Call for Participation

Goal: Following previous editions, the goal of this meeting is to bring together researchers interested in Membrane Computing (theory and applications), in order to exchange ideas, problems, solutions, and to work together in a friendly environment. This year, we propose to devote special attention to the interplay between Membrane Computing and High Performance Computing.

Only invited talks and short and provocative presentations will be scheduled during the first days. The rest of the meeting will be mainly devoted to joint work. Those interested in having such presentations should inform the organizers (ariscosn 'at' us.es) some days before the meeting.

The participants are strongly encouraged to circulate open problems and research ideas before the event. Please send to ariscosn 'at' us.es your proposals, and we will post them on the open problems section.

Dates: 2nd February, 2015 (Monday) - 6th February, 2015 (Friday)
