Call for Papers

The modeling and the analysis of biological systems has attracted the interest of several research communities. The main aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers in computational systems biology, concurrency theory, formal methods, and related fields that are interested to present recent results and to discuss new ideas concerning such research directions. We welcome contributions that address both theoretical and applied contributions related to the relevance and potential of formal methods in biology. Topics of interest include (but not limited to):

  • Biologically inspired models and calculi;
  • Theoretical links and comparison of different biological inspired formal models;
  • Qualitative biological modeling;
  • Quantitative semantics;
  • Modelling, analysis and simulation tools for biologically systems.
  • The submitted papers will go through a peer-review process and accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS) to be held on December 1–3, 2014 Boston, Massachusetts, United States.
