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 (pending)

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, Biological and Bio-Inspired Intelligence (ABBII)
* Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering (AISE)

* 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)
* Security and Privacy in Bio-inspired Networks (SPBN)
* Smart Body Area Networks (SBAN)
* Swarm and Modular Robotics (SAMR)


Authors are invited to submit regular papers (up to 15 pages each), short 
papers (up to 8 pages each) or poster/demo papers (up to 3 pages each) in 
the Springer LNICST format. 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. 


All accepted paper will be published by Springer and submitted for indexing 
by SI, EI Compendex, Scopus, ACM Library, Google Scholar and many more. 
Selected papers will be considered for publication in leading journals 

* ACM/Springer Mobile Networks and Applications
* Elsevier Information Sciences
