CALL FOR PAPERS

                    Workshop on Physics and Computation
                                (PC'09)

    		http://www.lix.polytechnique.fr/~bournez/PC2009/

                    (Satellite event of UC'2009)

****************************************************************************

Physics and computation have interacted from the early days of
computing. Ultimately, physics laws permit computation. The aim of the
workshop is to bring together researchers with various interests in
the area to discuss important issues like fundamental physical limits
of computers, chaos and dynamical systems, quantum computers and
hypercomputation.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  * Relativistic Computation
  * Quantum Computing and Information
  * Molecular Computing and Reaction Diffusion
  * Dynamical Systems
  * Randomness
  * New models of computation
  * Cellular automata
  * Analog Computation
  * Bio-inspired Computing
  * Hypercomputation
