O Professor José Félix (CFCUL/GI1) passou a integrar o Advisory Board de série internacional de livros “World Scientific Series in Unconventional Computing”, publicada pela editora World Scientific (Singapura).
World Scientific Series in Unconventional Computing
The series publishes books uncovering, exploring and utilizing principles and mechanisms of information processing in and studying the functional properties of physical, chemical and living systems to develop efficient algorithms, design novel architectures and produce experimental laboratory prototypes of future and emergent computing devices. The topics covered include bio-molecular computing (e.g. conformation based, information processing in molecular arrays, molecular memory, molecular circuitry), physics of computation (e.g. conservative logic, thermodynamics of computation, reversible computing, quantum computing, collision-based computing with solitons, optical logic), cellular and graph automata models of parallel computing, 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), computing in networks and ensembles of oscillators, complexity (e.g. computational complexity of non-standard computer architectures; theory of amorphous computing; artificial chemistry), smart actuators (e.g. molecular machines incorporating information processing, intelligent arrays of actuators), computing embedded into materials (e.g. smart concrete, living architectures), 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), 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).
