Our Conference provides a chance for academic and industry professionals to discuss recent progress in the area of Bio-Science and Bio-Technology.
Topics of Conference
The main topics include but will not be limited to: (Excellent surveying works in these areas are welcome, too.)
- Hardware meeting Biology
- Mathematics meeting Anatomy
- Computing Evolution and Origin of Disease
- Computing the Living System
- Modelling the Cell
- Biologically Inspired Computation
- Computing Learning or Behaviour
- Study of Intelligence
- Architecture of Brain and Mind
- Definition of Intelligence: requirement to manipulate the environment; creativity; common sense.
- Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Systems
- Molecular Biology Drug Discovery and Evolution
- Linguistics and Genetics: parallels between languages and chemistry and what discoveries can these reveal.
- The C value enigma: new algorithms or tactics that may discover putative function of DNA and of our cellular molecular machinery.
- Can cybernetic principles and Shannon laws help Molecular Biology?
- Complexity threshold in Genomics: measures to discover what is the complexity beyond which it becomes reasonable to apply Occam's Razor.
- Macro and Micro Evolution: what impact has "species as the individual".
- Modelling approaches: empirical science; reductionism and objections to reductionism; complex systems theory and emergence; taxonomic analysis; role of analogy in discoveries; chance discovery.
- Cladistics : can we define mathematical existence and uniqueness; can we set any bounds on past and future evolution.
- Revealing experimental techniques.
- Challenges in Biometrics:
- Beyond biostatistics. Can we reverse engineer and refine recognition algorithms from vast amounts of data using AI and "white-box" analysis?
- Presentational issues and social guarantees.
- Interaction; Communication and Databases:
- Context Databases: capturing context; feelings; hidden or intended meaning in databases.
- Socio-technical: design and usability challenges in the interaction between humans and their personal computational systems.
- Bio Interaction: Interaction Technology between Bio Systems and Machines.
- Medical records and knowledge accumulation: where to place and how to ensure their integrity.
- Research on Learning, and Predicting Social Behaviour or Culture
- How do we learn most effectively? Which situations are learned best by means of simple mental exercises; or by playing pac -man; and which require immersion in realistic virtual reality games?
- "Composability" problem: in a quickly put together coalition each partner needs to guess the likely culture and behaviour of the other partner, what is the best strategy for doing this?
- Psychology of human and machine
- Instincts, goal setting, emotions and machine intelligence.
- Plausible new devices to improve human life: e.g. fusion of wearable sensors and natural language processing for personal use in pattern matching during daily activities.
- Forgotten technologies: resurrecting useful techniques lost in time.
