Special session bio-inspired for SIES 2016 : Special Session on Bio-Inspired Embedded Systems in Industry from the 11th IEEE International Symposium,on Industrial Embedded Systems (SIES 2016)
Call For Papers

Natural evolution has developed different approaches in various domains to cope with environmental problems. For
example, the brain processes signals through sight to manage the environment and to detect threats and menaces. Moreover,
it also combines information from multiple sensors to adapt to the environment - eyes, ears, skin, echolocation etc. DNA is
another example of how efficient nature is in iteratively selecting the most efficient form of life to withstand environmental
change. These examples have inspired researchers for centuries (neural networks, genetics algorithms). As like mechanical
engineers, material scientists and electronic and computer scientists try to mimic nature to solve problems allowing for more
efficient interaction with the environment. Consequently, bio-inspired approaches have a major impact in computer science,
electronic engineering and embedded systems. However, until recent years, bio-inspired approaches were not considered
reliable enough to be integrated into industrial systems. That view changed during the turn of the century with advances in
robotics, a need for fast non-destructive control and predictive maintenance, data processing and classifications etc. Bioinspired
approaches are now extended to the design of network topologies and protocols. This led to recent advances in
collaborative multi-agent systems and even self-organizing robots systems.
This special session's objective is to provide an overview of the various bio-inspired approaches used for the design of
embedded systems, as well software as hardware. Topics are related, but not limited, to:
- bio-inspired hardware architecture : VLSI design, MEMs, bio-inspired processors, sensors, memory structures, MEMRistors,
- bio-inspired sensor design : echodopler, fusion of sensor, compressed sampling;
- bio-inspired distributed systems: robotics, bio-inspired collaborative multi-agent systems;
- bio-inspired signal processing (software and hardware): classification problems, Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), features
- bio-inspired design automation : genetic algorithm for computer aided design;
- bio-inspired robotics :bio-inspired collaborative multi-agent systems;
- bio-inspired system resilience : fault detection, multi-cells systems for resilience.
Submission of Papers: Manuscripts must be submitted electronically in PDF format, according to the instructions contained in the
Conference web site. Contributions must contain original unpublished work. Papers that have been concurrently submitted to other
conferences or journals (double submissions) will be automatically rejected.
Two types of submissions are solicited: Long Papers - from 6 to 10 double-column pages (typically 8 pages).
Work-in-Progress Papers - limited to 4 double-column pages. For further details, please consult the conference web pages.
Paper Acceptance: Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference by one of the authors. The final manuscript must be
accompanied by a registration form and a registration fee payment proof. All conference attendees, including authors and session
chairpersons, must pay the conference registration fee, and their travel expenses.
