CALL FOR PAPERS: 23rd International Workshop on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems, June 7 - 9, 2017, Milan, ITALY
SCOPE Papers presenting original and unpublished research on all fundamental aspects of cellular automata, affine/correlated models of automata (such as automata networks, finite automata over finite/infinite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 IMPORTANT DATES 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 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 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.

Porreca SUBMISSION 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 at https://easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?key=48540400.xCiJVUH7a5pVV9R8 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limits may be included as an appendix and will be considered at the committee's discretion (note that appendices will not be published in the proceedings).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 https://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors?SGWID=0-40209-0-0-0) 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. PROCEEDINGS 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. JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE It is planned that extended version of some selected papers will be considered for publication in special issues of an international renown journal (Information & Computation, Theoretical Computer Science, ...).
