CALL FOR PAPERS: Membrane Computing and Biologically Inspired Process Calculi, 8 Sep 2012, Newcastle (U.K.)

MeCBIC 2012


    Title and Abstract:  11 June,  2012
    Paper Submission:    16 June,  2012
    Notification:        23 July,  2012
    Revised version:     7 August, 2012

The 6th Workshop on Membrane Computing and Biologically Inspired Process Calculi will be held this 
year on 8th September in Newcastle as one of the affiliated workshops of CONCUR 2012.

Traditionally MeCBIC papers deal with multilevel multiset rewriting as they appear in membrane 
computing (a rule-based formalism), in Petri nets, and in several process calculi (mobile ambients,
brane calculi). A cross fertilization of various research areas has recently started; a deeper 
investigation of the relations between these related formalisms is interesting, as it is important 
to understand the similarities and the differences.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
   Biologically inspired models and calculi;
   Biologically inspired systems and their applications;
   Analysis of properties of biologically inspired models and languages;
   Theoretical links and comparison between different models/systems.


Papers must report previously unpublished work, and not be submitted concurrently to another 
conference or journal. Authors are invited to submit their papers (of about 16 pages) using the 
web page We also encourage short papers 
(around 8 pages) presenting new tools or platforms related to the topics of MeCBIC 2012.

The workshop proceedings will be published in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer 
Science. After the workshop, some selected papers will be published in Scientific Annals of 
Computer Science.
