IBICA 2014 is the 5th International Conference on Innovations in Bio-Inspired Computing and Applications. The previous events, IBICA 2009, IBICA 2011, IBICA 2012, and IBICA2013 were hosted in India, China, and the Czech Republic with great success. The aim of IBICA 2014 is to provide a platform for world research leaders and practitioners, to discuss the “full spectrum” of current theoretical developments, emerging technologies, and innovative applications of Bio-inspired Computing. Bio-inspired Computing is currently one of the most exciting research areas, and it is continuously demonstrating exceptional strength in solving complex real life problems. The main driving force of the conference is to further explore the intriguing potential of Bio-inspired Computing. IBICA 2014 will be held in Ostrava, Czech Republic. Ostrava is the capital of the Moravian-Silesian Region and the third largest city in the Czech Republic as to the area and population. Ostrava has a convenient strategic position - it is situated 10 kilometres south of the Polish state border and 50 kilometres west of the Slovak border. Its distance from the country’s capital Prague is 360 km, 170 km from Brno, 90 km from Katowice in Poland and just 310 km from Vienna, Austria.

The conference is intended as an international forum for the researchers and professionals in all areas of genetic and evolutionary computing. Proceedings of IBICA 2014 will be published in Springer series Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing. It is indexed by to IET INSPEC, EI (Compendex), Thomson ISTP, DBLP.

The IBICA 2014 organizing committee is inviting the submission of papers that present high quality, original, and not previously published work in the related areas. All submissions will be thoroughly peer-reviewed by multiple reviewers to ensure quality and unbiased comments.

Paper acceptance and publication will be judged on the basis of their relevance to the conference themes, clarity of presentation, originality and accuracy of results and proposed solutions. Topics include, but are not limited to:

Bio-inspired Computing

Emerging Technologies & Applications: Intelligent Distributed and High-Perfomance Architecture
