Aims and Scope
The International Journal of Unconventional Computing offers the opportunity for rapid publication of theoretical and experimental results in non-classical computing. Specific topics include but are not limited to:
• physics of computation (e.g. conservative logic, thermodynamics of computation, reversible computing, quantum computing, collision-based computing with solitons, optical logic)
• chemical computing (e.g. implementation of logical functions in chemical systems, image processing and pattern recognition in reaction-diffusion chemical systems and networks of chemical reactors)
• bio-molecular computing (e.g. conformation based, information processing in molecular arrays, molecular memory)
• cellular automata as models of massively parallel computing
• complexity (e.g. computational complexity of non-standard computer architectures; theory of amorphous computing; artificial chemistry)
• logics of unconventional computing (e.g. logical systems derived from space-time behavior of natural systems; non-classical logics; logical reasoning in physical, chemical and biological systems)
• smart actuators (e.g. molecular machines incorporating information processing, intelligent arrays of actuators)
• novel hardware systems (e.g. cellular automata VLSIs, functional neural chips)
• mechanical computing (e.g. micromechanical encryption, computing in nanomachines, physical limits to mechanical computation).
Both theoretical and experimental contributions are invited.
