Call for Participation/Presentation
Nature, an everlasting source of inspiration, has been very successful in solving complex problems. The urge of living organisms toward survival often drives the emergence of intelligent behaviors which motivates the theory, design and application of Computational Intelligence paradigms. The mimicking of nature provides alternative solution techniques to problems that were not satisfactorily resolved by other traditional techniques. These new techniques are being applied successfully to a variety of scientific and engineering dynamic problems.
This full-day workshop focuses on bio-inspired techniques that have been successfully applied to solve complex problems in computing, and especially in computer networking. This workshop will be of interest to researchers, designers and practitioners engaged in nature-inspired methods, models and techniques.
In this workshop, we bring together well known researchers in the field. We are pleased to announce that Prof. Andries Engelbrecht, Director of the Computational Intelligence Research Group (CIRG) of the University of Pretoria, South Africa (author of: Computational Intelligence, An Introduction, John Wiley, October 2002) and Dr. Tim Blackwell Joint programme leader Music Computing of Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK will participate in the Workshop, and will deliver keynote talks.
These talks will be supplemented by two students from Prof. Engelbreht's research group. Furthermore, local experts and students will introduce us into their work in this exciting field of research, including research results from the IPE-funded MiND2C Project.
Tentative workshop agenda will be available here.
