UC 2011 is organized by the FUNDIM laboratory of the mathematics department at the University of Turku, Finland, under the auspices of EATCS.

Original papers and posters are solicited in all all areas of unconventional computation. Papers/posters dealing with theory as well as with experiments and applications are welcome. Typical, but not exclusive, topics are: natural computing including quantum, cellular, molecular, neural and membrane computing, as well as evolutionary paradigms; chaos and dynamical systems based computing; proposals for computations going beyond the Turing model.

Submissions: Authors are invited to submit papers (at most 12 pages) or posters electronically, via EasyChair:
All submissions are expected to be in the pdf format. Paper submissions should be prepared following the LNCS format of Springer. Poster submissions should contain either a graphical poster or an abstract with sufficient details for the reviewers. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences with published proceedings are not permitted. Each accepted paper/poster must be presented at the conference. The author of the poster is responsible for printing it. The proceedings (only for papers) will be published by Springer LNCS series and will be available at the conference.
