****************************************************************************

 
AIMS:

 

TPNC is a conference series intending to cover the wide spectrum of computational principles, models and techniques inspired by information processing in nature. TPNC 2019 will reserve significant room for young scholars at the beginning of their career and particular focus will be put on methodology. The conference aims at attracting contributions to nature-inspired models of computation, synthesizing nature by means of computation, nature-inspired materials, and information processing in nature.

 
VENUE:

 

TPNC 2019 will take place in Kingston, a city midway between Toronto and Montréal with an important military history. The venue will be:

 

Royal Military College of Canada

Kingston, Ontario

Canada K7K 7B4
