Call For Papers


AUTOMATA is the official annual event of IFIP WG 1.5, the Working Group
5 (on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems) of the Technical
Committee 1 (on Foundations of Computer Science) of the International
Federation for Information Processing.

July 12th-14th 2021,
CIRM, Marseille, France

* Aims:
The purpose of this conference is to highlight the major advances in the
field and the development of new tools, to support the development of
theory and applications of CA and DCS, and to identify and study within
an inter- and multidisciplinary context the important fundamental
aspects, concepts, notions and problems concerning CA and DCS.

* Place:
The workshop will take place in CIRM, Marseille, at the gates of the
Parc National des Calanques, accessible by metro and bus from Marseille
main station and harbor.

* Topics (not exhaustive):
dynamical, topological, ergodic and algebraic aspects of CAs and DCSs
algorithmic and complexity issues
emergent properties
formal languages
symbolic dynamics
models of parallelism and distributed systems
synchronous versus asynchronous models
phenomenological descriptions and scientific modelling
applications of CAs and DCSs

* Paper categories
There are two categories of submission: full papers and exploratory
papers. Full papers are meant to report more complete and denser
research, while exploratory papers are meant to be short reports of
recent discoveries, work-in-progress or partial results. Submissions of
full papers are refereed and selected by the program committee.
Exploratory papers go through a less rigorous evaluation process. All
accepted papers must be presented at the conference, either in presence,
or virtually.

Full papers will be published in the OASIcs series by Schloss Dagstuhl.
Exploratory papers will be published in local proceedings uploaded to HAL.
A special issue, collecting extended and improved versions of selected
papers presented at the conference, will be published in a journal.

* Invited speakers:
Maximilien Gadouleau (Durham University, UK)
Luca Priogioniero (Università di Milano Statale, Italy)
Siamak Taati (American University of Beirut, Lebanon)
Ilkka Törmä (University of Turku, Finland)

* Important dates:
Submission deadline full papers: March 4th
Notification of acceptance full papers: April 13th
Final version full papers: April 26th

Submission deadline exploratory papers: May 5th
Notification of acceptance exploratory papers: May 19th
Final versions of exploratory papers: May 26th

Early registration (room booking guaranteed): May 24th
Final registration deadline (room booking unsure): July 5th

* Submissions:
Authors are invited to submit papers of no more than 12 pages (for full
papers) or 8 pages (for exploratory papers) via EasyChair. See the
submission page for details :

* Joint event:
On July 14th-16th will follow the Workshop on Automata Networks at the
same place; the intersection, July 14th will be the opportunity to
celebrate Eric Goles's 70th birthday.
