CALL FOR PAPERS


NICSO 2011 is the fifth edition of the International Workshop on
Nature Inspired Cooperative Strategies for Optimization and aims at
promoting deeper investigations on cooperative problem solving
strategies and bringing together international researchers and
practitioners from different disciplines to exchange ideas about
emerging new research areas. Biological and other natural processes
have always been a source of inspiration for computer science and
information technology. We seek contributions that are inspired by
Nature and that encompass a range of spatio-temporal scales, for
visionary conceptions of information processing and computation as
pertaining to cooperation mechanisms in the context of problem
solving.

Submitted papers will undergo a rigorous blind peer review process.
Selection criteria will be based on relevance, originality,
significance, impact, technical soundness and quality of the
presentation. Contributions are expected to provide original results,
insights and experimental innovations. Manuscripts must be in PDF, not
exceeding 12 pages and conforming to the Latex template at the
Springer's Instructions for Authors page. Contributions are welcome to
submission through the system available at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=nicso2011.

As in previous editions, the accepted papers will be published in the
book series on STUDIES IN COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE (Springer)
indexed by ISI Web of Science, DBLP, Ulrichs, SCOPUS, MathSciNet,
Current Mathematical Publications, Mathematical Reviews, Zentralblatt
Math: MetaPress and Springerlink.

Authors of a selection of the best papers published in the book will
be invited to submit an extended and improved version of the work to a
special issue of the JOURNAL OF MEMETIC COMPUTING (Springer)
(http://www.springerlink.com/content/g41239886q5j/).

At NICSO 2011 a BEST PAPER competition will also take place!

Topics of interest are (but not limited to):

Adaptive Behaviour
Ant Colonies
Amorphous Computing
Artificial Life
Artificial Immune Systems
Bioinformatics
Bio-inspired Architectures
Complex Systems
