Conference format

This edition aims to have the following format, although some changes might occur based on suggestions made by the Steering Committee. It is planned to include: (1) three days of communications with invited speakers and short and long contribution talks according to the papers submitted and the reviews of the Program Committee, and (2) an Interaction Day similar in spirit to the Brainstorming Week on Membrane Computing (BWMC) that is usually organized in Sevilla every year, where the participants will work in a collaborative way to attack open problems and propose new approaches, problems and results. An IMCS General Assembly will be also organized.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original, unpublished research in PDF format. There are two tracks for submission:

  1. full paper (of a reasonable length)
  2. extended abstract for poster presentation (maximum four pages). Typical extended abstracts present significant work-in-progress, late-breaking results, or contributions from students new in the field or at the start of their research career

Only electronic submissions are accepted. Papers should be written in LaTeX and formatted according to the usual LNCS article style which can be downloaded at Springer's LNCS website. Please, include all source files as well as all additional files (figures etc.), and also attach a PDF version of the submission. Submissions have to be sent through the EasyChair web page

After logging into your EasyChair account, select the "New Submission" menu item on the top of the page. If you do not have an EasyChair account, follow the instructions on the login page.


A pre-proceedings volume will be available at the conference in electronic format and also online. A volume devoted to selected and additionally revised papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of Springer-Verlag after the event.
