Papers presenting original and unpublished research on all fundamental
aspects of cellular automata and related discrete complex systems are
sought. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): dynamics,
topological, ergodic and algebraic aspects, algorithmic and complexity
issues, emergent properties, formal language processing, symbolic
dynamics, models of parallelism and distributed systems,
phenomenological descriptions, scientific modeling and practical
applications. Papers authored or co-authored by PC members are welcome
and will follow a specific evaluation process.
There are two paper categories - full and exploratory contributions.
Full papers are meant to report more complete and denser research,
while the later submission deadline of exploratory papers allows quick
reporting of most recent discoveries, work-in-progress and/or partial
results. Papers in the full paper category are refereed and selected by
the program committee. Papers in the exploratory category go through a
less rigorous evaluation for suitability. Full papers receive a longer
time slot for presentation in the workshop.
Papers in the full paper category will be published in the LNCS series
of Springer and
the proceedings will be available at the conference venue.
Exploratory papers will be published in local proceedings and will be
also available at the conference. Authors of selected papers will be
invited to submit an extended and improved version of their
contribution to a special issue of the Journal of
and another international journal depending on
the number and the subject of the papers accepted.
Papers have a page limit of 14 pages (full paper category) or 8 pages
(exploratory paper category), they must be formatted in LaTeX using the
, and must be submitted in Portable Document Format
(PDF). Authors are invited to submit original papers using
. The submission may contain an appendix that exceeds the
page limit if the author wants to provide the PC with more details than
allowed by the strict paper limit. The appendix will not be published
in the proceedings. The papers must not have been submitted
simultaneously to other conferences with published proceedings. All
accepted papers must be presented at the conference.
