      OVERVIEW

      The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation has 
      been a  meeting where scientists with different backgrounds, yet sharing a common interest 
      in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and the 
      computational aspects of processes taking place in nature, present their latest results. Papers
      and poster presentations are sought in all areas, theoretical or experimental, that relate to 
      unconventional computation and natural computation. Typical, but not exclusive, topics are:

      * Molecular (DNA) computing, Quantum computing, Optical computing, Hypercomputation - 
      relativistic computation, Chaos computing, Physarum computing, Computation in hyperbolic 
      spaces, Collision-based computing, Computations beyond the Turing model;

      * Cellular automata, Neural computation, Evolutionary computation, Swarm intelligence, 
      Ant algorithms, Artificial immune systems, Artificial life, Membrane computing, 
      Amorphous computing;

      * Computational Systems Biology, Genetic networks, Protein-protein networks, Transport
      networks, Synthetic biology, Cellular (in vivo) computing.

      INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS: See details on the above website which also contains
      information about important dates and committees.
