Reminder: Selected papers will be published in LNCS Post-Proceedings, as well as in Springer's Swarm Intelligence journal. This selection will take place after the conference, along with a second reviewing process. The deadline for the Post-Proceedings submissions is May 30, 2014.
New Deadline Extension: The ICSIBO'2014 submission deadline has been extended to March 13, 2014. See the paper submission guidelines for sending your paper. Good luck to all participants!
Deadline Extension: The ICSIBO'2014 submission deadline has been extended to March 1st, 2014 23h59 CET.
Publication in journal: Selected papers will be published as a post-proceedings in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (indexed by EI, ISTP, DBLP, and ISI). The highest quality papers will be proposed for quick publication in Springer's Swarm Intelligence (indexed in Thomson Reuters' JCR).
The aim of this conference is to highlight the theoretical progress of swarm intelligence metaheuristics and their applications.
Swarm Intelligence is a computational intelligence technique involving the study of collective behavior in decentralized systems. Such systems are made up of a population of simple individuals interacting locally with one another and with their environment. Although there is generally no centralized control on the behavior of individuals, local interactions among individuals often cause a global pattern to emerge. Examples of such systems can be found in nature, including ant colonies, animal herding, bacteria foraging, bee swarms, and many more.

Proposals for Special Sessions are welcome. Last date: March 13, 2014. If you are interested in organizing a special session in the conference, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.Panel proposals
The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing
with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Submissions of original and unpublished
work related to swarm intelligence are invited, including, theory, development, and applications.
Areas of focus include particle swarm optimization, ant colony optimization, foraging techniques,
and other swarm intelligence related topics. Authors are invited to submit their original and
unpublished work without any limitation to the above related subjects.
