8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS) - BICT 2014
You are cordially invited to participate in BICT 2014 to be held at UMass Club, MA, USA, in December 2014.
BICT 2014 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 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.
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. Here are several important notes and announcements:
- Keynote speeches by world authorities are being arranged.
The technical program consists of the main track and special tracks:
- Artificial, Biological and Bio-Inspired Intelligence (ABBII)
- Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering (AISE)
- Bio-inspired/Biomimetic Microsystems & Microdevices (BMM)
- Bio-Inspired Machine Vision (BIMV)
- Bio-inspired Wireless Network Security (BWNS)
- Body Area Soft Computing (BASC)
- Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)
- Gene Regulatory Networks
- Security and Privacy in Bio-inspired Networks (SPBN)
- Smart Body Area Networks
- Modularization for Practical Software Engineering (MPSE)
- Molecular Communication and Networking (MCN)
- Morphogenetic Collective Systems (MCS)
