Call For Papers

AUTOMATA 2023 - First Call for Papers

29th International Workshop on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex

August 30 - September 1, 2023

University of Trieste
Trieste, Italy


Papers presenting original and unpublished research on all fundamental
aspects of cellular automata (CA), affine/correlated models of automata
(such as automata networks, finite automata over finite/infinite words,
picture languages), and related discrete complex systems (DCS) are sought.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Dynamic, topological, ergodic, algebraic and combinatorial aspects
- Algorithmic, computability and complexity issues
- Information-theoretic aspects
- Emergent properties
- Formal languages
- Symbolic dynamics and connections to continuous systems
- Tilings, rewriting and substitution systems
- Computability theory
- Models of parallelism and distributed systems
- Asynchronous versus asynchronous models
- Applications CA and DCS
- CA in machine and deep learning


- Submission deadline (full papers): April 21, 2023
- Notification (full papers): June 9, 2023
- Camera ready (full papers): June 23, 2023
- Submission deadline (exploratory papers and extended abstracts): July 7, 2023
- Notification (exploratory papers and extended abstracts): July 14, 2023
- Camera ready (exploratory papers and extended abstracts): July 28, 2023
- AUTOMATA 2023: August 30 - September 1, 2023


There are three categories of submission -- full papers, exploratory
papers and extended abstracts. Full papers are meant to report more
complete and denser research, while the later submission deadline for
exploratory papers and extended abstract allows quick reporting of
recent discoveries, work-in-progress and/or partial
results. Submissions in the full paper category are refereed and
selected by the program committee. Papers in the exploratory and
extended abstracts category go through a less rigorous evaluation
process. All accepted papers must be presented at the conference.

Authors are invited to submit papers of no more than 12 pages (for
full papers), 8 pages (for exploratory papers) or 4 pages (for
extended abstracts) via the EasyChair system at:

Submissions should contain original research that has not previously
been published. Concurrent submissions to other conferences/journals
are not allowed. Supplementary material that exceeds the above
mentioned page limits may be included as an appendix and will be
considered at the committee's discretion (note that appendices will
not be published in the proceedings). Submission must be formatted in
LaTeX using the LNCS format (see
and submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). Papers authored or
co-authored by PC members are also welcome and will follow a specific
evaluation process.


Accepted full papers will appear in the proceedings published by
Springer in the IFIP LNCS Series. Exploratory papers and extended
abstracts will not be included in the LNCS proceedings, but will be
published as local proceedings and uploaded on an open access repository.


It is planned that extended version of some selected papers will be
considered for publication in special issues of an international
renown journal.
