The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation has been a meeting where scientists with different backgrounds, yet sharing a common interest in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and the computational aspects of processes taking place in nature, present their latest results. Papers and poster presentations are sought in all areas, theoretical or experimental, that relate to unconventional computation and natural computation. Typical, but not exclusive, topics are:
Authors are invited to submit original papers (at most 12 pages in LNCS format) or one-page poster abstracts using the link
Proofs and details omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix to be read by the PC members/reviewers at their discretion.
Papers must be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). The revised version of the
manuscripts, to appear in a LNCS volume by Springer available at the conference venue,
must be prepared in LATEX, see
The papers must not have been submitted simultaneously to other conferences with published proceedings. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference. Selected papers will appear in a special issue of Natural Computing.
