NICSO 2007 - International Workshop on Nature Inspired Cooperative
Strategies for Optimization

Acireale, Italy, November 8-10 2007
http://www.dmi.unict.it/nicso2007/


   *** CALL FOR PAPERS ***
Biological and natural processes have always been a source of
inspiration for computer science and information technology in many
real-world applications. Its well known that biological entities, from
single cell organisms - like bacteria - to humans, often engage on a
rich repertoire of social interaction that could range from altruistic
cooperation through open conflict. One specific kind of social
interaction is cooperative problem solving (CPS), where a group of
autonomous entities work together to achieve certain goal.

NICSO 2007 is the second edition of the Workshop and it aims are to
give a deeper investigation and a vigorous exchange of ideas about
emerging research areas in problem solving strategies.

All submitted papers will be blind reviewed and acceptance will be
based on originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity.

Selected contributions will be published in the book series on
*Studies in Computational Intelligence*, SPRINGER-VERLAG. The length
of each contribution will not exceed 12 pages. Best accepted papers
will be published in an International Journal.
