Computation is an intrinsic feature of natural and artificial systems because almost all of them can transform information in a predictable or programmable way. We witness experimental prototypes of natural computers: plasmodium computers, reaction-diffusion processors, amorphous computers, DNA computers, and theoretical paradigms: cellular automata, artificial chemistry, P-systems, evolutionary computing, neural networks. Fine mechanics of computation may significantly differ from system to system and even be somewhere ambiguous. This workshop aims to bring together computer scientists, biologists, physicists, mathematicians, electronic engineers, aestheticians and so on to critically assess present findings in the field, and to outline future developments in natural computing.
