The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation (UCNC) series is a forum bringing together scientists from many different backgrounds who are united in their interest in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and computational aspects of natural processes. The 20th International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation (UCNC 2023) will be held at the University of North Florida, Jacksonville, FL, USA on March 13-17, 2023 and will continue the tradition of focusing on current important theoretical and experimental results and their critical evaluation.

Author Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit original research papers (of, at most, 15 pages in LNCS format), or one-page poster abstracts, through the conference EasyChair link:
Papers must be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF); revised versions of manuscripts must be prepared in LaTeX, using the Springer LNCS style, which can be found at one of the following:

Accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series, and authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in a special issue of Natural Computing.

All accepted papers and posters must be presented at the conference and at least one author must be registered.

Papers and poster presentations are sought in all areas that relate to unconventional computation and natural computation. Both theoretical and experimental papers are welcome.

Note that these guidelines apply only to the main conference track. Satellite workshops have their own submission procedures and publication arrangements.
