      Multi-Agent and Bio-Inspired Algorithms and Applications for
      Distributed Systems
      -------------------------------------------------
      Recently, the multi-agent paradigm is emerging for the development of
      solutions to very hard parallel and distributed computational
      problems. This paradigm is based either on the activity of
      "intelligent" – possibly mobile - agents which perform complex
      functionalities or on the exploitation of a large number of very
      simple agents that can produce an overall intelligent behaviour (the
      so called "swarm intelligence"), leading to the solution of alleged
      almost intractable problems. The multi-agent paradigm is often
      inspired by biologically systems. Bio-inspired algorithms such as
      genetic and evolutionary algorithms, ant colonies, and immune systems
      are routinely applied to hard and large problems in a variety of
      areas. Some examples are optimization through genetic algorithms, new
      ideas for developing routing algorithms in wireless networks inspired
      by honey bee behaviour, resource discovery and data mining
      computations in Grid and P2P frameworks achieved by ant-inspired
      algorithms, and so on. This session aims to gather scientists,
      engineers, and practitioners to share and exchange their experiences,
      discuss challenges, and report state-of-the-art and in-progress
      research on all aspects of Parallel and Distributed Multi Agent and
      Bio-Inspired Algorithms.

      Submission Guidelines
      ---------------------

      Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will
      be considered. Please submit full papers: 6 pages maximum in IEEE
      Computer Society format
      (http://www.computer.org/portal/pages/ieeecs/publications/cps/index.html).
      Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the
      International Program Committee. All accepted papers will be published
      in the PDP Conference Proceedings.


      Publication
      -----------
      Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 5000
      words in length and including a 150-200 word abstract. To facilitate
      an anonymous reviewing process, the first page of the paper should
      contain only the title and abstract.
      Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
      Best papers will be selected for a special issue of Elsevier Journal
      of Systems Architecture.
