Present CFP : 2012

The 7th International Conference on Bio-Inspired Models
of Network, Information, and Computing Systems

10-12 December 2012, Lugano, Switzerland


BIONETICS 2012 aims to provide a world-leading and unique opportunity for
bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines that
seek the understanding of the fundamental principles and design strategies in
biological systems, and leverage on those understandings to build bio-inspired
systems for problem-solving and engineering applications, with a special focus
on: networking, distributed systems, information processing, multi-agent
systems, single and multi-robot systems, biomimetics, optimization,
bioinformatics, and modeling of biological and bio-synthetic systems.


BIONETICS 2012 solicits contributions dealing with the modeling and application
of ideas from natural processes and systems.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Signal/information processing and communication models in biological systems
- Coordination and cooperation models in biological systems
- Bio-inspired formal models and methods
- Bio-inspired algorithms and mechanisms
- Bio-inspired software and hardware systems
- Biomimetics, bioengineering, and synthetic biological systems
- Modeling and simulation of bio-inspired systems, biological systems and synthetic biological systems
- Self-properties in bio-inspired systems, biological systems and synthetic biological systems
- Design and performance issues in bio-inspired systems and synthetic biological systems
- Design of hybrid systems combining bio-inspired methods with methods from different domains
- Tools, testbeds, and deployment issues in bio-inspired and synthetic biological systems
- Real-world applications and standardization of bio-inspired systems and
synthetic biological systems
- Socially-aware, game theoretic, and other metaphor-driven interdisciplinary approaches to bio-inspired systems and synthetic biological systems
- Change management, interoperability, and standards


- Organic computing systems
- Bio-inspired cooperative networking
- Engineering emergence: techniques, applications, and practice
- Bio-inspired cooperation and coordination in swarm robotics and multi-robot systems
- Bio-inspired learning mechanisms in single and multi-agent/component systems
- Nano-scale communications and networking
- Design and engineering of swarm systems
- Bio-inspired intrusion detection in networks and multi-robot systems
- Bio-inspired processing of audio and visual information
- Modeling and application of gene regulatory networks
- Bioinformatics
