This will be the fourth of the Turing Days organised by the Department of Computer Science at Istanbul Bilgi University. Turing Days in Istanbul brings speakers to discuss the theory of computation and some of its implementations.
Our activity is named in memory of Alan Mathison Turing, the British mathematician (and, more famously, cryptologist) who was one of the founders of computational theory.
The theme of the "Turing Days' 05" is DNA Computing. The leading scientists in the field will give introductory seminars for general audiance. Also, they will talk over more sophisticated topics regarding their specific research interests.
Biomolecular computing has emerged as an interdisciplinary field that draws together chemistry, computer science, mathematics, molecular biology, and physics. Our knowledge of DNA nanotechnology and biomolecular computing increases dramatically with every passing year. This international meeting on DNA Based Computers is going to be a forum where scientists with different backgrounds, yet sharing a common interest in biomolecular computing meet and share their results.
Anybody interested in, or wanting to learn about DNA Computing is welcomed!
If you want to be an active participant at the conference, we ask you to send a message to bulent AT cs bilgi edu tr including a very short summary of what you intend to talk about. If you want to, you can also send an ordinary 6-10 pages long paper, to be included in the Conference Proceeding, provided we get the material not later than March 15.
Dr. Bernard Yurke (Bell Labs, New Jersey, USA)
Prof. Dr. Carlos Martin Vide (Rovira i Virgili University, Tarragona, Spain)
Prof. Dr. Ehud Shapiro (Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel)
Prof. Dr. Milan Stojanovic (Columbia University, New York, USA)
Prof. Dr. Nadrian C. Seeman (New York University, New York, USA)
Prof. Dr. Tom Head (Binghamton University, New York, USA)
We hope that this meeting will continue to contribute in getting a wider view of computation theory...
