ICTCC 2016 : 2nd International Conference on NaTure of Computation and Communication
Call For Papers
The ICTCC Conference is a place for highly original ideas about how the nature is going to shape computing systems of the future. Hence, it focuses on rigorous approaches and cutting-edge solutions, which encompass three classes of major methods:
- Those that take inspiration from nature for the development of novel problem solving techniques;
- Those that are based on the use of computers or networks to synthesize natural phenomena; and
- Those that employ natural materials (e.g., molecules,) to compute or communicate.
Its purpose is to make a formal basis more accessible to researchers, scientists, professionals and students as well as developers and practitioners in ICT by providing them with state-of-the-art research results, applications, opportunities and future trends.
We hope that the conference will receive many papers and the participation of a large number of students, researchers, and professionals from all over the world.
Original papers are solicited for the ICTCC 2016. In particular, theoretical contributions should be formally stated and justified, and practical applications should be based on their firm formal basis. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
SCOPE OF TOPICS:
Collective intelligence in computing/communicating
Computation/communication based on chaos and dynamical systems
Computation based on physical principles such as relativistic, optical, spatial, collision-based computing
Massive parallel computing
Swam intelligence in computing/communicating
The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT
All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries
