      12th International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature
      - PPSN 2012

      AIMS & SCOPE

      Natural Computing is the study of computational systems which use
      ideas and get inspiration from natural systems, including biological,
      ecological, physical, chemical, and social systems. It is a fast-
      growing interdisciplinary field in which a range of techniques and
      methods are studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic
      problems with various sources of potential uncertainties.

      PPSN XII will be a showcase of a wide range of topics in Natural
      Computing including, but not restricted to: Evolutionary Computation,
      Neural Computation, Molecular Computation, Quantum Computation,
      Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence, Artificial Ant Systems,
      Artificial Immune Systems, Self-Organizing Systems, Emergent
      Behaviors, and Applications to Real-World Problems.
      PPSN XII will also feature workshops and tutorials covering advanced
      and fundamental topics in the field of natural computation.

      Submissions should present significant contributions. All accepted
      papers will be presented during poster sessions and will be included
      in the proceedings.
      Following the tradition of PPSN, we plan to publish the proceedings in
      the Series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer.

      The preceding symposia were held in Dortmund, Brussels, Jerusalem,
      Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Granada, Birmingham, Reykjavik, Dortmund,
      and Krakow.


      Accepted papers will appear in the PPSN 2012 proceedings published by
      Springer Verlag in the LNCS series.


      Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting
      original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics
      related to the symposium. Simultaneous submission to other conferences
      or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed.

      Submissions must not exceed 10 pages formatted according to LNCS style.
      All papers will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided to the authors.
