  This  unique  combination of the two broad research fields
  will stimulate thought-provoking discussions about
  new developments and challenges, and will contribute
  to their future synergies.

  Biologically Inspired Computing
   - Reinforcement Learning
   - Neural Networks
   - Evolutionary Computing
   - Artificial Immune Systems
   - Swarms and Collective Systems
   - Cognitive Modelling
  Computers in Biology
   - Computational Biology
   - Genomics
   - Proteomics
   - Intelligent Diagnostic and Support Systems
   - E-health
   - Robotics
  Biological Applications
   - Computational Intelligence
   - Machine Learning
   - Data Mining
   - Knowledge Discovery
   - Agent-based Systems
   - Fuzzy Systems

=> SPECIAL SESSIONS, WORKSHOPS and TUTORIALS <=

  We invite the submission of proposals for Special Topic Sessions.
  Proposals to organize such sessions should include
  the following information:
  - name and address of the proposer(s)
  - title of the session
  - brief description of the session
  Each special session will have at least five paper presentations.
  The special session chairs will be responsible for
  soliciting the papers, reviewing, and making final decisions,
  in consultation with the conference chairs. The description
  of the session should include a short description
  on how the session will be advertised.
  Email your proposal to the Organization Chair Loren Wyard-Scott
  (wyard at ece.ualberta.ca).

=> VENUE <=

  BICCIB'05 is to be held in the pastoral setting of the
  Canadian Rocky Mountains in the town of Banff, Alberta.
  Spanning countless valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows
  and rivers, Banff National Park is one of the  world's premier
  destination spots  (http://www.pc.gc.ca/pn-np/ab/banff/).
  The park is a UNESCO world heritage site and encompasses
  the  towns of Banff and Lake Louise. World-renown for scenic
  hiking, the park is an ideal location for pre-/post-conference relaxation.
