Workshop on Natural Computing
Please download the workshop poster here
The workshop is organized as a part of the Conference ITAT (Information technologies -- Applications and Theory), which takes place in the Wellness Hotel Tyrapol, Oravská Lesná, with a beautiful natural surrounding. We encourage especially young researchers and PhD students to present their work and exchange ideas in an inspiring and informal environment. The workshop is held on September 20–22, the whole ITAT on September 18–22. In case of ongoing travel restrictions, researchers from abroad can participate online. Submissions are welcome in the area of natural computing, i.e., computational processes observed in nature, and human-designed computing inspired by nature. Topics include (but are not restricted to):
- Molecular computing (e.g., DNA computing)
- Cell-inspired computing (membrane computing, amorphous computing)
- Cellular automata, swarm intelligence, nature-inspired algorithms
- Artificial immune systems, artificial life
- Synthetic biology, biological networks (genetic networks, protein-protein networks, transport networks)
- Deep learning systems and applications
Submissions should have 5-8 pages of two-columns A4 format, written in English, using LaTeX, according to the LaTeX class “itatnew” and it must be submitted using the EasyChair system. Each submitted paper will be reviewed by 3 PC members. The accepted papers will be published in ITAT proceedings available through the CEUR Workshop Proceedings publication service (CEUR-WS.org), indexed in DBLP and Scopus.
