                              CALL FOR PAPERS

           Special Session on Biologically Inspired Parallel and
              Distributed Computing, Algorithms and Solutions
                               (BICAS 2018)
                                As part of
           The 16th International Conference on High Performance
                    Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2018)

                    Orléans, France, July 16-20, 2018



Biology has served as inspiration for Computer Science in recent years,
given that biological systems tend to be adaptive, reactive, and
distributed. Thus, bio-inspired computing is a multi-disciplinary field
devoted to studying complex problems using computational methods modeled
after design principles encountered in nature. This way, novel and
unconventional solutions are accomplished to tackle current challenges
in science.

This session aims at examining different solutions to complex problems
using nature inspired approaches, and their interplay with cutting-edge
technology in High Performance Computing. We invite researchers and
scientists in this area to participate and contribute to this event and
we welcome their works.

Paper Submissions

Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted
elsewhere until it appears in HPCS proceedings, in the case of acceptance,
or notified otherwise. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of
your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per
template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400
words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should
include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax
numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate
clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally
responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers
and posters for posters submission details) will also be considered


Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings.
Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on
the HPCS 2018 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings
formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of
the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE or
ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.

Special issue

Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected
for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed
information will soon be announced and will be made available on the
conference website.
