Call For Papers



UCNC 2018, June 25-29, 2018, University of Paris Est Créteil

Fontainebleau, Paris region, France

Submission deadline January 29, 2018,
Notification of acceptance March 20, 2018,
Final version for proceedings April 9, 2018.



The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation (UCNC) is a meeting where scientists from many different backgrounds are united in their interest in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and computational aspects of natural processes. UCNC provides a forum for such scientists to meet and discuss their work. The 17th UCNC will take place at IUT de Fontainebleau, located in the city of Fontainebleau, former residence of French kings situated near Paris.

Authors are invited to submit original research papers (of, at most, 14 pages in LNCS format), or one-page poster abstracts, to the conference EasyChair Site. Papers must be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF); revised versions of manuscripts must be prepared in LaTeX, using the Springer LNCS style. Note, one-page abstracts will only be considered for posters.

Papers must not be under simultaneous consideration by any other conference with published proceedings. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference.

During previous editions accepted papers were published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series, and authors of selected papers were invited to submit extended versions for publication in a special issue of a journal. We expect the same thing for 2018 edition.
Please note that these guidelines apply only to the main conference track; satellite workshops have their own submission procedures and publication arrangements.
