                           WTNC 2010
  4th International Workshop and Tutorials on Natural Computing
            Enschede, the Netherlands, October 2, 2010

In conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Graph

=== 	Deadline for submissions: May 31, 2010 		===
=== 	Proceedings will be published in the EPTCS series 	===

Natural Computing is a research area concerned with computing taking 
place in nature and with human-designed computing inspired by nature. 
It is a fast growing, genuinely interdisciplinary field involving, 
among others computer science, biology, and mathematics. The aim of the 
International Workshop and Tutorials on Natural Computing WTNC 2010 
is to provide a high-level scientific forum for the researchers in 
various areas of Natural Computing as well as to provide a cooperation 
forum for the Natural Computing and on Graph Transformations research 
communities. This is the 4th event in this series of meetings, with 
previous editions held in Barcelona, Spain (with ICGT 2002), Rome, Italy 
(with ICGT 2004), and Leicester, UK (with ICGT 2008).


Papers and extended abstracts are sought in all areas that relate to 
Natural Computing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

	- Membrane systems and natural processes 
	- Petri nets in systems biology 
	- Computational nature of biochemical reactions
	- Abstract state machines in systems biology 
	- Visual languages in systems biology 
	- Modeling with finite and hybrid automata 
	- Unconventional solutions to graph theoretical problems 
	- Hierarchies of models and their refinement 
	- Modeling with evolutionary computation
	- Molecular computing
	- Quantum computing
	- Neural computing

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts or full papers of up
to 15 pages formatted according to the EPTCS guidelines. Submissions can
be uploaded at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wtnc2010.
Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops with
published proceedings is not allowed. The papers will be peer-reviewed 
and the workshop proceedings, published in the EPTCS series, will be 
available at the meeting.
