THE 24thConference on Membrane Computing

CMC 2023 will be held both in person and online!

August 28th to 31st
Opava, Czech Republic

CMC 2023

The Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC) series started in 2000 as the Workshop on Multiset Processing. The first Workshop on Membrane Computing was organized in Curtea de Arges, Romania, in 2001. In 2010 it was transformed into a conference, CMC11. The last edition, CMC23, was held in Trieste, Italy, in 2022. Nowadays a Steering Committee takes care of the continuation of the CMC series which is organized under the auspices of the International Membrane Computing Society (IMCS)

The 24th edition of the International Conference on Membrane Computing series will take place the Silesian University in Opava, Czech Republic. In August 2021, the Silesian University was granted the prestigious HR Excellence in Research Award. Opava is a picturesque historic city in the Moravian-Silesian Region, full of interesting landmarks and cultural heritage. The most significant landmarks include the Co-cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, the Opava Way of the Cross, which is the only one in the world located in the city streets, and many more. For lovers of history, architecture, and art, a visit to Opava is an unforgettable experience that offers a unique view of the cultural heritage of this picturesque Moravian-Silesian city.

Aims and Scope

Membrane computing is an area of computer science 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. It deals with membrane systems, also called P systems, which are distributed and parallel algebraic models processing multisets of objects in a localised manner (evolution rules and evolving objects are encapsulated into compartments delimited by membranes), with an essential role played by the communication among compartments and with the environment.

From a systems biological point of view, membrane systems provide a discrete modelling approach to describe biological reaction systems composed of interconnected membranes. Each membrane delimits a spatial region in which chemical reactions can occur. Within a membrane, a multiset of objects represents molecular particles while dedicated term-rewriting mechanisms simultaneously execute reaction rules associated to each membrane. Supplementary rules can control the exchange of objects among membranes or even modify the membrane structure. Hence, capturing descriptional aspects of structural dynamics is seen as an advantageous feature of membrane systems.
