17th International Conference
on Membrane Computing (CMC17)

The 17th International Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC17) will take place at Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca, Italy, on 25–29 July 2016.

The goal of CMC17 is to bring together researchers working in membrane computing and related fields, in a friendly atmosphere enhancing communication,cooperation and continuing the tradition of the past meetings. Membrane computing (P systems theory) 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.

CMC17 is organized under the auspices of the International Membrane Computing Society (IMCS). Springer will sponsor the Best Student Paper Award at CMC17.


Authors are invited to submit papers (of resonable length) presenting original, unpublished research as a PDF document.

Only electronic submissions are accepted. Papers should be formatted according to the usual LNCS article style which can be downloaded from Springer’s LNCS website. Please, include all source files as well as all additional files (figures etc.), and also attach a PDF variant 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 selection of further revised papers of CMC has been published as a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer.
