Scope:

The workshop on Novel Computational Paradigms, Methods and Approaches in Bioinformatics brings together computer scientists and engineers dealing with developing novel approaches to modelling and simulating biological systems (such as quantum, bio-inspired, chemical, etc. computing) to initiate development of novel bio- and nature-inspired computation paradigms. The workshop aims to exchange ideas, promote fruitful discussions, and initiate development on novel paradigms, methodologies, and architectures for unconventional computations as well as for applications of computational intelligence in the wide and heterogeneous fields of biology, biomechanics, medicine and health care. It can provide to take a critical glance at the design of novel and emergent computing systems to point out failures and shortcomings of both theoretical and experimental approaches.
