BICT 2017 – 10th EAI International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS) will take place in Hoboken, New Jersey, United States on 15-17 March, 2017.
This Conference 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 2017 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 calculi.
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.
BICT 2017 will feature the state-of-the-art keynote speeches, parallel technical sessions, focused special tracks, interactive demo/poster sessions, informative co-located workshops and entertaining social functions.
The Conference is proud to welcome Jane Hillston, Professor of Quantitative Modelling in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh and a member of the Laboratory for Foundations of Computer Science, as a keynote speaker.
In addition to the regular track that covers general/mainstream topics, BICT 2017 features the following special tracks that focus on specific, emerging or underrepresented topics:
BICT 2017 is also proud to host 3 great workshops:
- Workshop on Logics for Unconventional Computing
- Workshop on Sociality in the Wireless Ecosystem
- 2nd Workshop on Computational Models of the Visual Cortex
All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world’s largest scientific libraries. Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: Elsevier (EI), Thomson Scientific (ISI), Scopus, Crossref, Google Scholar, DBLP.
Authors of the Best Papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work through one of the EAI Endorsed Publications.
