NIT 2016

VII-th International Conference

Natural Information Technologies

October 18 - October 22, 2016, Universidad Politécnica of Valencia (Spain)



Aims and Scope

Natural Computing can be broadly defined as the development of computer programs and computational algorithms using metaphorical inspiration from system and phenomena that occur in the natural world. Fundamentals of Natural Computing: Basic Concepts, Algorithms, and Applications present a wide-ranging survey of novel techniques and important applications of nature-based computing.
The goal of NIT International Confecence is to offer a platform to critically assess present findings in the field, and to outline future developments in nature-inspired computing.
Original papers describing current research in the areas given below are invited, but other relevant areas also welcome. Papers in application areas of the same fields will also be considered.
