Original papers are solicited in all areas of 
Physics and Computation (and related fields). 
Typical, but not exclusive, topics are:

- Analogue Computation
- Axiomatization of Physics: completeness, decidability, reduction
- Church-Turing thesis
- Computing beyong the Turing barrier
- Digital Physics
- Philosophy of Physics (and computation)
- Quantum computation (digital, analogue). 
Applications to Biology. Quantum logics
- Reaction-diffusion models of computation: 
including Brain Dynamics, BZ Computers
- Relativity: spacetimes, computation, time travel, speedup
- Theory of measurement: axiomatization, complexity

All researchers in the area of the Workshop are 
kindly invited to submit their extended abstracts 
(4-5 pages) and / or papers (at most 12 pages) 
electronically, via Easychair: 

The submissions are expected to be in PDF format 
using the suitable class files of Springer LNCS. 
Joint submissions to other conferences are not permitted.

Each accepted paper must be presented at the Workshop.
