The workshop is co-located with FCT 2007, the 16th International Symposium on Fundamentals of Computational Theory, held in Budapest, Hungary on August 27- 30, 2007. It will take place in Budapest, immediately after FCT 2007.

The aim of the workshop is to present novel ideas connecting cellular and molecular computing with the more classical areas of automata theory. In this framework, the extended notion of "automaton" includes interaction with an environment or other automata, uses resources represented by multisets, and can have new features inspired by "natural computing". Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the behavioral and structural properties of automaton-like computational models based on different types of cellular and molecular computing systems, such as, for example, membrane systems, networks of bio-inspired language processors, or test-tube systems.
