AUTOMATA 2019 : 25th International Workshop on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems
Call For Papers
Dear colleagues and friends,
Please find below the call for papers for the 25th International Workshop on Cellular Automata (CA) and Discrete Complex Systems (DCS), AUTOMATA 2019.
AUTOMATA 2019 is the official annual event of IFIP WG 1.5: this is 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 (IFIP).
June 26th-28th, University of Guadalajara, Guadalajara, Mexico.
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.
The workshop is organized by the Department of Mathematics of University Center of Exact Sciences and Engineering of the University of Guadalajara, in the city of Guadalajara, Mexico.
* Topics (not exhaustive):
dynamic, topological, ergodic and algebraic aspects of Cas and DCSs
algorithmic and complexity issues
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.
Accepted full papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Exploratory papers will not be included in the LNCS proceedings, but in local proceedings that will be distributed at the workshop.
* Special issue
A special issue, collecting extended and improved versions of some selected papers presented at the conference, will be published in Natural Computing. Depending on the number of papers presented at the conference, a second special issue will be arranged in Complex Systems.
* Invited speakers:
Pablo Arrighi (Aix-Marseille University and LIF de Marseille, France)
Hector Zenil (SciLifeLab and Karolinska Institute, Sweden)
Tullio Ceccherini-Silberstein (University of Sannio, Italy)

* Silver Jubilee:
AUTOMATA 2019 will be the Silver Jubilee of the event, so the programme will reflect this special occasion.
