This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed extended postproceedings of the 8th International Workshop on Membrane Computing, WMC 2007, held in Thessaloniki, Greece, in June 2007 under the auspices of the European Molecular Computing Consortium (EMCC). The 22 revised full papers presented together with 5 invited papers went through two rounds of reviewing and improvement. The papers in this volume cover all the main directions of research in membrane computing, ranging from theoretical topics in mathematics and computer science to application issues. A special attention was paid to the interaction of membrane computing with biology and computer science, focusing both on the biological roots of membrane computing, on applications of membrane computing in biology and medicine, and on possible electronically based implementations.
