Special issue on: "Bio-inspired Hardware"

Prof. Sanyou Zeng, China University of Geosciences, China

Evolvable hardware has expanded beyond the use of evolutionary algorithms on programmable electronics to include many different combinations of bio-inspired algorithms with various physical devices (or simulations of physical devices). Current research in this field is mainly in two related areas: bio-inspired hardware design and adaptive hardware.

This issue encourages the submission of high quality papers, both theoretical and practical.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:

  • Adaptive hardware
  • Bio-inspired antennae
  • Evolutionary robotics
  • Online hardware evolution
  • Bio-inspired cryptography
  • Self-reconfigurable hardware
  • Bio-inspired computing on GPU
  • Formal models of bio-inspired hardware
  • Real-world applications of bio-inspired hardware
  • Bio-inspired circuit design and diagnostics
  • Self-repairing and fault-tolerant systems
  • Real-world applications of bio-inspired hardware
  • MEMS and nanotechnology in bio-inspired hardware
  • Novel devices/testbeds/tools for bio-inspired hardware
