Dear colleague,

We cordially invite you to attend the 2007
International Conference on Bio-Inspired
Computing: Theories and Applications (BIC-TA
2007), which will be held on September 14=A8C17,
2007 in Zhengzhou Henan Province, China.

The conference is organized by the Peking
University, the Zhengzhou University of Light
Industry as well as the Huazhong University of
Science & Technology, and technically
co-sponsored by the Zhongyuan University of
Technology, the North China University of Water
Conservancy and Electric Power, and financially
supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China.

Just like the name of the conference, the theme
for this conference is Bio-Inspired Computing:
Theories and Applications. Only original high
quality papers related to this theme are
especially solicited, including theories,
methodologies, and applications in science and
technology. Topics covering industrial
issues/applications and academic research into
bio-inspired computing will be welcome.

All submissions will be thoroughly peer-reviewed
by experts in the field based on originality,
significance and clarity, only papers presenting
novel research results or successful innovative
applications are seriously considered for publication.

A pre-proceedings volume will be available during
the conference. The expanded and revised version
of all accepted papers at BIC-TA 2007 will be
published after the conference in international
journals indexed by SCI-Expanded.
