  • Included in the cutting edge material found here are various proposals for computations that go beyond the Turing model
  • All current aspects of unconventional computation are addressed, including theory as well as experiments and applications

There is a world beyond Turing, as more and more computer researchers are demonstrating, but where would you find out about the current leading edge in unconventional computation?

Here, in this fascinating work that is the refereed proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Unconventional Computation, held in Kingston, Canada, in August 2007.

The 17 revised full papers presented together with 4 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book.

All current aspects of unconventional computation are addressed, including theory as well as experiments and applications.

Exemplar topics discussed in the papers include natural computing including quantum, cellular, molecular, neural and evolutionary computing; and chaos and dynamical systems based computing.

Also included in the cutting edge material found here are various proposals for computations that go beyond the Turing model.

As always with Springer proceedings digests, this edition comes with online files and updates.
