Natural Computing is the study of computational systems which use ideas and get inspiration from natural systems, including biological, ecological, physical, chemical, and social systems. It is a fast- growing interdisciplinary field in which a range of techniques and methods are studied for dealing with large, complex, and dynamic problems with various sources of potential uncertainties.

PPSN XII will be a showcase of a wide range of topics in Natural Computing including, but not restricted to: Evolutionary Computation, Neural Computation, Molecular Computation, Quantum Computation, Artificial Life, Swarm Intelligence, Artificial Ant Systems, Artificial Immune Systems, Self-Organizing Systems, Emergent Behaviors, and Applications to Real-World Problems. PPSN XII will also feature workshops and tutorials covering advanced and fundamental topics in the field of natural computation.

Submissions should present significant contributions. All accepted papers will be presented during poster sessions and will be included in the proceedings. Following the tradition of PPSN, we plan to publish the proceedings in the Series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) by Springer.

The preceding symposia were held in Dortmund, Brussels, Jerusalem, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris, Granada, Birmingham, Reykjavik, Dortmund, and Krakow.


Submission deadline: March 15, 2012 Author notification: June 1, 2012 Camera-ready submission: June 20, 2012


Accepted papers will appear in the PPSN 2012 proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series.


Authors are invited to submit high-quality manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to the symposium. Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed.

Submissions must not exceed 10 pages formatted according to LNCS style. All papers will be peer reviewed and comments will be provided to the authors.
