The workshop aims to bring together researchers working in membrane computing and related areas (such as computational biology, DNA computing, artificial life, theory of computation) in a friendly atmosphere enhancing communication and cooperation.

It is organised by the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot-Watt University and it will take place in the Earl Mountbatten Building, Riccarton campus in Edinburgh, UK.
Specifically: the main lecture room will be room 3.36, the talk of Prof. S. Wolfram will be held in room 1.27, coffee breaks will take place in room 3.02.

Conform the tradition, the workshop is planned as a friendly working meeting, with a good balance of science, tourism, socialising, and scientific collaboration.
The workshop fee is of GBP 150 per person (equivalent to about EUR 200), to be payed in advance and it includes the participation, a welcome packet, coffee/tea breaks and lunches for the duration of the workshop and touristic programme.
The suggested accommodations, to be paid by the participants, are student lodgings in the campus.
