Some history
The Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC) series started in 2000 as the Workshop on Multiset Processing. The first Workshop on Membrane Computing was organized in Curtea de Arges, Romania, in 2001. In 2010 it was transformed into a conference, CMC11. More recently, in 2021, during the pandemic, CMC22 was organized online by the Chengdu University (China) and the University of Debrecen (Hungary) and hosted at Debrecen (Hungary). In 2022, CMC23, was held in Trieste (Italy). The 24th edition of CMC took place in Opava (Czech Republic). This year the conference take place in Nice at the Université Côte d'Azur. Nowadays a Steering Committee takes care of the continuation of the CMC series which is organized under the auspices of the International Membrane Computing Society (IMCS). More details on past events can be found here.
Aim and scope
Membrane computing, like artificial neural networks, evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence, cellular automata and DNA computing, is also a branch of nature-inspired computing initiated by Gheorghe Păun in 1998. It aims to abstract computing models, called membrane systems or P systems, from the structure and the functioning of the living cell as well as from the cooperation of cells in tissues, organs, and populations of cells. This research area has grown into a vigorous scientific discipline and has attracted a large number of researchers all over the world. For more information, please refer to the P systems Webpage and to the International Membrane Computing Society Webpage.

CMC2024 is organised to provide an open platform to bring together scholars worldwide to present their recent work on membrane computing, on topics related to theory, application and implementation of membrane computing but not limited to as follows:

- Theoretical aspects of membrane computing
  • Various variants of computing models: cell-, tissue- and neural-like P systems.
  • Computing power of membrane computing models.
  • Computing efficiency of membrane computing models.
- Applications of membrane computing
  • Robot controller design.
  • Modeling using P systems for biosystems, biomedicine, ecological systems, etc.
  • Membrane-inspired optimisation algorithms for various problems.
  • Fault diagnosis of various systems, such as robots, power systems, etc.
  • Information and communication technologies.
  • Information security and cryptography.
  • Other applications.
- Implementation of membrane computing models
  • Software implementation.
  • Hardware implementation.
  • Biological implementation.
  • Biochip implementation.

  • Other topics related to membrane computing or dealing with cellular computing, DNA computing, reaction systems, etc.

Anti-harassment policy

We believe that the advancement of research is best accomplished in an environment that is open, diverse and respectful to all participants. During the conference, we will follow the anti-harassment policy of ACM. Anyone witnessing or subject to unacceptable behaviour should notify the conference chairs.
