Language Theory in Biocomputing

The theme of the workshop is applications of formal language theory in biocomputing. The workshop solicits new work on the relationships between formal language theory and biocomputing and the uses of formal language theory and automata in modelling biological processes.

Unconventional Computational Problems

The purpose of the workshop is to explore a less developed branch of unconventional computing, where the attribute "unconventional" characterizes the computational paradigm or problem to be solved, rather than the model or means employed to address a conventional problem. This research direction is motivated by the increasing number of real-world problems we are facing today and that cannot be formulated in the rigid framework imposed by a classical Turing machine.
