1st CALL FOR PAPERS: Developments on Computational Models, 17 June 2012, Cambridge (U.K.)

http://www.math.uni-hamburg.de/home/loewe/DCM2012/

DCM 2012-8th International Workshop on Developments in Computational Models: A satellite workshop of CiE 2012

Several new models of computation have emerged in the last few years, and many developments of 
traditional computational models have been proposed with the aim of taking into account the new 
demands of computer systems users and the new capabilities of computation engines. The aim of the 
workshop series Developments in Computational Models is to bring together researchers who are 
currently developing new computational models or new features for traditional computational models,
in order to foster their interaction, to provide a forum for presenting new ideas and work in 
progress, and to enable newcomers to learn about current activities in this area.

DCM 2012 is part of the celebrations of the Turing Centenary and is a satellite event of the 
conference Computability in Europe. It will take place on 17 June, the day before the Bletchley 
Park excursion of CiE 2012. All participants of CiE 2012 and researchers interested in new 
models of computation in general are cordially invited to submit a paper to DCM 2012.

Topics of interest include all abstract models of computation and their properties, and their 
applications to the development of programming languages and systems:

   (*) quantum computation, including implementations and formal methods in quantum protocols;

   (*) probabilistic computation and verification in modeling situations;

   (*) chemical, biological and bio-inspired computation, including spatial models, self-assembly, growth models;

   (*) general concurrent models including the treatment of mobility, trust, and security;

   (*) information-theoretic ideas in computing;

   (*) infinitary models of computation;

   (*) comparisons of different models of computations.

We are inviting all active researchers to submit papers to DCM 2012. The proceedings will be 
published electronically in the series "Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science" 
(EPTCS) as post-proceedings after the workshop.

Only original papers will be considered: manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding
 that the same work has not been published, nor is presently submitted, elsewhere. All papers have 
to be prepared using the EPTCS macro package which can be downloaded here: 
http://style.eptcs.org/. Papers can have up to 12 pages in EPTCS style.

Papers are submitted via our easychair site

   https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dcm2012

in PDF format before the deadline of 15 April 2012.
