Biologically inspired approaches have already proved successful in achieving major breakthroughs in a wide variety of problems in information technology (IT). A more recent trend is to explore the applicability of bio-inspired approaches to the development of self-organizing, evolving, adaptive and autonomous information technologies, which will meet the requirements of next-generation information systems, such as diversity, scalability, robustness, and resilience. These new technologies will become a base on which to build a networked symbiotic environment for pleasant, symbiotic society of human beings in the 21st century.

Bio-ADIT 2004 will be the first international workshop to present original research results in the field of bio-inspired approaches to advanced information technologies. It will also serve to foster the connection between biological paradigms and solutions to building the next-generation information systems.
