PERADA WORKSHOP

Novel Applications of Bio-Inspired Computing to Pervasive Adaptation

Workshop Flyer

Pervasive Adaptation (PerAda) refers to massivescale pervasive information and communication systems which are capable of autonomously adaption. PerAda systems are thus a special case of collective adaptive systems which have particular constraints e.g. they are networked and highly distributed; they involve interaction with humans; they are large scale; the boundaries of systems are fluid; their context is dynamic; and they operate using uncertain information. In spite of these constraints, PerAda systems must be capable of adapting seamlessly to their users and to their environment and to their own fluctuating composition. In order to address such problems, engineers are looking more and more towards biological systems, where nature has found many solutions to creating robust and adaptable systems. The workshop seeks two page position statements on the following topics:

The workshop particularly encourages statements which relate to the use of immune inspired computing, though statements are not limited to this aspect of bio-inspired computing. All position statements will be refereed and accepted papers published in the ICARIS proceedings by Springer LNCS.

Position statements should not be used to present results obtained using current research techniques, of the kind that would be normally be submitted to a technical conference. Position papers will be selected based on originality, likelihood of spawning insightful discussion at the workshop, and technical merit

The workshop also seeks practical demonstrations which demonstrate the use of bioinspired techniques in a pervasive adaptive systems. If you would like to demonstrate your research at this workshop, please mail icaris2010@napier.ac.uk.
