Due to several requests, submission is still open for late contributions until June 11th, 2018. To do so, please send a PDF of your paper or extended abstract via email to:
Late submissions will be included into the preproceedings volume within a special chapter. During the conference and immediately after oral presentation, we will decide in the audience (by majority of votes) about the quality and about inclusion into the post-conference LNCS proceedings.

Original research contributions (including significant work-in-progress) on membrane computing, its applications and related subjects are sought. Contributions reporting in-vivo or in-silico experimental results are particularly encouraged. Authors are invited to submit their contribution as PDF, written in English and preferrably prepared in LaTeX using Springer LNCS style (llncs).

There are two tracks for submission:

  • Full paper of a reasonable length

    There is no strict page limit for submission of a full paper. Along with the review process, a maximum number of pages for the pre-proceedings or proceedings version can be defined if necessary. Additional supplementary material might be made available on a web page whose reference is mentioned within the paper.

  • Extended abstract for short 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.

A full paper is allowed to be arranged as a Software Manual. In this case, the title should include the phrase «Software Manual». A software manual should introduce a self-made software tool relevant to applications for membrane computing or related areas (e.g. a membrane system simulator, a membrane system designer, a visualization tool, a format converter, a statistical tool, a new version of an existing membrane computing tool with extended or revised features, ...). A typical software manual consists of at least three parts: the user manual, a (short) technical description, and some dedicated case studies like simulation results or findings. Moreover, a software manual should contain a download or access link via internet to enable the reviewers to test the corresponding software.

Only electronic submissions are accepted. Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed.

Submission via EasyChair closed.

All submissions will be reviewed by at least three referees. To ensure inclusion of an accepted contribution into the (pre)proceedings volume, at least one of its authors must be registered for CMC19. The pre-proceedings volume will be available during the conference. The final proceedings, a volume in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, for selected and additionally refereed papers, will be published after CMC19. In addition, a selection of best papers is planned to be published within the new Springer Journal of Membrane Computing. Details will be given during the conference.

Springer will sponsor the Best Student Paper Award (EUR 500.00) at CMC19.
