**** JOURNAL ****
Selected papers will be invited to the Journal of Network and
Computer Applications, Elsevier.

**** 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 algorithms for parallel and distributed computing
* Bio-inspired algorithms for P2P, Grid and Cloud systems
* Bio-inspired techniques for the construction and management of
distributed systems
* Parallel and distributed techniques of Swarm Intelligence:
ant colonies, bird flocks, etc.
* Parallel and distributed evolutionary algorithms
* High performance tools for bio-inspired algorithms and systems
* Application of bio-inspired algorithms to routing, resource
discovery, scheduling in parallel and distributed systems
* Bio-inspired algorithms for data mining, bioinformatics, etc.
**** ERCIM session ****
The workshop will include a session dedicated to the "Self-* and
Adaptive Mechanisms" topic of the ERCIM CoreGRID Working Group.
This ERCIM research topic is dedicated to adaptive computing
principles of large-scale distributed computing platforms and
Grid systems.
Topics of interest include:
* Adaptive service discovery and composition
* Elastic management of the Grid infrastructure (virtualization)
* Adaptive data management and distribution (P2P)
* Adaptive execution methods (i.e. workflow management)
* Desktop Grid availability and prediction algorithms
Papers submitted to this session will be reviewed in a separate
process. Depending on the overall number of accepted papers,
the ERCIM session may be scheduled in a day aside, during ICAC.

The call is open to all members of the Autonomic Computing and
Distributed Systems communities and to the members of the ERCIM
Research Topic on "Self-* and Adaptive mechanisms". Original papers,
no longer than 8 two-column pages, are invited. Papers must be
submitted through the Web site Use the ACM
format available at
and submit your paper in PDF format. Papers will be peer-reviewed and
judged on merits including correctness, originality, technical
strength, presentation, and relevance to the workshop themes. At least
one author of each accepted submission must attend the workshop.
