***************************************************************************
7th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE THEORY AND PRACTICE OF NATURAL COMPUTING

 
TPNC 2018

 
Dublin, Ireland

 
December 12-14, 2018

 

Co-organized by:

 

Natural Computing Research &amp; Applications Group

School of Business

University College Dublin

***************************************************************************

 
AIMS:

 

TPNC is a conference series intending to cover the wide spectrum of computational principles, models and techniques inspired by information processing in nature. TPNC 2018 will reserve significant room for young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on methodology. The conference aims at attracting contributions to nature-inspired models of computation, synthesizing nature by means of computation, nature-inspired materials, and information processing in nature.

 
VENUE:

 

TPNC 2018 will take place in Dublin, a major historical and contemporary centre for education, arts, administration, economy and industry. The venue will be:

 

Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School

University College Dublin

Carysfort Avenue

Blackrock

Co. Dublin

http://www.smurfitschool.ie/

 
SCOPE:

 

Topics include, but are not limited to:

 

- Theoretical contributions to:

 

artificial chemistry

artificial immune systems

artificial life

cellular automata
