BICT 2015 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 (ICT). BICT 2015 targets two thrusts:

THRUST 1: Indirect Bioinspiration (ICT designed after biological principles, processes and mechanisms). Examples include evolutionary computation, artificial gene regulatory networks, neural networks/computation, swarm intelligence, cellular automata, artificial immune systems, amorphous computing, artificial life, artificial chemistry, reaction-diffusion computing, self-organization, chaotic systems, social networks, game theory, computational epidemics, agent-based modeling, and nature-inspired models and calculi.

THRUST 2: Direct Bioinspiration (ICT utilizing biological materials and systems). Examples include biosensing, molecular assembly, cellular computing, molecular computing/communication, membrane computing, bacterial computing/communication, DNA computing and memory, Physarum computing, quantum computing, biometric security/authentication, brain-computer interfaces and energy harvesting from biological sources.

Expected, but not exclusive, topics are:

    Signal/information processing and communication for bio-inspired ICT
    Data management and analytics for bio-inspired ICT
    Algorithms and their applications for bio-inspired ICT
    Formal models and methods for bio-inspired ICT
    Bio-inspired software and hardware systems
    Modeling, simulations and empirical experiments of bio-inspired ICT
    Self-* and stability properties in bio-inspired ICT
    Security, robustness and resilience in bio-inspired ICT
    Design, configuration, performance and management issues in bio-inspired ICT
    Tools, testbeds and deployment aspects in bio-inspired ICT
    Applications, experiences and standardization of bio-inspired ICT

Application domains include, but not limited to, autonomic computing, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering, computer networks, computer vision, data mining, e-health, green computing and networking, grid/cloud computing, intelligent agents, mechanical engineering, nanoscale/molecular computing and communication, optimization, pervasive computing, robotics, security, social networks, software engineering and systems engineering.


In addition to the regular track that covers general/mainstream topics, BICT 2015 features the following special tracks that focus on specific, emerging or underrepresented topics.

    Artificial, Biological and Bio-Inspired Intelligence (ABBII)
    Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering (AISE)
    Bio-inspired Wireless Network Security (BWNS)
    Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)
    Combinatorial Optimization (COP)
    Engineering Applications from Molecular and Gene Regulatory Networks (EmNet)
    Molecular Communication and Networking (MCN)
    Modularization for Practical Software Engineering (MPSE)


Authors are invited to submit regular papers (up to 8 pages each), short papers (up to 4 pages each) or poster/demo papers (up to 2 pages each) in ACM's paper template. Up to two extra pages are allowed for each paper with extra page charges. See for more details.


All accepted paper will be published through ACM Digital Library and submitted for indexing to DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL). Selected papers will be considered for publication in leading journals including:

    IEEE Transactions on NanoBioscience
    ACM/Springer Mobile Networks and Applications
    Elsevier Information and Software Technology
    Elsevier Information Sciences
    Elsevier Nano Communication Networks Journal
    Springer Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling
    Int'l Journal of Soft Computing and Networking
