New Worlds of Computation 2011

The second workshop New Worlds of Computation, which was organized by the Laboratoire d'Informatique Fondamentale d'Orléans, took place in Orléans from May 23 till May 24. A number of researchers, mostly from France, gathered and presented their work and ideas regarding computation. Françoise Chatelin talked about the necessity to use mathematical tools in computability theory that have been largely ignored until now. Obviously, such a mathematical tools include fuzzy sets, quaternions, etc. Sama Goliaei talked about her work in optical computing. Mike Stannett talked about his joint-work in cosmological computation (i.e., the exploitation of the properties of the space-time to perform hard and "impossible" computations).  Yaroslav D. Sergeyev presented his "numbering system of infinity" and its use in computation (a possibility that was mentioned in my book on hypercomputation). My talk was about vagueness and its use in computation. Unfortunately, some speakers were not talking loudly so I missed (most of ) their  talks. Below is a picture that was taken just after the launch break:
Unfortunately, it was not possible to stay one more day, but my overall impression was more than positive! Jérôme Durand-Lose, our host and organizer of NWC 2011, talked about his plans to make NWC a biennial event with formal proceedings, etc. I believe this is wonderful idea and I wish him all the best in this endeavor.
