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. 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 giving presentations should inform the organisers a few days before the meeting. The participants are strongly encouraged to circulate open problems and research proposals over the Internet (e.g., posting the problems in the Vienna P systems web page).

Dates: 31st January, 2011 (Monday) - 4th February, 2011 (Friday)

Organising institution:

  • Research Group on Natural Computing (RGNC) PAI-TIC-193
  • Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence
  • University of Sevilla, Spain


  • E.T.S. Ingeniería Informática, module H, first floor.
  • Avda. Reina Mercedes s/n.

Proceedings: As usual, about two months after the meeting a pre-proceedings volume will be published as a research report of the RGNC. A selection of final papers will be published in a special issue of a journal ,as it was the case with the first eight editions: Natural Computing, New Generation Computing (in JCR), Journal of Universal Computer Science (in JCR), Soft Computing (in JCR), International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science (in JCR), Theoretical Computer Science (in JCR), International Journal of Unconventional Computing (in JCR), Fundamenta Informaticae (in JCR), and International Journal of Computers, Communication & Control (in JCR).

Web page: News will be communicated through the web of the Research Group on Natural Computing, and through the Vienna P systems web page.

Conference Location: Sevilla is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. An explosion of colour and contrast: flamenco, bullfighting, and a lively atmosphere in the streets due to the open and friendly nature of its people. The river Guadalquivir, the Giralda, the Cathedral and the Golden Tower are all places full of magic where the visitor can feel the spirit of a city which is eternally romantic.
