UC'07 is the 6th Conference in the Series
conference will consist of four keynote addresses and regular paper
presentations in all areas of unconventional computation, reporting on
theoretical results, experiments and applications. Typical, but not
exclusive, topics are: natural computing including quantum, cellular,
molecular, neural and evolutionary computing; chaos and dynamical
systems based computing; and various proposals for computations that go
beyond the Turing model.
In addition, there will be two workshops, on
Theory in Biocomputing, and Unconventional Computational Problems,
respectively. As well, two tutorials will be offered on Quantum
Information Processing and Wireless Ad hoc and Sensor Networks.
venue of the Unconventional Computation Conference (formerly called
Unconventional Models of Computation) was Auckland, New Zealand in
1998; subsequent sites of the conference were Brussels, Belgium in
2000, Kobe, Japan in 2002, Sevilla, Spain in 2005, and York, U.K. in
2006. By coming to
Kingston in 2007, the International Conference on
Unconventional Computation makes its debut in the Americas.
Please join us for what promises to be an exciting and productive event.
founded in 1673 where Lake
runs into the St Lawrence River, and served as Canada's first capital.
Renowned as the fresh-water capital of North America, Kingston is a
major port to cruise the famous Thousand Islands. The `Limestone City'
has developed a thriving artistic and entertainment life and hosts
several festivals each year. Other points of interest include Fort
Henry, a 19th century British military fortress, as well as seventeen
museums that showcase everything from woodworking to military and
conference events take place at the Four Points Hotel in downtown
