BICT 2015 aims to provide a world-leading and multidisciplinary venue for researchers and practitioners in diverse disciplines that seek the understanding of key principles, processes and mechanisms in biological systems and leverage those understandings to develop novel information and communications technologies (ICT). BICT 2015 targets two thrusts:

THRUST 1: Indirect Bioinspiration (ICT designed after biological principles, processes and mechanisms). Examples include evolutionary computation, artificial gene regulatory networks, neural networks/computation, swarm intelligence, cellular automata, artificial immune systems, amorphous computing, artificial life, artificial chemistry, reaction-diffusion computing, self-organization, chaotic systems, social networks, game theory, computational epidemics, agent-based modeling, and nature-inspired models and calculi.

THRUST 2: Direct Bioinspiration (ICT utilizing biological materials and systems). Examples include biosensing, molecular assembly, cellular computing, molecular computing/communication, membrane computing, bacterial computing/communication, DNA computing and memory, Physarum computing, quantum computing, biometric security/authentication, brain-computer interfaces and energy harvesting from biological sources.

Expected, but not exclusive, topics are:

* Signal/information processing and communication for bio-inspired ICT
* Data management and analytics for bio-inspired ICT
* Algorithms and their applications for bio-inspired ICT
* Formal models and methods for bio-inspired ICT
* Bio-inspired software and hardware systems
* Modeling, simulations and empirical experiments of bio-inspired ICT
* Self-* and stability properties in bio-inspired ICT
* Security, robustness and resilience in bio-inspired ICT
* Design, configuration, performance and management issues in bio-inspired ICT
* Tools, testbeds and deployment aspects in bio-inspired ICT
* Applications, experiences and standardization of bio-inspired ICT

Application domains include, but not limited to, autonomic computing, bioinformatics, biomedical engineering, computer networks, computer vision, data mining, e-health, green computing and networking, grid/cloud computing, intelligent agents, mechanical engineering, nanoscale/molecular computing and communication, optimization, pervasive computing, robotics, security, social networks, software engineering and systems engineering.
