International Workshop on *Nature-Inspired Sensory Systems and Computing (NISSC 2009)*

To be held in conjunction with ICDIM 2009
Technical co-sponsored by IEEE

Proceedings will be published and indexed by IEEE Xplore

November 1-4, 2009
Michigan, USA

Introduction and Scope:

Biological systems contain a set of effective sensory systems that are structurally functional and modular and possess inherent complexities yet well organized. If the features and characteristics are studied and applied in computing, it will result in significant advances in computing paradigms. There is little research on the application of sensory systems in computing paradigms. The underlying purpose of the workshop is to induce researchers to work and submit research on the experimental, architectural and theoretical focus on the application of sensory systems. Sensory system principles and concept needs to be captured and applied in the design of novel computing systems.

The proposed workshop will lead to introduce the state-of-the art research in sensory systems from different perspectives; and to design the sensory systems to optimize the existing and to develop innovative computing and communications paradigms.

Topics and areas:

The proposed workshop will reflect the following areas:

  • Biological intelligence in computing
  • Sensory system models
  • Multimodal signal integration
  • Neuro-inspired sensors
  • Swarm intelligence
    Impact of sensory systems on -
  • Wireless sensor networks
  • network modeling and Neuro-computing
  • Grid computing
  • Ant colony optimization
  • Pervasive computing
  • Cellular computing
  • Agent computing
  • Distributed computing, parallel computing


The authors need to send the research papers which address innovative models, architecture, themes and experimentation. All papers will be reviewed by at least two reviewers as a blind reviewing. All accepted papers in workshop will in ICDIM 2009 will be indexed in dblp. (

Besides the modified versions of the workshop papers will be published in the following peer reviewed journals.
1. Journal of Digital Information Management (JDIM)
2. Journal of Information Assurance and Security (JIAS)
3. International Journal of Computational Intelligence Research (IJCIR)
4. International Journal of Autonomic Computing, Inderscience Publishers

5. International Journal of Information Technology and Web Engineering (IJITWE)
6. International Journal of Web Applications IJWA)

Paper Length:

The paper length should be in the range of 6 pages in 2-cloumns IEEE format .
