  About the Special Track
 

Biology, Cybernetics and Information Theory have been conceptually related for a long time. As it is known, basic cybernetic concepts are historically rooted in Biology. The epoch-making Wieners book Cybernetics, or Control and Communication in the Animal and in the Machine (1949) is a good example of these historical roots. Arturo Rosenblueth, physician and physiologist, co-authored with Norbert Wiener the seminal paper "Behavior, Purpose and Teleology", which, according to Wiener himself, set the bases for the new science of Cybernetics. On the other hand, the biologist Karl Ludwig von Bertalanffy is one of the founders if not The Founder - of General Systems Theory.

These conceptual and theoretical relationships are synergically being complemented by the instrumental support of Information and Communication Technologies. Instrumental relationships among Biology, Medicine, Informatics and Cybernetics have been growing with the expanding development of Information and Communication Technologies. Conceptual cross fertilization, analogical thinking and reciprocal applications.

Consequently, the purpose of the Special Track on Bio- and Medical Informatics and Cybernetics: BMIC 2017 is to bring together scholars, researchers, professionals and practitioners from the fields of biology, medicine, cybernetics and informatics who have been working or are interested in the relationships and cross applications of concepts and technologies among these areas. Submissions of papers/abstracts related to applications of Informatics and Cybernetics in Biology and Medicine are encouraged, as well as applications in the opposite direction, i.e. applications of concepts, theory and experimental results in biology and medicine in the areas of informatics and cybernetics, as it is the case, for example, of Bio-inspired computing.
