PPSN 2016 – First Call for Papers
14th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature
17-21 September 2016
Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
The 14th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature
(PPSN 2016) will be held in Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, 17-21 September 2016.
This biennial meeting brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of Natural Computing: the study of computational systems inspired by nature, including biological, ecological, physical, chemical, and social systems. This is a fast-growing interdisciplinary field, featuring a range of techniques and methods for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic problems with various sources of potential uncertainties.
PPSN 2016 will showcase a wide range of topics in Natural Computing including, but not restricted to: Evolutionary Computation, Artificial Neural Networks, Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence, Artificial Immune Systems, Self-Organising Systems, Emergent Behaviours, Molecular Computing, Evolutionary Robotics, Evolvable Hardware and Applications to Real-World Problems. PPSN 2016 will also feature workshops and tutorials covering advanced and fundamental topics in the field of Natural Computing.
Following the well-established PPSN tradition, all accepted papers will be presented during poster sessions of about 16 papers. Each session will contain papers from a variety of topics, and will begin with a brief plenary overview by a distinguished researcher in the field. All accepted papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer.
Researchers are invited to submit their original work in the field of Natural Computing. The page limit is 10 pages, and papers must be submitted in Springer LNCS style through the conference homepage.
