Special issue on

New Worlds of Computation

This is a sequel to the Worskop New Worlds of Computation (NWC '09) January 12, 2009, Orléans, FRANCE


The special issue aims at gathering papers from a wide off-Turing community in order to bring forth the common problematics as well as divergent results.

Models of computation that fall out of the Turing context:

The classical Turing computability has been THE paradigm for computation for more than half a century. In less than two decades, various paradigms have been proposed (invented, discovered or re-framed) and communities have emerged. All of them fall outside the classical context because they manipulate objects that are just out of the classical scope (infinite objects or uncountably many values) or continuous or infinite time or just because they bring forth different complexity or computability classes. Unfortunately, there is no miraculous generalized Church-Turing thesis (nor specialized analog nor...).

The audience aimed at is roughly the same as:
