http://grammars.grlmc.com/tpnc2012/

The 1st International Conference on the Theory and Practice of Natural Computing (TPNC 2012) 
invites authors to submit poster presentations. TPNC 2012 will be held in Tarragona (Spain) 
on 2-4 October, 2012. See

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

TOPICS

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.
