- Church-Turing thesis
- Computing beyong the Turing barrier
- Digital Physics
- Philosophy of Physics (and computation)
- Quantum computation (digital, analogue).
Applications to Biology. Quantum logics
- Reaction-diffusion models of computation:
including Brain Dynamics, BZ Computers
- Relativity: spacetimes, computation, time travel, speedup
- Theory of measurement: axiomatization, complexity
All researchers in the area of the Workshop are
kindly invited to submit their extended abstracts
(4-5 pages) and / or papers (at most 12 pages)
electronically, via Easychair:
