PPSN XII will showcase a wide range of topics in Natural Computing including, but not restricted to: Evolutionary Computation, Quantum Computation, Molecular Computation, Neural Computation, Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence, Artificial Ant Systems, Artificial Immune Systems, Self-Organizing Systems, Emergent Behaviors, and Applications to Real-World Problems.



Following the now well-established tradition of PPSN conferences, all accepted papers will be presented during small poster sessions of about 16 papers. Each session will contain papers from a wide variety of topics, and will begin by a plenary quick overview of all papers in that session by a major researcher in the field. Past experiences have shown that such presentation format led to more interactions between participants and to a deeper understanding of the papers. All accepted papers will be published in the LNCS Proceedings.


Researchers are invited to submit original work in the field of natural computing as papers of not more than 10 pages. Authors are encouraged to submit their papers in LaTeX. Papers must be submitted in Springer Verlag's LNCS style through the conference homepage, here
