Present CFP : 2020

The Sixteenth International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature (PPSN XVI) will be held in Leiden, The Netherlands on September 5-9, 2020. Leiden University and the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS) are proud to host the 30th anniversary of PPSN.

PPSN brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of Natural Computing, the study of computing approaches which are gleaned from natural models. The field includes, but is not limited to, areas such as Amorphous Computing, Artificial Life, Artificial Ant Systems, Artificial Immune Systems, Artificial Neural Networks, Cellular Automata, Evolutionary Computation, Swarm Computing, Self-Organizing Systems, Chemical Computation, Molecular Computation, Quantum Computation, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence approaches using Natural Computing methods.

PPSN XVI will feature workshops and tutorials covering advanced and fundamental topics in the field of Natural Computing, as well as algorithm competitions. The keynote talks will be given by the world-renowned researchers in their fields.

Following PPSN’s unique tradition, all accepted papers will be presented during poster sessions and will be included in the proceedings. The proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer. Prospective authors are invited to contribute their high-quality original results in the field of natural computation as papers of no more than 12 pages plus references. The format follows Springer Verlag LNCS style.

Leiden is just 15 minutes by train from the 3rd largest airport in Europe, Schiphol Amsterdam (AMS) – which can be reached by direct flights from more than 300 destinations world-wide.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at PPSN XVI in Leiden!
