BICT - DEFENSE 2015 : Bio-inspired Algorithms and Technologies for Cyber Security and Defense Applications (DEFENSE)
Call For Papers
CFP: BICT 2015 Special Track on Bio-inspired Algorithms and Technologies for Cyber Security and Defense Applications (DEFENSE)
9th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)
December 3 (Thu) – December 5, 2015 (Sat)
New York, New York, United States
The cyber security and defense communities are focused on innovative techniques for managing an overwhelmingly and exponentially growing supply of problems and data that often restricts real-time analysis. In some cases, traditional techniques cannot provide reasonable solutions, or may not be applicable at all (for real-time solutions). Many of these problems are subject to uncertainties and dynamism due to the nature of military applications and cyber domain. Bio-inspired algorithms (e.g., evolutionary algorithms, swarm optimization etc.) are commonly used to solve these problems because of their general capability of global search without trapping in local optima.
This special track – Cyber Security and Defense Applications – will provide a forum for researchers from academia, government, and industry to exchange ideas, discuss the latest developments, challenges, and opportunities, and exhibit the latest achievements and findings in the areas that benefit from bio-inspired algorithms and technologies.
This special track seeks high-quality and unpublished papers on the following topics, including but not limited to:
Bio-inspired algorithms and technologies applied to Cyber Security
Cyber modeling and simulation
Bio-inspired algorithms and technologies applied to Defense Applications
Advanced architectures for defense operations
Disaster relief solutions
Military deployable applications
