Bio-ADIT 2004 SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS The First International Workshop on Biologically Inspired Approaches to Advanced Information Technology January 29 - 30, 2004 Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland Website: http://lslwww.epfl.ch/bio-adit2004/ Sponsored by - Osaka University Forum, - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, and - The 21st Century Center of Excellence Program of The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT), Japan, under the Program Title "Opening Up New Information Technologies for Building Networked Symbiosis Environment Biologically inspired approaches have already proved successful in achieving major breakthroughs in a wide variety of problems in information technology (IT). A more recent trend is to explore the applicability of bio-inspired approaches to the development of self-organizing, evolving, adaptive and autonomous information technologies, which will meet the requirements of next-generation information systems, such as diversity, scalability, robustness, and resilience. These new technologies will become a base on which to build a networked symbiotic environment for pleasant, symbiotic society of human beings in the 21st century. Bio-ADIT 2004 will be the first international workshop to present original research results in the field of bio-inspired approaches to advanced information technologies. It will also serve to foster the connection between biological paradigms and solutions to building the next-generation information systems.
