The 12th International Conference on Bio-inspired
Computing: Theories and Applications (BIC-TA 2017)
1st -3rd, December, 2017, Harbin, China
Bio-inspired computing is a field of study that abstracts computing ideas (data structures, operations with data, ways to control operations, computing models, etc.) from the living phenomena or biological systems such as evolution, cell, tissue, neural network, immune system and ant colony. The areas of bio-inspired computing include Neural Networks, Brain-inspired Computation, Evolutionary Computation, Swarm Intelligence, Fuzzy Logic and Systems, DNA and Molecular Computing, Membrane Computing, etc.
The 12th International Conference on Bio-inspired Computing: Theories and Applications (BIC-TA 2017) will be held on 1st-3rd, December, 2017, in Harbin, China. BIC-TA 2017 is the twelfth annual event in the high-reputation BIC-TA series. BIC-TA 2017 aims to provide a high-level international forum for researchers working in the field of bio-inspired computing to present their recent results and to exchange ideas. The conference invites researchers to contribute high-quality original research papers in any aspect of bio-inspired computing.
The host city Harbin is the capital and largest city of Heilongjiang Province in the northeastern region of China. Holding sub-provincial administrative status, Harbin is the eighth most populous Chinese city and the most populous city in Northeast China. Harbin serves as a key political, economic, scientific, cultural, and communications hub in Northeast China, as well as an important industrial base of the nation.Having the most bitterly cold winters among major Chinese cities, Harbin is heralded as the Ice City for its well-known winter tourism and recreations.
