BISON: Biology-Inspired Techniques for Self Organization in Dynamic Networks
Local leader of the project: BISON: Biology-Inspired Techniques for Self Organization in Dynamic Networks, a FET (Future and Emerging Technologies Program), IST project funded by the European Commission. The main scientific objective of BISON is to explore the use Ant Colony Optimization and Immune Networks for routing and optimization in Ad-Hoc networks and Grid computing systems. These ideas derived from complex adaptive systems (CAS) will enable the construction of robust and self-organizing information systems for deployment in highly dynamic network environments. BISON will cast solutions to important problems arising in Ad-Hoc and Virtual networks, P2P and Grid computing systems as desirable global properties that systems should exhibit The project is planned for three years with the following partners: University of Bologna (Italy), Telenor Comunication (Norway), Technische Universitaet Dresden (Germany), Santa Fe Institute (USA) and IDSIA.
