CALL FOR PAPERS: Natural Computing, 20-22 March 2013, Tokyo, JAPAN


Organized by: SIG-NAC, Japanese Society of Artificial Intelligence
Co-organized by:Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas
?Synthetic biology for the comprehension of Biomolecular networks? project
and ?Molecular Robotics? project

Computation is an intrinsic feature of natural and artificial systems
because almost all of them can transform information in a predictable
or programmable way. We witness experimental prototypes of natural
computers: plasmodium computers, reaction-diffusion processors,
amorphous computers, DNA computers, and theoretical paradigms:
cellular automata, artificial chemistry, P-systems, evolutionary
computing, neural networks.
Fine mechanics of computation may significantly differ from system to
system and even be somewhere ambiguous. This workshop aims to
bring together computer scientists, biologists, physicists, mathematicians,
electronic engineers, aestheticians and so on to critically assess
present findings in the field, and to outline future developments in
natural computing.

-Computing with Natural media:
Synthetic Biology, Molecular Robotics, Slime mold computing, Computing
with chemical reaction, Reaction-diffusion computing, Unconventional
Computing models, etc.

-Bio-Inspired Computing: Ant / Bees Algorithm, Swarm intelligence,
Evolutional Computing, etc.

-Model and Theory:
Artificial Life, Cellular Automaton, DNA computing, P systems, Formal
Language theory and model for natural computing, Multiset computing,
Mathematical Biology, etc.

-Computational Aesthetics:
  Theory of or/and Empirical Aesthetics, Design / Fine and Media Art /
Music relating to computing or/and Nature, Scientific Visualization, etc.

-Philosophy of Natural Computing:
  Philosophy of Computing, Scientific Philosophy of Natural Computing,
-Other related topics:
