The Journal of Membrane Computing (JMC) provides a forum for developing and nurturing an international community of scholars and practitioners who are interested in all aspects of membrane computing: theories, interdisciplinary areas, applications, and implementations. JMC welcomes high-quality submissions that contribute to the full range of membrane computing research, from cell-like P systems, tissue P systems, spiking neural P systems, and other types of P systems, to membrane algorithms, computational complexity, interdisciplinary research combining membrane computing and evolutionary computing and neural networks, to applications like optimization and biosystem modeling, and membrane computing implementations with nanotechnology. This uniquely broad range facilitates the cross-fertilization of ideas between biological and technological studies, and helps to spur on the advancement of an interdisciplinary community that is interested in biologically inspired computational intelligence. Accordingly, the Journal of Membrane Computing editorial board represents experts in a range of fields, including theoretical computer science, engineering, mathematics, and nanotechnology. The journal publishes original, high-quality and previously unpublished research papers, survey and review articles, short communications, and tutorial papers.
