Call for Papers


BICT 2019 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 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.


BICT 2019 targets two thrusts:

THRUST 1: Indirect Bioinspiration (ICT designed after biological principles, processes and mechanisms)

  • 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
  • Nature-inspired models and calculi

THRUST 2: Direct Bioinspiration (ICT utilizing biological materials and systems)

  • 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


All registered papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

BICT proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
