ACMC 2015 is one of the flagship conferences on Membrane Computing aiming to provide a high-level international forum for researchers working in membrane computing and related areas, especially for the ones from the Asian region. This conference is the Fourth edition of ACMC with the three editions having successfully taken place in Wuhan, China, 2012, Chengdu, China, 2013 and Coimbatore, South India 2014 and also a geographical expansion of CMC (Conference on Membrane Computing) which is held every year from 2000 in different European Countries.

Membrane computing (P systems theory) is a branch of natural computing aiming to abstract computing ideas and models from the structure and the functioning of living cells, as well as from the way the cells are organized in tissues or higher order structures. This research area was initiated by Gheorghe Păun in 1998 and now has grown into a vigorous scientific discipline in computer science.

ACMC 2015 is planned as a friendly interactive conference with several keynote lectures, paper presentations and some specialized sessions, which will cover a wide range of topics on membrane computing, including theory, applications, implementation and various aspects related to membrane computing. The Registration fee and the accommodation fee will be posted soon on the conference page.

Best Paper Awards

All submitted papers are eligible for the Best Conference Paper Award. After the reviewing process is completed, those papers that are nominated will be reviewed by the Awards Committee. Finalists will be required to present their paper during the conference. A cash award and certificate will be presented at the Awards Ceremony during the conference.

Theoretical aspects of membrane computing

  • Various variants of computing models: cell-, tissue- and neural-like P systems
  • Computing power of membrane computing models
  • Computing efficiency of membrane computing models

Applications of membrane computing

  • Robots controller design
  • Modeling using P systems for biological systems, ecological systems, traffic systems, etc.
  • Membrane-inspired optimization algorithms for various problems
  • Other applications

Implementation of membrane computing models

  • Software implementation
  • Hardware implementation
  • Biological implementation
  • Other implementation

Bio-Inspired Optimization Techniques

  • Genetic algorithm (Inspired by DNA)
  • Membrane algorithms (Inspired by cells), etc

ACMC 2015 also welcome the submissions from other research areas related to membrane computing or dealing with cellular computing such as DNA computing.
