WORKSHOP ON COLLECTIVE BEHAVIORS INSPIRED BY BIOLOGICAL AND BIOCHEMICAL 
SYSTEMS
http://www.seas.upenn.edu/~sloizou/academics/ICRA07WS/

At the
IEEE 2007 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION
10-14 April 2007, Rome, Italy
http://www.icra07.org/

************************************************************************************************

Important Dates:
*******************
December 15, 2006: Paper submission
January 10,    2007:  Notification of acceptance
January 20,    2007:  Final submission

Scope:
********
The purpose of this full day workshop is to bring together researchers
from a wide range of disciplines to discuss modeling and control in
biological and biochemical systems, and the potential for establishing
a paradigm for systematic modeling, analysis and synthesis of robotic
behaviors. Biological and biochemical systems, although they are
mainly regulated by local interactions, have the capacity to exhibit
large scale collective behaviors. Their capabilities of scalability,
modularity and robustness, to name a few, provide an inspiring source
for new technologies. The scope of the workshop will span systems at
the molecular and cellular level (for example, reaction-diffusion
systems, biochemical regulatory networks) as well as the level of
large organisms (for example, flocking and swarming behaviors).

Topics:
********
Relevant research areas of interest include (but are not limited to)
communication, computation and control of large scale robotic swarms,
modeling and analysis of
biological and biochemical systems, and synthesis of controllers and
behaviors for distributed systems.

Submissions:
****************
We solicit submissions of high quality papers reporting significant
research results. Submitted papers should follow the ICRA-2007 paper
format instructions available at http://www.icra07.org/  Submissions
must be sent by e-mail to sloizou at seas.upenn.edu as a PDF file. In the
body of the e-mail message you must specify the following:

- paper title
- name, affiliation, and email of all authors
- name, email, and postal address of corresponding author
- Phone and fax of corresponding author
- Keywords (max 5)
- Abstract (maximum 200 words).

All submissions will be acknowledged within a few days. Papers will be
reviewed for quality and relevance and the decision of acceptance will
be mailed to the corresponding author. Accepted papers will be
included in the workshop notes, distributed at the workshop, and
published on the workshop's web site. At least one author of each
accepted paper must register in ICRA-2007 and attend the workshop.
