Call For Papers

TPNC is a conference series intending to cover the wide spectrum of computational principles, models and techniques inspired by information processing in nature. TPNC 2020 & 2021 will reserve significant room for young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on methodology. The conference aims at attracting contributions to nature-inspired models of computation, synthesizing nature by means of computation, nature-inspired materials, and information processing in nature.

Previous events took place in Tarragona, Cáceres, Granada, Mieres, Sendai, Prague, Dublin and Kingston.
