Proceedings of the Eleventh International Conference on Membrane Computing
Verlag ProBusiness Berlin, 482 p., 2010
ISBN 978-3-86805-721-8

Having now for the first time the status of a conference, CMC11 is pleased to continue the fruitful tradition of 10 previous events of the International Workshop on Membrane Computing (WMC) inspired by the idea of bringing together researchers working in membrane computing or related areas in a friendly atmosphere enhancing communication and cooperation. This volume contains seven abstracts of keynote and invited talks together with 26 accepted papers and six contributions accepted as extended abstracts. Membrane computing is an area of computer science aiming to abstract computing ideas and models from the structure and the functioning of living cells. From a systems biological point of view, membrane systems provide a discrete modelling approach to describe biological reaction systems composed of interconnected membranes.
