Submission of Papers

The World Congress on Nature and Biologically Inspired Computing (NABIC'09) brings together international researchers, developers, practitioners, and users. The aim is to build a 3 day platform where the concerned researchers /academicians /engineers from diverge regions of the world would converge to share their excitement and paradoxically, frustration towards the pursuit of building up of machines that would not be strictly algorithmic in nature and are capable of handling ambiguity, uncertainty etc. by applying common sense.

The theme for this symposium is "Nurturing Intelligent Computing Towards Advancement of Machine Intelligence".


The aim of NaBIC is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange research ideas in this field. NABIC'09 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that demonstrates current research in all areas of Nature and Biologically Inspired Computing, as well as proposals for workshops, industrial presentations, demonstrations, and tutorials.

The papers should be organized so as to accommodate abstract, introduction, state-of-the-art, objective, used methodology, obtained results and references.
Please see a sample paper:

Submitted papers should be original and contain contributions of theoretical, experimental or application nature, or be unique experience reports.

Papers must be submitted within the stipulated time (June 26, 2009) and electronic submission in PDF is required. The page limit for a full-length paper is 6 pages.
Short papers describing novel research visions, work-in-progress or less mature results are also welcome, with the limit of 4 pages.

Note: Papers less than 4 pages will not be reviewed and may be rejected outright!

All submissions should be in the IEEE 8.5 two-column format. Papers should contain up to 5 keywords. Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness, and will be reviewed by at least three independent reviewers.

All the accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE and fully indexed by IEEE Xplore. Selected papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in special issues of several international Journals.

    International Journal of Hybrid Intelligent Systems, IOS Press, The Netherlands

    The International Journal of Hybrid Intelligent Systems (IJHIS) is a peer refereed journal on the theory and applications of hybrid and integrated intelligent systems. The key objective of IJHIS is to provide the academic community with a medium for presenting original research and applications related to the simultaneous use of two or more intelligent techniques. Rather than publishing papers in one particular area of expertise, the journal aims to be the main forum for publishing papers that involve the use of two or more intelligent techniques and approaches, such as neural networks, traditional knowledge-based methods, fuzzy techniques, genetic algorithms, agent-based techniques, case based reasoning, etc. The combination or integration of more distinct methodologies can be done in any form, either by a modular integration of two or more intelligent methodologies, which maintains the identity of each methodology, or by fusing one methodology into another, or by transforming the knowledge representation in one methodology into another form of representation, characteristic to another methodology.

    International Journal of Bio-Inspired Computation (IJBIC), Inderscience Publishers, UK

    The major goal of IJBIC is the publication of new research results on bio-inspired computation methods and their applications. IJBIC provides the scientific community and industry with a vehicle whereby ideas using two or more conventional and computational intelligence based techniques can be discussed. Bio-inspired computation is an umbrella term for different computational approaches that are based on principles or models of biological systems. This class of methods, such as evolutionary algorithms, ant colony optimisation, and swarm intelligence, complements traditional techniques in the sense that the former can be applied to large-scale applications where little is known about the underlying problem and where the latter approaches encounter difficulties. Therefore, bio-inspired methods are becoming increasingly important in the face of the complexity of today's demanding applications, and accordingly they have been successfully used in various fields ranging from computer engineering and mechanical engineering to chemical engineering and molecular biology. IJBIC is especially intended for furthering the overall understanding of new algorithms simulated with various bio-phenomena beyond the current focus, i.e. genetic algorithms, Tabu search, etc. Its objective is improvement in theory and applications of the bio-computation field. Algorithms should therefore be carefully designed and appropriately analysed, and authors are encouraged to assess the statistical validity of their results whenever possible.

    International Journal of Grid and Utility Computing (IJGUC), Inderscience Publishers, UK

    The IJGUC is a high-quality double-blind refereed journal on Grid and Utility Computing that serves as a forum for individuals in the field to publish their research as well as for interested readers. IJGUC will facilitate communication and networking between members of the Grid and Utility Computing community in a period where considerable changes are taking place in the field, and will stimulate production of high-quality Grid Computing solutions and architectures.
