The 9th Workshop on Biological Distributed Algorithms (BDA 2023)

June 6, 2023. Orlando, Florida. In conjunction withPODC

We are excited to announce the 9th workshop on Biological Distributed 
Algorithms (BDA). The aim of the workshop is to foster and support 
collaborative research between biologists and distributed-computing 
theory researchers. Such research can lead to a better understanding of 
the behavior of the biological systems while at the same time developing 
novel algorithms that can be used to solve basic distributed-computing 
problems. We invite presentations related to any biological system, but 
we are particularly focused on relationships between distributed 
computing and distributed biological systems (including the analysis and 
case studies that combine the two).




We solicit submissions of extended abstracts describing recent results 
relevant to biological distributed computing. We especially welcome 
extended abstracts describing new insights and/or case studies regarding 
the relationship between distributed computing and biological systems 
even if these are not fully formed. Because a major goal of the workshop 
is to explore new directions and approaches, we especially encourage the 
submission of ongoing work. Selected contributors would be asked to 
present, discuss, and defend their work at the workshop.

Submissions should be in PDF and include title, author information, and 
a 4-page extended abstract. Shorter submissions are also welcome.

The workshop will not include published proceedings. Furthermore, we 
welcome submissions of extended abstracts describing work that has 
appeared or is expected to appear in other venues (or is still a 
preliminary work in progress).

Accepted papers will have the opportunity to be submitted for expedited 
review to theJournal of Computational Biology 
the workshop has concluded.

Extended abstracts should be submitted through Oxford Abstracts at the 
following link: 




07 April 2023 — Extended abstract submission deadline

04 May 2023 – Decision notifications

23 June 2023 – Workshop




Depending on the number of accepted submissions, financial support may 
be available to subsidise the cost of PODC workshop registration fees 
for presenters.
