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 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.
TPNC 2020 will take place in Taoyuan, in northwestern Taiwan, neighboring Taipei and home to many industrial parks and tech company headquarters. The venue will be:
TPNC 2020 will consist of:
Topics include, but are not limited to:
Theoretical contributions to:
Applications of natural computing to:
A flexible "theory to/from practice" approach would be the perfect focus for the expected contributions.

A volume of proceedings published by Springer in the LNCS series will be available by the time of the conference.
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
A special issue of Swarm and Evolutionary Computation (Elsevier, 2018 impact factor: 6.330) will be later published containing peer-reviewed substantially extended versions of some of the papers contributed to the conference. Submissions to it will be by invitation.
