ICMC 2021 - International Conference on Membrane Computing

ICMC 2021 - International Conference on Membrane Computing

Chengdu, China and Debrecen, Hungary

Online Session, August 25-26, 2021

Due to the continuing of the pandemic caused by the Corona virus, the two main conferences organized annually by the Membrane Computing community through IMCS, the 10th Asian Conference on Membrane Computing (ACMC 2021) and the 22nd (European) Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC 2021) are united in one joint conference also in 2021.

The International Conference on Membrane Computing 2021 (ICMC 2021) is organized by the Chengdu University of Information Technology, Chengdu, China and by the Faculty of Informatics of the University of Debrecen, Hungary.

The online session is hosted by the University of Debrecen on August 25-26, 2021.

Conference Topics

Like artificial neural networks, evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence, cellular automata and DNA computing, membrane computing is also a branch of natural computing or nature-inspired computing and was initiated by Gheorghe Păun in 1998. It aims to abstract computing models, called membrane systems or P systems, from the structure and the functioning of the living cell as well as from the cooperation of cells in tissues, organs, and populations of cells. This research area has grown into a vigorous scientific discipline and has attracted a large number of researchers all over the world.

The International Conference on Membrane Computing (ICMC2021) is organized to bring together scholars worldwide to present their recent work on membrane computing, on topics related to theory, application and implementation of membrane computing as follows:

(1) 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.

(2) Applications of membrane computing

  • Robot controller design.
  • Modeling using P systems for biosystems, biomedicine, ecological systems, etc.
  • Membrane-inspired optimization algorithms for various problems.
  • Fault diagnosis of various systems, such as robots, power systems, etc.
  • Information and communication technologies.
  • Information security and cryptography.
  • Other applications.

(3) Implementation of membrane computing models

  • Software implementation.
  • Hardware implementation.
  • Biological implementation.
  • Biochip implementation.
  • Other implementations.

(4) Related topics

  • Bio-Inspired Optimization Techniques, such as optimization algorithms inspired by cells or DNA computing.
  • Other topics related to membrane computing or dealing with cellular computing, DNA computing, reaction systems, etc.
