NICSO 2007 - International Workshop on Nature Inspired Cooperative  
Strategies for Optimization

Acireale, Italy, November 8-10 2007

Biological and natural processes have always been a source of  
inspiration for computer science and information technology in many  
real-world applications. Its well known that biological entities, from  
single cell organisms - like bacteria - to humans, often engage on a  
rich repertoire of social interaction that could range from altruistic  
cooperation through open conflict. One specific kind of social  
interaction is cooperative problem solving (CPS), where a group of  
autonomous entities work together to achieve certain goal.

NICSO 2007 is the second edition of the Workshop and it aims are to  
give a deeper investigation and a vigorous exchange of ideas about  
emerging research areas in problem solving strategies.

All submitted papers will be blind reviewed and acceptance will be  
based on originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity.

Selected contributions will be published in the book series on  
*Studies in Computational Intelligence*, SPRINGER-VERLAG. The length  
of each contribution will not exceed 12 pages. Best accepted papers  
will be published in an International Journal.
