Final CFP: Bio-ADIT 2004


各位

先般、Bio-ADIT 2004 の論文募集案内をさせていただきましたが、この度、最
終の論文募集案内をさせていただきます。

生物界に学びながら先進的な情報技術を創出しようという動きが、世界的に新
たな潮流になっています。このような動きは、これまでの情報技術をライフサ
イエンスに応用してきたのとは逆の流れであり、情報科学技術分野にブレーク
スルーをもたらす可能性を有しているものとして期待されています。

このような潮流の一つとして、当方、文部科学省21世紀COEプログラムを
推進中です。その概要につきましては、次のURLを参照下さい。

http://www-nishio.ist.osaka-u.ac.jp/COE/

来たる平成16年1月29日、30日の両日、この「生物界に学ぶ情報技術の
創出」に関する国際ワークショップ The First International Workshop on 
Biologically Inspired Approaches to Advanced Information Technology を
スイス連邦工科大学ローザンヌ校(EPFL)で開催致します。奮って論文をご投稿
下さいますように心よりお願い申しあげます。締切日は、平成15年9月5日
です。

なお、会議録は、最終的には、Springerのレクチャノート・シリーズとして刊
行されることになっております。

                 Bio-ADIT 2004 FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS

The First International Workshop on 
Biologically Inspired Approaches to Advanced Information Technology

January 29 - 30, 2004

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland

Web site: http://lslwww.epfl.ch/bio-adit2004/

Sponsored by 
- Osaka University Forum
- Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL)
- The 21st Century Center of Excellence Program of The Ministry of 
  Education, Culture, Sports, Science and  Technology (MEXT), Japan, 
  under the Program Title "Opening Up New Information Technologies for 
  Building a Networked Symbiosis Environment".

Biologically inspired approaches have already proved successful in 
achieving major breakthroughs in a wide variety of problems in 
information technology (IT).  A more recent trend is to explore the 
applicability of bio-inspired approaches to the development of 
self-organizing, evolving, adaptive and autonomous information 
technologies, which will meet the requirements of next-generation 
information systems, such as diversity, scalability, robustness, and 
resilience.  These new technologies will become a base on which to 
build a networked symbiotic environment for pleasant, symbiotic 
society of human beings in the 21st century.

Bio-ADIT 2004 will be the first international workshop to present 
original research results in the field of bio-inspired approaches to 
advanced information technologies.  It will also serve to foster the 
connection between biological paradigms and solutions to building the 
next-generation information systems.

SCOPE: 

The primary focus of the workshop is on new and original research 
results in the areas of information systems inspired by biology. We 
invite you to submit papers that present novel, challenging, and 
innovative results.  The topics include all aspects of bio-inspired 
information technologies in networks, distributed/parallel systems, 
hardware (including robotics) and software.  We also encourage you to 
submit papers dealing with:

  - Self-organizing, self-repairing, self-replicating and
    self-stabilizing systems
  - Evolving and adapting systems
  - Autonomous and evolutionary software and robotic systems
  - Scalable, robust and resilient systems
  - Complex biosystems
  - Gene, protein and metabolic networks
  - Symbiosis networks

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

Authors are invited to submit complete and original papers.  Papers 
submitted should not have been previously published in any forum, nor 
be under review for any journal or other conference.  All submitted 
papers will be refereed for quality, correctness, originality and 
relevance.  All accepted papers will be published in the conference 
proceedings.  It is also planned to publish accepted papers as a book. 
Manuscripts should include an abstract and be limited to 16 pages in 
single spaced and single column format.  Submissions should include 
the title, author(s), author's affiliation, e-mail address, fax number 
and postal address. In the case of multiple authors, an indication of 
which author is responsible for correspondence and preparing the 
camera ready paper should also be included.  Electronic submission is 
strongly encouraged. Preferred file formats are PDF (.pdf) or 
Postscript (.ps).  Visit our Web site at 
http://lslwww.epfl.ch/bio-adit2004/ for more information.  Please 
contact Dr. Murata if you have to submit hard copies.  Manuscripts 
should be submitted by September 5, 2003 through the Bio-ADIT Web 
site. Please contact the technical program co-chairs for any
