Scope of the Conference

Living things that survive natural selection have beautiful skills and intelligent behavior. A swarm can perform many functions that its component individuals cannot possibly accomplish alone. It is able not only to adapt to the environment, but also to construct a suitable environment for its own advantage. The constructive understanding of intelligence of living things is a very interesting approach from the point of view of biology and engineering. The aim of this first symposium SWARM2015 is the construction of a bridge between biologists and engineers who are interested in the intelligence of living things and the creation of a new academic field by integrating biology and engineering. This symposium will focus on the biological and engineering approaches for understanding swarm behavior and biologically-inspired robotics. All aspects of swarm behavior and bio-inspired robotics are welcome, including - but not limited to - the following topics:
