New Worlds of Computation

This is a sequel to the second worskop New Worlds of Computation (NWC '11) May 23-24, 2011, Orléans, France

Submission is fully open (i.e. NOT restricted to NWC participants)


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

The New Worlds of Computation workshop series concentrates on models of computation that fall out of the Turing context:

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 reframed) and communities have emerged: computable analysis, algebraic models, quantum computing, DNA, cellular automaton... All of them venture 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. Unfortunately, there is no miraculous generalized Church-Turing thesis (nor specialized analog nor...).

The audience aimed at is roughly the same as:
