Call for Posters TPNC 2016

The 5th International Conference on the Theory and Practice of Natural Computing (TPNC 2016) invites researchers to submit poster presentations. TPNC 2016 will be held in Sendai (Japan) on December 12-13, 2016. See

Poster presentations are intended to enhance informal interactions with the conference participants, at the same time allowing for in-depth discussion.


Presentations displaying novel work in progress on computational principles, models and techniques inspired by information processing in nature are invited. Posters do not need to show final research results. Work that might lead to new interesting developments is welcome.



Please submit a .pdf abstract through:

It should contain the title, author(s) and affiliation, and should not exceed 500 words.


Posters will be allocated 10 minutes each in the programme for oral presentation. Moreover, they will remain hanging out during the whole conference for discussion.


Posters will not appear in the LNCS proceedings volume of TPNC 2016. However, they will be eligible for submission to the post-conference journal special issue in Soft Computing (Springer, 2014 JCR impact factor: 1.304).


At least one author of each accepted poster must register to the conference by November 28, 2016. The registration fare is reduced: 260 Euro. It gives the same rights all other conference participants have (attendance, copy of the proceedings volume, lunches...). Contributors of regular papers who in addition get a poster accepted must register for the latter independently.
