5th Workshop on Biological Distributed Algorithms
Friday, July 28th, 2017 in Washington DC, USA
Co-located with PODC 2017
BDA 2017 will include talks on distributed algorithms related to a variety of biological systems. We will devote special attention to communication and coordination in insect colonies (e.g. foraging, navigation, task allocation, construction) and networks in the brain (e.g. learning, decision-making, attention).
- Srinivas Turaga (Janelia Research Campus)
- Zeeshan Rasheed/Khurram Hassan-Shafique (Novateur Research Solutions)
- Talks/Q&A panel with program officers from various granting agencies, including Mitra Basu (NSF), Tracy Kimbrel (NSF), and Marc Steinberg (ONR), that will discuss funding opportunities for BDA-related research.

Early registration deadline ends June 26th.
By default, the submissions will be evaluated for either oral or poster presentation, though authors may indicate in their submission if it should be only considered for one of the presentation types. Submissions should be in PDF and include title, author information, and a 4-page extended abstract. Shorter submissions are also welcome, particularly for poster presentation.
