CFP: BICT 2014 Special Track on Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)

8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)

December 1 (Mon) - December 3, 2014 (Wed)
Boston, MA, USA


A complex adaptive system is a system composed of many interacting agents that adapt and learn so that they collectively perform emergent behaviors that individuals cannot. Examples include ecosystems, stock markets and economies, biological evolution and indeed the whole of human society. This special track seeks high-quality original and unpublished papers in the following topics including but not limited to these topics:

  • Adaptation
  • Agent-based modeling
  • Biological evolution
  • Cellular automata
  • Collective action
  • Criticality
  • Dynamical systems
  • Economics and market
  • Ecosystem
  • Emergence
  • Evolutionary system
  • Game theory
  • Human societies
  • Artificial immune system
  • Information theory
  • Intelligent system
  • Pattern formation
  • Risk management system
  • Social network
  • Socio-physics
  • Synchronization
