This year the Asian Conference on Membrane Computing (ACMC) and the Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC) are organized as a partially joint event in Trieste, Italy and Quezon City, Philippines under the umbrella event of ICMC 2022.
Membrane Computing is an area of computer science aiming to abstract computing ideas and models from the structure and the functioning of living cells, as well as from the way the cells are organized in tissues or higher order structures. It deals with membrane systems, also called P systems, which are distributed and parallel algebraic models processing multisets of objects in a localized manner (evolution rules and evolving objects are encapsulated into compartments delimited by membranes), with an essential role played by the communication among compartments and with the environment.
ACMC 2022 is the 11th edition of the Asian version of the CMC, which is now on its 23rd edition. Both scientific meetings are organized with the aim of continuing the fruitful tradition of previous editions enriched by some new ideas and inspirations emphasizing being multi-disciplinary and innovative capacity. The conference is intended to bring together researchers working in Membrane Computing and related areas in a friendly atmosphere enhancing communication and cooperation.
Previous editions of ACMC were held at Wuhan, China (2012), Chengdu, China (2013), Coimbatore, India (2014), Anhui, China (2015), Bangi, Malaysia (2016), Chengdu, China (2017), Auckland, New Zealand (2018), and Xiamen, China (2019). From 2020 until 2021, ACMC had been organized jointly and simultaneously with CMC calling the joint meetings International Conference on Membrane Computing (ICMC). The 2020 edition was held online hosted by TU Wien in Vienna, Austria and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The 2021 edition was co-organized by Chengdu, China and Debrecen, Hungary.
ACMC 2022 will be hosted online at the University of the Philippines DIliman, Quezon City, Philippines, while CMC 2022 will be held in Trieste.
