Call for Papers for the Special Track on Artificial Life and Bio-inspired
Robotics (ALBR) in the 5th International ICST Conference on Bio-Inspired
Models of Network, Information, and Computing Systems (BIONETICS2010)

ALBR solicits papers addressing all aspects of artificial life,
biologically inspired information processing paradigms that lead to theory
and practice in robotics. The track will provide an arena of exchanging
ideas and presenting the state-of-the-art of multiple disciplines of life
science, theoretical computer science, and ICT (information and
communications technology). The track encourages submissions of technical
papers, survey papers, and reports on latest progress. The specific topic
areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
•	The fundamental theory of artificial life including methodology and
mathematical models
•	Evolutionary software, simulation and programming
•	Data structure, algorithm design and computational complexity analysis
•	Nonlinear dynamics including chaos, fluctuation, and synchronization
•	Cellular automata, artificial chemistry, and multi-agent systems
•	Swarm intelligence, ant colony optimization, and applications
•	Wetware evolution, molecular computing
•	Robotics theory and applications
•	Planning, navigation, and control for robots
•	Signaling processing and machine intelligence
•	Mechatronics and applications
•	Computational neuroscience and brain science
•	Speech understanding and computational linguistics
•	Integration of communication networks and robots
•	Perspective on nanotechnology and robotics

Track Chair
Jian-Qin Liu, National Institute of Information and Communications
Technology, Japan
