Call for Participation

Seventh Brainstorming Week on Membrane Computing (BWMC 2009)

February 2 - 6, 2009, Sevilla, Spain

Similarly to previous editions, the goal is to gather together researchers interested in Membrane Computing (theory and applications), in order to exchange ideas, problems, solutions, and work together, in a friendly framework. Short and provocative presentations will be scheduled in the first half of the first days, then time will be mainly devoted to joint work. Those interested in having presentations should inform the organizers some days before the meeting. Of course, open problems, draft solutions, and any kind of ideas to be debated during the meeting can be circulated through the P systems web page - and both participants and non-participants are kindly invited to do this.
