CFP: 9th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and
Communications Technologies (BICT 2015, formerly BIONETICS)

Paper submission deadline extended: August 3, 2014

December 3 (Thu) - December 5, 2014 (Sat)
New York City, NY, USA

Sponsored by European Alliance for Innovation (EAI) and Department of
Biomedical Engineering at the Columbia University School of
Engineering and Applied Science

In-corporation with ACM (Pending)

BICT 2014 aims to provide a world-leading and multidisciplinary venue
for researchers and practitioners in diverse disciplines that seek the
understanding of key principles, processes and mechanisms in
biological systems and leverage those understandings to develop novel
information and communications technologies (ICT). BICT 2014 targets
two thrusts:

THRUST 1: Indirect Bioinspiration (ICT designed after biological
principles, processes and mechanisms). Examples include evolutionary
computation, artificial gene regulatory networks, neural
networks/computation, swarm intelligence, cellular automata,
artificial immune systems, amorphous computing, artificial life,
artificial chemistry, reaction-diffusion computing, self-organization,
chaotic systems, social networks, game theory, computational
epidemics, agent-based modeling, and nature-inspired models and

THRUST 2: Direct Bioinspiration (ICT utilizing biological materials
and systems). Examples include biosensing, molecular assembly,
cellular computing, molecular computing/communication, membrane
computing, bacterial computing/communication, DNA computing and
memory, Physarum computing, quantum computing, biometric
security/authentication, brain-computer interfaces and energy
harvesting from biological sources.

Expected, but not exclusive, topics are:

* Signal/information processing and communication for bio-inspired ICT
* Data management and analytics 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, performance and management issues in bio-inspired ICT
* Tools, testbeds and deployment aspects in bio-inspired ICT
* Applications, experiences and standardization of bio-inspired ICT

Application domains include, but not limited to, autonomic computing,
bioinformatics, biomedical engineering, computer networks, computer
vision, data mining, e-health, green computing and networking,
grid/cloud computing, intelligent agents, mechanical engineering,
nanoscale/molecular computing and communication, optimization,
pervasive computing, robotics, security, social networks, software
engineering and systems engineering.
