Welcome to BIONETICS 2008
3rd International Conference on Bio-Inspired Models of Network, Information, and Computing Systems
Technology is taking us to a world where myriads of heavily networked devices interact with the physical world in multiple ways, and at multiple scales, from the global Internet scale down to micro- and nano-devices. Many of these devices are highly mobile and autonomous, and must adapt to the surrounding environment in a totally unsupervised way.
A fundamental research challenge is the design of robust decentralized computing systems capable of operating under changing environments and noisy input, and yet exhibit the desired behaviour and response time, under constraints such as energy consumption, size, and processing power. These systems should be able t
