      ---------------------------------------------------------------------
      IPCAT 2012: Ninth International Conference on Information
      Processing in Cells and Tissues
      31st March - 2nd April 2012
      Trinity College, Cambridge, United Kingdom
      http://www.ipcat2012.org/
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------

      Submission deadline: 18th November 2011

      The IPCAT series of workshops began in 1995 as a venue to bring
      together a multidiscipinary group of scientists interested in
      modelling the processes that take place within biological cells and
      tissues; whether this interest is for the purpose of understanding
      biology or for developing new algorithms or engineered systems based
      upon biological principles.

      This year's conference will take place in Cambridge, the centre of the
      UK's software and biotechnology industries, and will feature invited
      presentations by six leading scientists working on biological
      problems. To complement this, we are soliciting extended abstracts and
      full-length papers from researchers in computer science, biology,
      chemistry, engineering, mathematics and other disciplines.

      All authors of accepted full-length papers will have the option of
      publishing their paper in a companion volume of Springer's Lecture
      Notes in Computer Science series. In addition, authors of selected
      papers and abstracts will be invited to submit an extended version of
      their submission for a special issue of the journal BioSystems
      (Elsevier Science).

      Topics include, but are not limited to:

      o Natural computation and artificial life
      o Synthetic, executable and computational biology
      o Computational intelligence and machine learning
      o Neural modelling, neural implants and neural computation
      o Evolving, adapting, and neural hardware
      o Artificial tissues and organs
      o Autonomous, evolutionary, and biochemical robotics
      o Molecular evolution and theoretical biology
      o Artificial bio-sensor and vision implementations
      o Quantum computation in cells and tissues
      o Modeling of metabolic pathways and responses
      o Developmental and morphogenetic systems
      o Simulation of genetic and ecological systems
      o Biological applications of nanotechnology
      o DNA, chemical and bacterial computing
      o Systems biology and bioinformatics
      o Genome biology and mathematical biology
