Call for Participants (2.0)

Instinctive Computing Workshop,
June 15-16, 2009,
Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Web Site: <http://www.cmu.edu/vis/workshops.html>

Instinctive computing is a computational simulation of biological and cognitive instincts. Instincts profoundly influence how we see, feel, appear, think, and act. If we want a computer to be genuinely intelligent and to interact naturally with us, we must give computers the ability to recognize, understand, and even to have primitive instincts. In this workshop, we will explore transformational developments in this area, including the building blocks for instinctive computing systems and potential applications such as security, privacy, human-computer interaction, next generation networks, and product design.

Related topics include but are not limited:

- Instinctive thinking
- Visual thinking
- Animal instincts
- Instinctive robots
- Instinctive design
- Self-healing systems
- Self-diagnostics
- Ambient Intelligence
- Emotional interfaces
- Artificial life
- Augmented reality
- Biologically inspired computing
- Next generation computers
- Swarm intelligence
- Instinctive languages
