About this book

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Unconventional Computation, UC 2008, held in Vienna, Austria, in August 2008.

The 16 revised full papers presented together with 4 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected for inclusion in the book. The papers are devoted to all aspects of unconventional computation ranging from theoretical and experimental aspects to various applications. Typical topics are: natural computing including quantum, cellular, molecular, neural and evolutionary computing, chaos and dynamical system-based computing, and various proposals for computations that go beyond the Turing model.
