CFP: Special session:
Nature-inspired Intelligent Methods and Applications (NIIMA'2007)

Under the frame of:
IWANN 2007
9th International Work-Conference on Artificial Neural Networks (IWANN'2007)
(Computational and Ambient Intelligence)
Palacio de Miramar, San Sebastián, Spain; June 20-22, 2007

Characteristic for man-designed computing inspired by nature is the metaphorical use of concepts, principles and mechanisms underlying natural systems. This type of computing includes among others, fields as evolutionary algorithms, neural networks, molecular computing and quantum computing. The special session is soliciting papers on all aspects of Nature-inspired Intelligent Methods and Applications. Because of the interdisciplinary character of the conference a special effort will be made to solicit survey, review, and tutorial papers which would make research trends in a given subarea more accessible to the broad audience of the conference.   
Applications are solicited, but not limited to fields as security, knowledge management, bio-informatics, geographic information systems, artificial societies, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, prediction, control, robotics, image and speech signal processing, food industry, biology and medicine, business and management, materials and environment engineering and so on.

Authors must prepare original manuscripts which should not exceed 8 pages in the Springer-Verlag format. Author guidelines may be otained at:


Submission will be accomplished through the Section CALL FOR PAPERS/SUBMISSIONS, in PDF format.
