Scope and topics of interest

Natural Computing can be broadly defined as the development of computer programs and computational algorithms using metaphorical inspiration from system and phenomena that occur in the natural world. Fundamentals of Natural Computing: Basic Concepts, Algorithms, and Applications present a wide-ranging survey of novel techniques and important applications of nature-based computing. The goal of NIT 2010 is to offer a platform to critically assess present findings in the field, and to outline future developments in nature-inspired computing. Original papers describing current research in the areas given below are invited, but other relevant areas also welcome. Papers in application areas of the same fields will also be considered.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Cellular Computing
- DNA Computing
- Evolutionary Computation
- Membrane Computing
- Molecular Computing
- Neural Computing
- Quantum Computing

- Bioinformatics
- Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery
- Decision Making and Decision Support Systems
- Evolvable Hardware
- Information Retrieval
- Knowledge Management
- Multi-agent Structures and Systems
