CFP: BICT 2015 Special Track on Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)
8th International Conference on Bio-inspired Information and Communications Technologies (formerly BIONETICS)

December 3 (Thu) - December 5 (Sat), 2015
New York City, NY, USA

Complex adaptive systems involve many components, often called agents that interact and adapt or learn. It is a system composed of many interacting agents, such that the collective behavior of those agents together is more than the sum of their individual behaviors. The collective behaviors are sometimes also called emergent behaviors, and a complex adaptive system can thus be said to be a system of interacting parts that displays emergent behavior. 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This special track seeks high-quality original and unpublished papers in the following topics including but not limited to these topics: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
  • Immune system
  • Information theory
  • Intelligent system
  • Pattern formation
  • Risk management system
  • Social network
  • Socio-physics
  • Synchronization
