Special Session


From Biological Intelligence to Machine Intelligence:

Algorithm Abstraction, Evaluation, and Validation


13-15 Dec. 2009, Miami, Florida, USA




“From biological intelligence to machine intelligence” is a process in designing a system that is capable of intelligent behavior. This methodology is very effective in transferring certain observed behaviors into control and planning strategies for a robotic system. The key points in developing a biologically-inspired system are to abstract algorithms from the behaviors, analyze and evaluate the designed strategies, and validate the system in complex environments.




This session would solicit original research papers including but not limited to the following:


­    Biologically-Inspired Algorithms Robot Systems

­    Behaviour Modelling and Control Using Fuzzy Logic, Neural Networks, and Genetic Algorithm 

­    Learning Algorithms for DNA Classification

­    Multisensor Fusion and Integration Architecture for Chemical Plume Tracing Systems



Paper Submission Deadline:                                     August 1, 2009
Notification of acceptance:                                     September 7, 2009
Camera-ready papers & Pre-registration:                   October 1, 2009
The ICMLA Conference:                                          December 13-15, 2009


The special session will be held as a part of the ICMLA’09 conference. The authors would submit papers through the main conference submission website. Papers must correspond to the requirements detailed in the instructions to authors. Accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors to be published in the conference proceeding. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to direct your questions to Dr. Wei Li <wli@cs.csubak.edu>.

All paper submissions will be handled electronically. Detailed instructions for submitting the papers are provided on the conference home page at
