On September 10-14, 2022, the seventeenth International Conference on Parallel Problem Solving from Nature (PPSN XVII) will be hosted in Dortmund, Germany.

The PPSN brings together researchers and practitioners working in the subject of Natural Computing, which is the study of computing methods derived from natural models. Amorphous Computing, Artificial Life, Artificial Ant Systems, Artificial Immune Systems, Artificial Neural Networks, Cellular Automata, Evolutionary Computation, Swarm Computing, Self-Organizing Systems, Chemical Computation, Molecular Computation, Quantum Computation, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence approaches using Natural Computing methods are just some of the topics covered in this field.

Workshops and tutorials on advanced and fundamental subjects in Natural Computing will be offered during PPSN XVII. The keynote addresses will be delivered by world-renowned experts in respective disciplines. All accepted papers will be presented during poster sessions and published in the proceedings, as is the PPSN tradition.
