[Most items in the following list of topics for Theory and Applications of 
Models of Computation are too highly specialized and technical to be
within range of a majority of us, I suspect. But I find it worthwhile to look
through lists such as this to note points of contact between current 
theoretical interests in computer science and other fields. I note, for 
example work on automata, biology, gaming, cryptography, economics, 
learning, aesthetics, processes in nature, systems theory. I find the 
turns to biology, aesthetics and nature the most interesting -- because 
they seem at first the most adventurous. In principle computation is 
indefinitely extensible. But, I wonder, what happens to your view of 
the world when you view it through the lens of computing? Does 
it extend, select or distort your vision? --WM]

derandomization, PCPs, proof complexity, structural complexity]
computational game theory
computational logic
computational geometry
continuous and real computation
cryptography
data structures
design and analysis of algorithms
distributed algorithms
domain models [Assets, Price of Abstraction, frameworks]
fixed parameter tractability
geometric algorithms
graph algorithms
information and communication complexity
learning theory
memory hierarchy tradeoffs
model theory for computing [modal and temporal logics, specification,
verification, synthesis or automated software construction, aesthetics,
software behavior,
transformation of models]
natural computation
nature inspired computing
network algorithms
