The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation has been a meeting where scientists with different backgrounds, yet sharing a common interest in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and the computational aspects of processes taking place in nature, meet and present their latest results. Continuing this tradition, the 13th International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation will focus on the current experimental and theoretical results with the greatest impact. Typical but not exclusive topics are:

  • Molecular Computing
  • Quantum computing
  • Optical computing
  • Hypercomputation, relativistic computation
  • Chaos computing
  • Physarum computing
  • Hyperbolic space computation
  • Collision-based computing
  • Super-Turing computation
  • Cellular automata
  • Neural computation
  • Evolutionary computation
  • Swarm intelligence
  • Ant algorithms
  • Artificial immune systems
  • Artificial Life
  • Membrane computing
  • Amorphous computing
  • Computational Systems Biology
    • genetic networks
    • protein-protein nertworks
    • transport networks
  • Synthetic biology
  • Cellular (in-vivo) computing
