Bio-ADIT 2004 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION


各位

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。
是非ともご参加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
16年1月15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 CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

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

January 29 - 30, 2004

Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland

Website: http://lslwww.epfl.ch/bio-adit2004/

Sponsored by
- Osaka University Forum,
- Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, and
- 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
  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.
