UCNC 2017

Unconventional Computation & Natural Computation

UCNC 2017     Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation 2017

June 5-9, 2017, University of Arkansas

Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA

The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation (UCNC) is a meeting where scientists from many different backgrounds are united in their interest in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and computational aspects of natural processes. UCNC provides a forum for such scientists to meet and discuss their work.

The 16th UCNC will take place in Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA, a city nestled in the Ozark Mountains and home to the University of Arkansas.

Accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series, and the authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in a special issue of Natural Computing.
