Call for Papers

The 13th International Conference on Bio−inspired Computing: Theories and Applications (BIC−TA 2018) will be held on November 2-4, 2018, Beijing, China, which is built upon the success of the previous ones held in Wuhan (2006), Zhengzhou (2007), Adelaide (2008), Beijing (2009), Liverpool and Changsha (2010), Penang (2011), Gwalior (2012), Anhui (2013), Wuhan (2014), Anhui (2015), Xi’an (2016), and Harbin (2017), respectively.

The conference invites researchers to contribute high quality original research papers in any aspect of bio−inspired computing. The main topics for the conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Artificial life and artificial immune systems;
  • Amorphous computing
  • Chaos computing
  • Cellular automata
  • Cellular (in-vivo) computing
  • DNA computing
  • Evolutionary computation
