**** JOURNAL ****
Selected papers will be invited to the Natural Computing Journal,
Springer (indexed by ISI).
After the past two editions, extended versions of selected
papers were included in special issues of Future Generation
Computer Systems, Elsevier (vol. 26/6), and New Generation
Computing, Springer (to appear in 2011).

**** SCOPE ****
Computer systems are characterized by an ever growing complexity and
a pronounced distributed nature. Centralized or hierarchical
architectures are becoming impractical because they have poor
scalability and fault-tolerance characteristics. Decentralized
architectures and algorithms, for example P2P and Grid systems, are
increasingly popular, but they need new types of algorithms to be
efficiently managed.

Bio-inspired algorithms and techniques feature fault-tolerant and
self-adaptive behaviours that help to boost the autonomic nature of
distributed systems, and are proving effective for the solution of
hard parallel and distributed problems. These techniques are sometimes
"evolutionary", as they can exploit genetic rules for the selection
and recombination of candidate solutions. In other cases, solutions
rely on the operations of agents, whose behaviour is inspired by
biological systems, including ant colonies, bird flocks, honey bees,
bacteria, and many more. In such systems, "swarm intelligence" emerges
from the interaction of a large number of very simple agents.

Bio-inspired algorithms and systems are routinely applied to hard and
large problems in a variety of areas. Some examples are optimization
problems solved with genetic algorithms, routing strategies inspired
by honey bee behaviour, resource discovery and data mining
computations in Grid, Cloud and P2P frameworks, achieved by ant-
inspired algorithms, and so on.

This full day workshop 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
bio-inspired algorithms and systems.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Bio-inspired and self-* algorithms for parallel and distributed computing
* Bio-inspired and self-* algorithms for P2P, Grid and Cloud systems
* Bio-inspired and self-* techniques for the construction and management of distributed systems
* Bio-inspired and self-* algorithms for data distribution, discovery, service composition, etc.
* Parallel and distributed techniques of Swarm Intelligence: ant colonies, bird flocks, etc.
* Parallel and distributed evolutionary algorithms
* High performance tools for bio-inspired and self-* algorithms and systems
* Application of bio-inspired and self-* algorithms to routing, resource discovery, scheduling in parallel and distributed systems
* Bio-inspired and self-* algorithms for data mining, bioinformatics, etc.
* Bio-inspired and self-* algorithms for social networks
* Bio-inspired and self-* algorithms for energy saving in distributed networks
