AUTOMATA 2017 – Preliminary Call for Papers

23rd International Workshop on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems

June 7 – 9, 2017

University of Milano-Bicocca

Milan, Italy



Papers presenting original and unpublished research on all fundamental

aspects of cellular automata, affine/correlated models of automata

(such as automata networks, finite automata over finite/infinite words,

picture languages), 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 languages

– symbolic dynamics

– tilings

– models of parallelism and distributed systems

– synchronous versus asynchronous models

– phenomenological descriptions and scientific modelling

– practical applications


Submission deadline: February 8, 2017

Notification of acceptance: March 15, 2017

Final versions: March 22, 2017

Submission deadline for exploratory papers: May 3, 2017

Notification of acceptance for exploratory papers: May 10, 2017

AUTOMATA 2017: June 7-9, 2017


There are two categories of submission – full papers and exploratory

papers. Full papers are meant to report more complete and denser research,

while the later submission deadline for exploratory papers 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 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) or 8 pages (for exploratory papers) via the

EasyChair system.

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the committee\’s discretion (note that appendices will not be published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 LNCS series.

Exploratory papers will not be included in the LNCS proceedings.


It is planned that extended version of some selected papers will be

considered for publication in special issues of an international

reknown journal.
