      CFP: 8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and
      Communications Technologies (BICT 2014, formerly BIONETICS)


      December 1 (Mon) - December 3, 2014 (Wed)
      Boston, MA, USA

      In-corporation with ACM

      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/Weak 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/Strong 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.

      Expected, but not exclusive, topics are:

      * Signal/information processing and communication 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 and management issues in bio-inspired ICT
      * Software engineering and performance engineering in bio-inspired ICT
      * Tools, testbeds and deployment aspects in bio-inspired ICT
      * Applications, experiences and standardization of bio-inspired ICT
      * Socially-aware, game theoretic and other metaphor-assisted
      interdisciplinary research

      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,
      molecular communication, nano-scale computing and networking,
      optimization, pervasive computing, robotics, security, social networks,
      software engineering and systems engineering.


      Regular paper submission due: August 4
      Short and poster/demo paper submission due: September 22
      Notification for regular papers: September 15
      Notification for short and poster/demo papers: October 6
      Camera ready due: October 13


      In addition to the regular track that covers general/mainstream topics,
      BICT 2014 features the following special tracks that focus on specific,
      emerging or underrepresented topics.

      * Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering (AISE)
      * Body Area Soft Computing (BASC)
      * Biologically-Inspired Process Calculi (BIPC)
      * Bio-Inspired Machine Vision (BIMV)
      * Bio-inspired/Biomimetic Microsystems & Microdevices (BMM)
      * Bio-inspired Wireless Network Security (BWNS)
      * Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)
      * Engineering Applications from Molecular and Gene Regulatory Networks
      * Molecular Communication and Networking (MCN)
      * Morphogenetic Collective Systems (MCS)
      * Modularization for Practical Software Engineering (MPSE)
      * Resilient Networks (RN)
      * Swarm and Modular Robotics (SAMR)
      * Smart Body Area Networks (SBAN)
      * Security and Privacy in Bio-inspired Networks (SPBN)


      Authors are invited to submit regular papers (up to 8 pages each), short
      papers (up to 4 pages each) or poster/demo papers (up to 2 pages each)
      in ACM's paper template. Up to two extra pages are allowed for each
      paper with extra page charges. See
      http://bionetics.org/2014/show/initial-submission for more details.
