Swarm intelligence is a relatively new discipline that deals with the study of 
self-organizing processes both in nature and in artificial systems. 
ANTS 2012 will give researchers in swarm intelligence the opportunity to meet, 
to present their latest research, and to discuss current developments and applications.


Invited talks:  

Prof. Nigel R. Franks (University of Bristol, UK) on 
  "Ants, Bees and Brains", 
Prof. Vijay Kumar (University of Pennsylvania, USA) on 
  "Architectures, abstractions, and algorithms for large teams of robots", 
Prof. Dirk Helbing (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) on 
  "Towards Simulating the Foundations of Society"


Best Paper Award: 

A best paper award will be presented at the conference. Continuing the tradition 
of the ANTS Conference Series, the prize winner will receive a sculpture of an 
ant expressly created for the ANTS Conference by the Italian sculptor Matteo Pugliese.



Conference proceedings: vol. 7461 of LNCS, Springer, 2012; 
Selected papers in Swarm Intelligence journal


We are looking forward to seeing you in Brussels.
