Workshop on Complex Systems as Computing Models

November 9-10, 2011

Centro de Ciencias de la Complejidad, UNAM

Instituto de Ciencias Nucleares, UNAM

Mexico City

(in collaboration with LCCOMP, LABORES, and ICUC)

Deadline for submissions: August 1, 2011

The “Workshop on Complex Systems as Computing Models” is an international meeting focusing in the results of complex systems, non-linear media, and dynamical systems as models of computation.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers who are currently developing new models based in the manipulation and control of complex systems to perform computation and contributing to the understanding of the concept of computation itself. Examples of this paradigm are reaction-diffusion computers, cellular automata (such as the game of Life and rule 110), DNA-computers, physics of computation, bio-molecular computing, quantum computing, cellular neural networks, competing patterns computing, tiling computing, origami computing, unconventional computing, and natural inspired computation.

The goal is to foster interaction and provide a forum for presenting new ideas and work in progress to enable researchers in the field and related fields to learn about current and future activities of the community in this promising area in development.

WCSCM2011 will be a meeting with presentations both in Spanish and English with submissions also accepted both in Spanish and English (with preference in Spanish).

Plenary speakers

  • Prof. Kenichi Morita
    Hiroshima University, Japan
  • Dr. Salvador Elías Venegas Andraca
