About Sirocco 2015
SIROCCO is devoted to the study of the interplay between communication and knowledge in multi-processor systems from both the qualitative and quantitative viewpoints. Special emphasis is given to innovative approaches and fundamental understanding, in addition to efforts to optimize current designs. SIROCCO has a tradition of interesting and productive scientific meetings in a relaxed and pleasant atmosphere, attracting leading researchers in a variety of fields in which communication and knowledge play a significant role. This time, SIROCCO is held at Montserrat, Spain.
Original papers are solicited from all areas of study of local structural knowledge and global communication and computational complexities. Among the typical areas are distributed computing, communication networks, game theory, parallel computing, social networks, mobile computing (including autonomous robots), peer to peer systems, and communication complexity. Keeping with the tradition of SIROCCO, new areas are always welcome.
This time, we will have a special track on bio-inspired systems including emergent systems like multi-cell structures or swarms, agent-based systems, nano-scale systems and networks, DNA and molecular computing, programmable matter, and modular robotics.
Sirocco 2015 will be published in the Springer LNCS series.
SIROCCO 2015 is sponsored in part by generous contributions from the Collaborative Research Centre "On-The-Fly Computing" (SFB 901) funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), the Spanish Royal Society of Mathematics, and the Catalan Society of Mathematics.
