working group 14.5 we are inviting everyone
interested in cellular automata to a workshop taking place in Rauischholzhausen
(Germany) from March 25, 1996
to March 27, 1996
Topics of interest are all aspects of cellular automata, e.g.
recognition of formal languages, computational complexity, relations to other
computational models, generalizations of cellular automata, structure of
(classes of) cellular automata, cellular automata
as models for real phenomena.
We are planning to have three full days of activity in order to allow as long
talks and an as intensive exchange of ideas as possible.
If there is enough interest, a 'wild cat session' can be organized
where apparent (or feigned) difficult problems and surprising solutions can

the talks at the beginning of the workshop. Participants are therefore
urged to send their
summary until Friday, March 8, 1996
