The 8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS), BICT 2014, will take place on 1 – 3 December, 2014 in Boston, United States. You are cordially invited to participate in BICT 2014 to be held at UMass Club, MA, USA.
Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies Conference – BICT 2014 – aims to provide a world-leading and unique opportunity for bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines that seek the understanding of the fundamental principles and design strategies 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 computation, swarm intelligence, cellular automata, artificial immune systems, artificial life, artificial chemistry, reaction-diffusion computing, simulated annealing, self-organization and network science.
THRUST 2: Direct Bioinspiration (ICT utilizing biological materials and systems). Examples include cellular computing, molecular computing/communication, membrane computing, DNA computing and memory, bacterial computing, Physarum computing and quantum computing.
