Workshop Description

The complex behavior of systems in nature is rooted in intricate mechanisms of interactions that not only have much in common with computers and communication networks, but actually supersede those in terms of reliability, power efficiency, and computational capacity. It is thus no surprise that natural systems have become the inspiration of novel algorithms that are based on non-standard computation and communication mechanisms. The goal of this workshop is present recent state-of-the-art results, and to outline future developments in nature-inspired computation and communication.
