heterotic computing special issue

Over the last year or so, my coeditors and I have been preparing a special issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A, on the topic of heterotic computing, the combining of two or more computational substrates to get interesting computational properties.

The issue has just been published.  Massive thanks to the journal staff: it has been a pleasure to work with them (even when they were nagging us to do things :-)

We have written an introduction to the issue, which you can read online:

     Viv Kendon, Angelika Sebald, Susan Stepney
     Heterotic computing: exploiting hybrid computational devices
     Phil. Trans. R. Soc. A 2015 373 20150091; doi: 10.1098/rsta.2015.0091.

We also have a paper of our own in the issue:

     Viv Kendon, Angelika Sebald, Susan Stepney
     Heterotic computing: past, present and future
     Phil. Trans. R. Soc. A 2015 373 20140225; doi: 10.1098/rsta.2014.0225.

You will need a journal subscription to read that one, until the open access embargo period is up.  (btw, the journal arranged a separate anonymous peer review of our paper: we didn't organise it ourselves!)

If you want to find out more about the genesis of the special issue, there is also a blog post at the Royal Society publishing blog,
