Call For Papers

12th International Conference on
UNCONVENTIONAL COMPUTATION AND NATURAL COMPUTATION

UCNC 2013

previously Unconventional Computation

1-5 July 2013
Milano, Italy

http://ucnc2013.disco.unimib.it
ucnc2013@disco.unimib.it


Important dates

* Submission deadline: 17 February 2013 (extended)
* Notification to authors: 25 March 2013
* Final version: 1 May 2013
* Conference: 1-5 July 2013

UCNC 2013 is organised by Dipartimento di Informatica,
Sistemistica e Comunicazione (Department of Computer Science,
Systems and Communication) of Università degli Studi di
Milano-Bicocca.


Topics

The topics of the conference include all areas of unconventional
computation and natural computation, including (but not limited
to) quantum, cellular, molecular, neural, DNA, membrane, and
evolutionary computing; cellular automata; computation based on
chaos and dynamical systems; massive parallel computation;
collective intelligence; computation based on physical principles
such as relativistic, optical, spatial, collision-based
computing; amorphous computing; physarum computing;
hypercomputation. Both theoretical and experimental papers are
welcome.


Submissions

Authors are invited to submit original papers (at most 12 pages
in LNCS format) using EasyChair.org, at

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ucnc2013

Papers must be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). The
revised version of the manuscripts, to appear in a LNCS volume by
Springer, must be prepared in LaTeX according to the LNCS format
(see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/ lncs+authors).

The papers must not have been submitted simultaneously to other
conferences with published proceedings. All accepted papers must
be presented at the conference.

The proceedings will be available at the conference venue.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended
and improved version of their contribution to a special issue of
an international journal.
