8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)

December 1–3, 2014 Boston, Massachusetts, United States

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:

STUDENT PARTICIPATION GRANTS

BICT 2014 will provide a limited number of student participation grants. Full-time students are qualified to apply. More details will be available shortly.
