Natural Computing (NC) is an emerging field in formal language theory, which is mainly focused on the computing capabilities of formal devices that abstract some natural complex phenomena. These bio-inspired models include both, classic computing devices (such as cellular automata, Lindenmayer systems, DNA computing, evolutionary computation, Multi-agent systems or artificial neural networks) and the latest and most innovative models of computation such as Membrane Computing or Networks of Evolutionary Processors.
Regarding Multi-Agent Systems (MAS), the concept of agent can be found in a range of disciplines as, for example, computer networks, software engineering, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, distributed and concurrent systems, mobile systems, telematics, information retrieval, etc.
NC and hence MAS offer strong models for representing complex and dynamic real-world environment. We are convinced that a field where those technologies can offer good solutions and alternative frameworks to classic models is the area of processing natural and formal languages. This is why we propose a special session on language(s) applications of MAS and bio-inspired computing devices.
The aim of this special session is to bring together researchers from different areas that have in common the use of multi-agent and bio-inspired systems to approach different aspects of natural/formal language. We aim to bring together researchers that are developing models for dealing with languages in both, theoretical and applied lines of research.


We are interested in bio-inspired models themselves (different from artificial neural networks), that is, in (but not only) their:

1. Simulation
2. Analysis
3. Programming/developing tools

and in their application to (but not only):

1. Theoretical descriptions of languages based on multi-agent systems
2. Natural language generation and recognition
3. Dialogue modelling
4. Speech recognition
5. Semantics and ontologies
6. Parsing technologies
7. Simulation of natural language evolution
8. Bio-Inspired and computational models in language learning

In general, contributions on any interaction between multi-agent and bio-inspired computing systems and natural/ formal languages are welcome.


The procedure for the submission of the papers will be made through the IWANN2015 web section. The authors are asked to indicate the Special Session title to which their paper is submitted.

Authors must prepare original manuscripts which should not exceed 14 pages in the LNCS Springer-Verlag format. Author guidelines may be obtained at Springer site.

Submission will be accomplished through the Section CONTRIBUTIONS/ SUBMISSIONS, in PDF format.

The final versions of accepted works must be sent before 2 April 2015 in a compressed file (.zip or .rar) including the following:

* Completed copyright form. 
* Final PDF file (for reference).
* Source (input) files:
* For example, LaTeX2e files for the text and PS/EPS or PDF/JPG files for all figures. 
* Any further style files and fonts you have used together with your source files and that are not generally available at CTAN. 
* Final DVI file (for papers prepared using LaTeX/TeX). 
* RTF files (for word-processing systems other than LaTeX/TeX).


* Paper submission deadline: 6 February 2015
* Notification of provisional acceptance: 21 March 2015
* Submission of final papers: 2 April 2015
* Conference dates: 10-12 June 2015
