[DMANET] 3rd Workshop New Worlds of Computation (NWC 2017) (call forpresentation and registration)

Call for Presentation and Registration

New Worlds of Computation (NWC 2017)
12-14 Apr. 2017 in Orléans (France)

The 3rd edition of the International Workshop New Worlds of Computation
(NWC 2017) will be held in Orléans, France, 12th to 14th April 2017.
This edition will be co-located with the Journées du GT Calculabilités
du GdR Informatique Mathématique, the French days on computabilities.

What will computers be made out of in 2030? In 2050? What would be the
main paradigm(s)? Would electronics be replaced by some other medium for
common computers? For Clouds? For large computers? For dedicated
treatments? It would be presumptuous to say when and by what, all or
parts of our electronic devices would be replaced. Nevertheless,
researchers explore many directions: optical, quantum, bio-computing,
chemo-computing, DNA and the nano world… Would it be analog or digital?
The workshop aims at gathering people interested and investigating the
alternatives, providing fundamental or applied results. The ambition is
to allow the presentation of the newest results as well as foster
interactions between different perspectives.

The third edition of the workshop will be co-localized with the Journées
(French days) of the working group in Calculabilités (computabilities)
from the GdR Informatique Mathématique of the CNRS. This working group
will provide insights on what would be possible or not in future
computers. This co-location will permit new encounters and provide

The topics involved include natural, unconventional and hyper computations:

analog computation and computable analysis
computation on real, rings… (BSS)
recursion theory
continuous and hybrid computation
cellular automata
collision based computation
quantum computation
DNA computation and tile assembly systems
membrane computing
signal machines
computation on infinite structures or in infinite time
non-Euclidean spaces, non-standard approaches
spatial, optical, fuzzy,… computation

Invited Speakers

ADAMATZKY Andrew, University of the West of England, Bristol
FOROUGHMAND-ARAABI Mohammad-Hadi, Sharif University of Technology, Iran
MAYORDOMO Elvira, Universidad de Zaragoza, Espagna
VALARCHER Pierre, Université Paris Est Créteil

Proceedings are composed of a booklet collecting the abstracts of the

After the workshop, a special issue of the International Journal on
Unconventional Computing will be devoted to extended articles on the
results presented at NWC.

In order to make a presentation, you have to submit a title and an
(short textual) abstract. The refereeing process is not meant to be
selective but to check the coherence with the topics. It is open to work
in progress or presented elsewhere. Presentation slots will be large
enough to present context, results, methodology, proofs, expected
progress… PhD student are particularly welcomed.

Submission deadline: 22th March 2017

Notifications: 27th March 2017
The referee process is only targeted at verifying that presentation
matches with the topics.

The submission process is common to both event (NWC and J.
Calculabilités). One has to provide:

Short Abstract
Whose event it is intended to or if for both (i.e. one presentation
common to both)

To be able to access the submission page, one must be a logged

Registration is free but compulsory. It includes lunches and banquet.
