5 - 9 June 2017, UCNC 2017: Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation, Fayetteville AR, U.S.A.
The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation (UCNC) is a meeting where scientists from many different backgrounds are united in their interest in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and computational aspects of natural processes. UCNC provides a forum for such scientists to meet and discuss their work. The 16th UCNC will take place in Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA, a city nestled in the Ozark Mountains and home to the University of Arkansas.
The conference includes talks by invited speakers Erik Demaine, Masayuki Endo and Jose Felix Costa, tutorials by Jerome Durand-Lose and Makato Naruse, and workshops on 'Membranes/Systems Biology', 'Cortical Computation' and 'Physics and Computation'.
Authors are invited to submit original research papers (of, at most, 12 pages in LNCS format), or one-page poster abstracts. Papers must not be under simultaneous consideration by any other conference with published proceedings. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference.
