Call For Papers

Papers presenting original and unpublished research on all fundamental aspects of cellular automata (CA), affine/correlated models of automata (such as automata networks, finite automata over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) (such as Boolean networks, opinion dynamics, sandpile models) 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 synchronous models
Applications of CA and DCS
CA in machine and deep learning

This year we also encourage submission in the following topics:

Opinion dynamics
Membrane computing
Reaction networks
Token sliding on graphs
Social choice theory
Aggregation functions

Important Dates

Submission deadline (full papers): 29 March
Notification to authors (full papers): 26 April
Camera ready (full papers): 10 May

Submission deadline (exploratory papers and extended abstracts): 17 May
Notification to authors (exploratory papers and extended abstracts): 31 May
Camera ready (exploratory papers and extended abstracts): 07 June

Early registration deadline: 21 June
AUTOMATA 2024: 22 July – 24 July
Paper Categories

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.
Submission

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.

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). Papers authored or co-authored by PC members are also welcome and will follow a specific evaluation process.

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). Submission must be formatted in LaTeX using the LNCS format and submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF).

All papers are to be submitted via the EasyChair system. https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=automata2024
Proceedings

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.
Journal Special Issue

It is planned that extended version of some selected papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the journal Natural Computing
