Happy New Year! We cordially invite you to attend the 2007 International Conference on Bio-Inspired Computing: Theories and Applications (BIC-TA 2007), which will be held on September 14¨C17, 2007 in Zhengzhou Henan Province, China.
The conference is organized by the Peking University, the Zhengzhou University of Light Industry as well as the Huazhong University of Science & Technology, and technically co-sponsored by the Zhongyuan University of Technology, the North China University of Water Conservancy and Electric Power, and financially supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China.
Just like the name of the conference, the theme for this conference is Bio-Inspired Computing: Theories and Applications. Only original high quality papers related to this theme are especially solicited, including theories, methodologies, and applications in science and technology. Topics covering industrial issues/applications and academic research into bio-inspired computing will be welcome.
All submissions will be thoroughly peer-reviewed by experts in the field based on originality, significance and clarity, only papers presenting novel research results or successful innovative applications are seriously considered for publication.
A pre-proceedings volume will be available during the conference. The expanded and revised version of all accepted papers at BIC-TA 2007 will be published after the conference in international journals indexed by SCI-Expanded.
