Formal models and methods for bio-inspired ICT
* Bio-inspired software and hardware systems
Modeling, simulations and empirical experiments of bio-inspired ICT
* Self-* and stability properties in bio-inspired ICT
* Security, robustness and resilience in bio-inspired ICT
Design, configuration 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-assisted interdisciplin
ary research
Application domains include, but not limited to, autonomic computing, bioin
formatics, biomedical engineering, computer networks, computer vision, data
mining, e-health, green computing and networking, grid/cloud computing, in
telligent agents, mechanical engineering, molecular communication, nano-sca
le computing and networking, optimization, pervasive computing, robotics, s
ecurity, social networks, software engineering and systems engineering.
