BioAdcom 2010

1st International Workshop on Bio-inspired Approaches to Advanced Computing
and Communications (BioAdcom2010)

Co-located with

5th International ICST Conference on Bio-Inspired Models of Network,
Information, and Computing Systems (BIONETICS 2010)

Boston, Massachusetts, December 1-3, 2010

Call for papers

The rapid developments in networking and resource integration domains have
resulted in the emergence of distributed computing models such as Web
Services, P2P, Grid and Cloud computing for solving very complex problems.
However, biology has developed effective solutions to hard engineering
challenges through millions of years of evolution. Several algorithms and
techniques widely used in Computer Science have been adapted from, or
inspired by, known biological phenomena. Computer scientists applying
biomimetics can learn by observing nature and adopting biological approaches
in the aforementioned distributed computing models.

The focus of BioAdcom2010 is on identifying the role that bio-inspired
computing can play in the progress of computing and communications systems,
in highlighting productive areas of research and in pinpointing precise
application areas. Manuscripts unfolding mathematical models, algorithms,
protocols, tools, evaluation methods, and experimental studies of advanced
computing and communications techniques that are inspired by and derived
from biological systems are solicited for this workshop. Submitted papers
should not have been previously published nor be currently under
consideration for publication elsewhere. All papers will be reviewed by at
least three reviewers internationally.

All accepted papers will be published by Springer.
