CMC 2023

The 24th Conference on Membrane Computing

28-31 August 2023 Opava, Czech Republic

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. For more information, please refer to the P systems Webpage ( and to the International Membrane Computing Society Webpage (

CMC 2023 is organised to provide an open platform to bring together scholars worldwide to present their recent work on membrane computing, on topics related to theory, application and implementation of membrane computing but not limited to as follows:

Submission Deadline June 1, 2023
Notification Deadline July 15, 2023
Final Version July 30, 2023
Conference August 28-31, 2023

Submission instructions

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) (

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

Submission and publication

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 to CMC 2023. The pre-proceedings volume will be available during the conference.

A selections of accepted papers will be re-reviewed and considered for publication in an international journal.
