CALL FOR PAPERS

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


AIMS & SCOPE

Natural Computing is the study of computational systems which use
ideas and get inspiration from natural systems, including biological,
ecological, physical, chemical, and social systems. It is a fast-
growing interdisciplinary field in which a range of techniques and
methods are studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic
problems with various sources of potential uncertainties.

PPSN XII will be a showcase of a wide range of topics in Natural
Computing including, but not restricted to: Evolutionary Computation,
Neural Computation, Molecular Computation, Quantum Computation,
Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence, Artificial Ant Systems,
Artificial Immune Systems, Self-Organizing Systems, Emergent
Behaviors, and Applications to Real-World Problems.
PPSN XII will also feature workshops and tutorials covering advanced
and fundamental topics in the field of natural computation.

Submissions should present significant contributions. All accepted
papers will be presented during poster sessions and will be included
in the proceedings.
Following the tradition of PPSN, we plan to publish the proceedings in
the Series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer.

The preceding symposia were held in Dortmund, Brussels,  Jerusalem,
Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Granada, Birmingham, Reykjavik, Dortmund,
and  Krakow.



PROCEEDINGS

Accepted papers will appear in the PPSN 2012 proceedings published by
Springer Verlag in the LNCS series.



SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting
original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics
related to the symposium. Simultaneous submission to other conferences
or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed.

Submissions must not exceed 10 pages formatted according to LNCS style.
All papers will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided to the authors.

The submission system can be accessed via
