The 1st International Conference on the Theory and Practice of Natural
Computing (TPNC 2012) invites authors to submit poster presentations. TPNC
2012 will be held in Tarragona (Spain) on 2-4 October, 2012. See


Poster presentations are intended to enhance informal interactions with the
conference participants, at the same time permitting in-depth discussion.




We encourage authors to submit presentations that discuss novel work in
progress on:


-          nature-inspired models of computation,

-          synthesis of nature by means of computation,

-          nature-inspired materials,

-          information processing in nature,

-          applications of natural computing.


Posters do not need to present final research results. Work that is being
developed and may lead to new interesting ideas is welcome.




Submission deadline: August 26, 2012

Notification of poster acceptance or rejection: September 2, 2012




Please submit an abstract through:


The abstract should contain the title, author(s) and detailed affiliation,
and should not exceed 500 words.




Posters will be allocated 10 minutes each in the programme for oral
presentation. Moreover, they will remain hanging during the whole conference
for discussion.




Posters will not be published in the LNCS proceedings volume of TPNC 2012.
However, there will be a specific section in the LNCS proceedings volume of
TPNC 2013 reserved for those accepted papers that derive from 2012 posters.




Authors of accepted posters have to register to the conference. Their
registration fare, however, will be very reduced: 135 Euro (one third of the
early fare for PhD students).
