2nd CALL FOR POSTERS:1st International Conference on the Theory and Practice of Natural Computing, 2-4 Oct, 2012, Tarragona, SPAIN

TPNC 2012

Poster presentations are intended to enhance informal interactions with the conference participants,
at the same time permitting in-depth discussion.

We encourage authors to submit presentations that discuss novel work in progress on:


-          nature-inspired models of computation,

-          synthesis of nature by means of computation,

-          nature-inspired materials,

-          information processing in nature,

-          applications of natural computing.

Posters do not need to present final research results. Work that is being developed and may lead 
to new interesting ideas is welcome.


Submission deadline: August 26, 2012

Notification of poster acceptance or rejection: September 2, 2012


Please submit an abstract through:

The abstract should contain the title, author(s) and detailed affiliation, and should not exceed 
500 words.


Posters will be allocated 10 minutes each in the programme for oral presentation. Moreover, they 
will remain hanging during the whole conference for discussion.


Posters will not be published in the LNCS proceedings volume of TPNC 2012. However, there will be 
a specific section in the LNCS proceedings volume of TPNC 2013 reserved for those accepted papers 
that derive from 2012 posters.


Authors of accepted posters have to register to the conference. Their registration fare, however, 
will be very reduced: 135 Euro (one third of the early fare for PhD students).
