4th Automata, Theory and Applications Workshop (*A-CSC’12/*A-PDPTA)
The 2012 International Conference on Scientific Computing (CSC'12)
The 2012 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'12)
July 16-19, 2012, Las Vegas, USA
Extended Deadline: March 31, 2012
Dear Professionals and Research Students working in areas involving both theory and application fields of computer science, we are inviting you to join us for our:
4th Automata, Theory and Applications Workshop (formerly, Cellular Automata, Theory and Applications Workshop) within The 2012 International Conference on Scientific Computing (CSC'12: July 16-19, 2012, Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, USA),
one of 22 conferences at WORLDCOMP'12 - The 2012 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing.
From this year, the workshop is also part of The 2012 International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Processing Techniques and Applications (PDPTA'12)
Chairs of Session: Lou D'Alotto*, J.F. Nystrom**, William Spataro***
* York College/CUNY and The CUNY Graduate Center, New York, USA, email@example.com
**Ferris State University, Michigan, USA, JamesNystrom@ferris.edu
***University of Calabria, Italy, firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for the full paper submission is March 31, 2012.
Following the success of our previous Cellular Automata, Theory and Applications Workshop, which included exciting keynotes addressed from leading Cellular Automata researchers, Prof. Dr. Peter Sloot, and by Prof. Yaroslav D. Sergeyev, father of the Infinity Computer, we are glad to invite you to our fourth edition. From this year, topics of the Workshop have been extended to the more general Automata theme, including both theoretical and applicative aspects of this important computer science field.
The main objective of this Workshop, organized within the 2012 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP'12), is to offer scientists, researchers and engineers an opportunity to express and confront their views on trends, challenges, and state-of-the art in both theory and diverse application fields such as engineering, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, medicine, ecology, sociology, traffic control, economy, etc.
Distinguished papers will be published in a special issue of the Journal of SuperComputing, a leading ISI research journal publishing theoretical, practical, tutorial and survey papers on all aspects of supercomputing.
Please see other publication details below.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- cellular automata
• systems modeling
• other applications
- finite automata
- formal language theory
- theoretical issues on automata theory
- parallel implementations
Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft papers directly to the Workshop Chairs (see emails above). Please include “*A – CSC’12” (or *A - PDPTA'12) in the email subject header. Submissions must be received by March 31, 2012 and they must be in either MS doc (not docx) or pdf formats (about 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their papers for publication.) The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each author. The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the content of the paper. Finally, the name of the conference (CSC'12) must be stated on the first page.
March 31, 2012: Submission of papers (about 5 to 7 pages)
April 20, 2012: Notification of decision
May 7, 2012: Final papers + Copyright + Registration
July 16-19, 2012: The 2012 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP'12 - 22 joint conferences)
CATEGORIES OF ACCEPTED PAPERS:
(RRP) Regular Research Papers: 7-page IEEE-style publication in the proceedings. 20-minute formal presentation slot.
(RRR) Regular Research Reports: 7-page IEEE-style publication in the proceedings. Presentation in an informal setting (during Discussion Sessions.) Typically, those authors with language difficulties prefer this mode of presentation.
(SRP) Short Research Papers: 4-page IEEE-style publication in the proceedings. Presentation in an informal setting (during Discussion Sessions.) Same presentation mode as RRR papers.
(PST) Posters 1-page IEEE-style publication in the proceedings. Presentation in an informal setting (during Discussion Sessions.
All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (they will also be available on the web). The proceedings will be processed for indexing into science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each paper. These science citation databases include: Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering and Technology, CiteSeerX citation index, Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic Search, and other science databases. Like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) will appear in journals and edited research books (publishers include: Springer, Elsevier, ...).
The 4th Automata, Theory and Applications Workshop, together with all other WORLDCOMP Workshops and Conferences, will be held at Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (with any overflows at other near-by hotels). This is a mega hotel with excellent conference facilities and over 3,000 rooms. It is minutes from the airport with 24-hour shuttle service to and from the airport. This hotel has many recreational attractions, including: waterfalls, spa, pools, sunning decks, Easy River, wave pool, nightly shows, many restaurants, etc. The negotiated room rate for conference attendees is very reasonable.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Las Vegas!
