The papers from the symposium specified above address issues connected with the extent to which a biocomputer could mimic a living organism and whether it is possible to design and fabricate such a biocomputer within the foreseeable future. The dream is to design a computer using carbon-based components as in living organisms, instead of silicon- based components as in existing computers, and thus emulate the sophisticated performance of the human brain. Contributions are from a diverse and multidisciplinary group--physicists, chemists, biologists, computer scientists, engineers.
