Paper Submission is CLOSED

Due to many requests, we shall keep the submission site open till 24:00 GMT on 2 April 2012. The submission site will be closed after this time and we are sorry we shall not be able to entertain any further requests, as the review process has to start soon thereafter.

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. Papers must be submitted as PDF files. The authors' names shall not be blinded for the reviewing process.

Papers must be submitted in Springer Verlag's LNCS style through the conference homepage:
