**Book Description**
This book offers advanced parallel and distributed algorithms and experimental laboratory prototypes of unconventional shortest path solvers. In addition, it presents novel and unique algorithms of solving shortest problems in massively parallel cellular automaton machines. The shortest path problem is a fundamental and classical problem in graph theory and computer science and is frequently applied in the contexts of transport and logistics, telecommunication networks, virtual reality and gaming, geometry, and social networks analysis. Software implementations include distance-vector algorithms for distributed path computation in dynamics networks, parallel solutions of the constrained shortest path problem, and application of the shortest path solutions in gathering robotic swarms. Massively parallel algorithms utilise cellular automata, where a shortest path is computed either via matrix multiplication in automaton arrays, or via the representation of data graphs in automaton lattices and using the propagation of wave-like patterns. Unconventional shortest path solvers are presented in computer models of foraging behaviour and protoplasmic network optimisation by the slime mould Physarum polycephalum and fluidic devices, while experimental laboratory prototypes of path solvers using chemical media, flows and droplets, and electrical current are also highlighted. The book will be a pleasure to explore for readers from all walks of life, from undergraduate students to university professors, from mathematicians, computers scientists and engineers to chemists and biologists.

**Book Description**
Did you know that computation can be implemented with cytoskeleton networks, chemical reactions, liquid marbles, plants, polymers and dozens of other living and inanimate substrates? Do you know what is reversible computing or a DNA microscopy? Are you aware that randomness aids computation? Would you like to make logical circuits from enzymatic reactions? Have you ever tried to implement digital logic with Minecraft? Do you know that eroding sandstones can compute too?This volume reviews most of the key attempts in coming up with an alternative way of computation. In doing so, the authors show that we do not need computers to compute and we do not need computation to infer. It invites readers to rethink the computer and computing, and appeals to computer scientists, mathematicians, physicists and philosophers. The topics are presented in a lively and easily accessible manner and make for ideal supplementary reading across a broad range of subjects.

**Book Description**
The two-volume set LNAI 11431 and 11432 constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 11th Asian Conference on Intelligent Information and Database Systems, ACIIDS 2019, held in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, in April 2019. The total of 124 full papers accepted for publication in these proceedings were carefully reviewed and selected from 309 submissions. The papers of the first volume are organized in the following topical sections: knowledge engineering and semantic web; text processing and information retrieval; machine learning and data mining; decision support and control systems; computer vision techniques; and databases and intelligent information systems. The papers of the second volume are divided into these topical sections: collective intelligence for service innovation, technology management, E-learning, and fuzzy intelligent systems; data structures modelling for knowledge representation; advanced data mining techniques and applications; intelligent information systems; intelligent methods and artificial intelligence for biomedical decision support systems; intelligent and contextual systems; intelligent systems and algorithms in information sciences; intelligent supply chains and e-commerce; sensor networks and Internet of Things; analysis of image, video, movements and brain intelligence in life sciences; and computer vision and intelligent systems.
