Workshop on Membrane Computing (WMC) at the Conference on Unconventional Computation & Natural Computation



The Workshop on Membrane Computing (WMC) is associated with the 14th International
Conference on Unconventional Computation & Natural Computation (UCNC)

University of Auckland, New Zealand
31 August — 4 September, 2015


The aim of the Workshop is to bring together researchers working in membrane
computing and related fields of unconventional and natural computation, in a
friendly atmosphere enhancing communication and cooperation. Membrane computing
(P systems theory) is an area of computer science aiming to abstract computing
ideas and models from the structure and the functioning of living cells, as
well as from the way the cells are organized in tissues or higher order
structures. The Workshop will focus on the current important experimental and
theoretical results in membrane computing, and their impact on related fields.

Proceedings of the Workshop are here.


Auckland, the City of Sails, is the gateway to New Zealand, one of the world’s
top outdoor paradises. It is located on both Tasman Sea and Pacific and boasts
countless beaches, islands, a vibrant cosmopolitan culture, and excellent
cuisine and wines. It is connected to many major cities in Asia, Australia,
South America and the USA by direct airline flights.  A great springboard for
excursions to the Bay of Islands or the world-famous glow worm caves of
Waitomo, hot springs and geysers of Rotorua, the World Heritage Area of the
volcanoes in Tongariro National Park, and the beautiful and historic Coromandel
