MFCS'98 Workshop on Cellular Automata

A Satellite Workshop to MFCS'98

August 25-27, 1998, Brno, Czech Republic


The Aim Cellular Automata have attracted a lot of attention recently. Progress has been made in several areas and new topics have been brought up for further research. The aim of the workshop is to allow for an exchange of ideas, to highlight new approaches and results (as well as problems), and to present them to a broader audience in the MFCS/CSL'98 environment.


Topics Suggested topics of interest include (but are not limited to): cellular automata as models of parallelism, computational complexity of cellular automata, cellular automata as dynamical systems, cellular automata as complex systems, cellular automata models for real phenomena (in physics, biology, etc.), algebraic properties of cellular automata, cellular automata machines, generalizations of cellular automata, modelling interactive behaviour with cellular automata.



Committees


Paper
Submission
Authors are invited to send one copy of an extended abstract not exceeding ten pages to the PC chair. Electronic submissions in the form of a LaTeX (preferred) or postscript file are encouraged and can be sent to ca-mfcs98@ira.uka.de. Submissions are to be received before June 5, 1998. Authors will be notified of acceptance by June 29, 1998.


Talks The final list of all talks of the workshop is now available with links to postscript files of the papers (where available).

For more details please consult the program of MFCS.


Proceedings Preliminary proceedings in the form of a technical report of the University of Karlsruhe will be available at the workshop. The final version for it should be sent before August 1, 1998. The final form of publication of the accepted papers depends on their number and quality. Various possibilities are under consideration, including the publication as a special issue of a refereed journal.

The workshop will be organised at the same place as the federated CSL/MFCS'98 conference and care will be taken that participants of the workshop can attend invited talks of CSL/MFCS conferences.


Registration
