Workshop “New Directions In Biocomputation"
12.09.2017 (Tuesday) - 13.09.2017 (Wednesday)
, 11:52 - 11:52
Vienna House QF Hotel , Neumarkt 1 , 01067 Dresden
This workshop is organized in the context of the 5-year EU Horizon 2020 project Bio4Comp (http://bio4comp.org) that aims to develop network-based computing, and to build a strong research community around this challenge. In this approach, combinatorial problems are encoded into nanofabricated networks and solved by large numbers of molecular-motor-propelled protein filaments in so called network-based biocomputation. The realisation of this approach requires the solution to many challenges, ranging from new mathematical approaches via nanofabrication to single-molecule detection and optimisation of molecular motors. In this workshop, experts of quantum- and DNA computing and molecular motor-powered, network-based computing will join forces to develop new directions in biocomputation.
- Approaches to bio- and parallel computing
- Implementation of efficient algorithms
- Efficient encoding and readout of large amounts of information into (biological) computing agents
- Single-molecule sensing and detection
- Fabrication and scale-up of computing devices
