BICT 2020 : (Virtual) 12th EAI International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies
Call For Papers
Due to the safety concerns and travel restrictions caused by COVID-19, EAI BICT 2020 will take place online in a live stream.
Non-authors and Co-Authors of already registered papers can register for access to the live stream completely free of charge.
BICT 2020 aims to provide a world-leading and multidisciplinary venue for researchers and practitioners in diverse disciplines that seek the understanding of key principles, processes and mechanisms in biological systems and leverage those understandings to develop novel information and communications technologies.
BICT 2020 will feature the state-of-the-art keynote speeches, parallel technical sessions, focused special tracks, interactive demo/poster sessions, tutorials, and informative co-located workshops.
BICT 2020 targets three thrusts:
THRUST 1: Direct Bioinspiration (systems utilizing biological materials, processes, and systems)
-Bacterial computing and communication
-Biometric security and privacy
-Brain-computer and human-computer interface
-Cellular and membrane computing
-Chemical signaling and communication
-DNA computing and memory
-Energy harvesting from biological sources
-Molecular assembly computing and communication
THRUST 2: Indirect Bioinspiration (systems and application design upon biological principle, processes and mechanisms)
-Artificial chemistry, immune systems, gene regulatory networks and life
-Autonomous vehicle systems
-Biological process and data analysis
-Cyber security, privacy and intelligence
-Internet of Things (IoT)
-Modeling and simulation
-Nature-inspired models and calculi
-Smart services and cities
THRUST 3: Foundational Bioinspiration (biology and ICT evolving similar schemes and validity)
-Agent based models
-Biological theory change and its impact on corresponding bioinspired technology
-Costly signaling (Proof of work, stake, etc.)
-Identification of theoretical obstacles that prevent transition from biology to technology
-Measures of validity and validation of methodology
-Mechanistic adaptability of theories from philosophy of biology to technology
-Natural kinds and species (i.e., classification of bioinspired technology)
-Recommender and verifier systems
-Signaling games, equilibria and conventions
-Smart contracts (Block chains, ICO, Governance)
All registered papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.
BICT proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).
Authors of selected best accepted and presented papers will be invited to submit an extended version to:
-Mobile Networks and Applications (MONET) Journal (IF:2.390)
-IEEE Transactions on NanoBioscience (IF:1.927)
Additional publication opportunities:
-EAI Transactions series (Open Access)
