The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation (UCNC) is a meeting where scientists from many different backgrounds are united in their interest in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and computational aspects of natural processes. UCNC provides a forum for such scientists to meet and discuss their work.
The 15th UCNC will take place in Manchester, UK; birthplace of the industrial revolution, home to Alan Turing and the first ever stored-program computer, and the driving force behind graphene. Our status as a thriving centre for excellence in science and technology has been recognised by Manchester’s selection as the European City of Science for 2016, and UCNC is proud to play a role in this celebration.
Accepted papers will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series, and the authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions for publication in a special issue of Natural Computing.
