12-14 May 2010, NICSO 2010 (The IV International Workshop on Nature Inspired Cooperative Strategies for Optimization), Granada, Spain

Date: 12-14 May 2010
Location: Granada, Spain
Deadline: 15 October 2009

Biological and natural processes have always been a source of inspiration for computer science and information technology. It is well known that biological entities, from single cell organisms -like bacteria- to humans, often engage in a rich repertoire of social interaction that could range from altruistic cooperation through open conflict. One specific kind of social interaction is cooperative problem solving (CPS), where a group of autonomous entities work together in order to achieve certain goal. The NICSO 2010 aims at promoting cooperative problem solving strategies bringing together international researchers and practitioners from different disciplines in order to discuss the investigations and exchange ideas on the current state of the art of the topic.

The conference seeks contributions that are inspired by Nature and that encompass a range of spatio-temporal scales, for visionary conceptions of information processing and computation as pertaining to cooperation mechanisms in the context of problem solving. Full paper submission deadline: October 15, 2009. For more information, please visit http://www.nicso2010.org/.
