Call For Papers

Technology is taking us to a world where myriads of heavily networked devices interact with the physical world in multiple ways, and at multiple scales, from the global Internet scale down to micro and nano-devices. Many of these devices are highly mobile and autonomous, and must adapt to the surrounding environment in a totally unsupervised way. The fundamental research challenge is the design of robust decentralized computing systems, capable of operating under changing environments and noisy input, and yet exhibit the desired behavior and response time, under constraints such as energy consumption, size, and processing power. These systems should be able to adapt and learn how to react to unforeseen scenarios as well as to display properties comparable to social entities. Biological systems are able to handle many of these challenges with an elegance and efficiency still far beyond current human artifacts. Based on this observation, bio-inspired approaches have been proposed in the past years as a strategy to handle the complexity of such systems. The goal is to obtain methods on how to engineer technical solutions which have similar high stability and efficiency as biological entities often have. The BIONETICS conference aims at bringing together researchers and scientists from several disciplines in computer science and engineering where bio-inspired methods are investigated. We are soliciting high-quality original papers in the following areas including but not limited to these topics:

Bio-Inspired mathematical models, methods and tools
Bio-inspired algorithms and mechanism
Bio-inspired technical systems
Bio-inspired information and communication systems (ICT)


The conference invites original technical papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Contributions addressing all areas related to bio-inspired technologies are solicited.


Authors are invited to submit papers of up to 10 pages in a PDF file. 2 additional pages can be included as appendixes. Submissions must include: title, authors, affiliations, abstract (containing between 70 and 150 words), a list of at most five keywords. Submissions must be in the Springer LNCS format ( All paper, poster, panel, and workshop submissions will be handled electronically. Please visit the conference website for detailed submission requirements and procedures.


All submitted papers and posters will be rigorously reviewed by technical program committee members and the reviewers they invite. A selected number of best papers will be considered for publication in a leading journal.
