The 5th Int'l ICST Conference on Bio-Inspired Models of Network,
Information and Computing Systems

December 1 - 3, 2010
Boston, MA, USA

Technical cooperation with Create-Net, ACM SIGSIM and Springer

BIONETICS 2010 aims to provide a world-leading and unique opportunity for
bringing together researchers and practitioners from diverse disciplines
that seek the understanding of the fundamental principles and design
strategies in biological systems and leverage those understandings to
build bio-inspired systems. We are soliciting high-quality original papers
in the following topics (but not limited to):

* Signal/information processing and communication models in biological
systems
* Bio-inspired formal models and methods
* Bio-inspired algorithms and mechanisms
* Bio-inspired software and hardware systems
* Biomimetics, bioenginereing and synthetic biological systems
* Modeling and simulation of bio-inspired systems, biological systems and
synthetic biological systems
* Self-* properties in bio-inspired systems, biological systems and
synthetic biological systems
* Design and performance issues in bio-inspired systems and synthetic
biological systems
* Tools, testbeds and deployment aspects in bio-inspired systems and
synthetic biological systems
* Real-world applications and standardization of bio-inspired systems and
synthetic biological systems
* Socially-aware, game theoretic and other metaphor-driven
interdisciplinary approaches to bio-inspired systems and synthetic
biological systems

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