Dear colleagues and friends,

Please find below the call for papers for the 25th International Workshop
on Cellular Automata (CA) and Discrete Complex Systems (DCS), AUTOMATA 2019.

AUTOMATA 2019 is the official annual event of IFIP WG 1.5
<http://www.iec.hiroshima-u.ac.jp/ifip15/>: this is the Working Group 5 (on
Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems), of the Technical Committee
1 (on Foundations of Computer Science), of the International Federation for
Information Processing (IFIP).

June 26th-28th,  University of Guadalajara, Guadalajara, Mexico.


* Aims:

The purpose of this conference is to highlight the major advances in the
field and the development of new tools, to support the development of
theory and applications of CA and DCS, and to identify and study within an
inter- and multidisciplinary context the important fundamental aspects,
concepts, notions and problems concerning CA and DCS.

* Venue:

The workshop is organized by the Department of Mathematics of University
Center of Exact Sciences and Engineering of the University of Guadalajara,
in the city of Guadalajara, Mexico.

* Topics (not exhaustive):

dynamic, topological, ergodic and algebraic aspects of Cas and DCSs
algorithmic and complexity issues
emergent properties
formal languages
symbolic dynamics
models of parallelism and distributed systems
synchronous versus asynchronous models
phenomenological descriptions and scientific modelling
applications of CAs and DCSs

* 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 exploratory papers are meant to be short reports of recent
discoveries, work-in-progress or partial results. Submissions of full
papers are refereed and selected by the program committee. Exploratory
papers go through a less rigorous evaluation process. All accepted papers
must be presented at the conference.

Accepted full papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Exploratory papers
will not be included in the LNCS proceedings, but in local proceedings that
will be distributed at the workshop.

* Special issue

A special issue, collecting extended and improved versions of some selected
papers presented at the conference, will be published in Natural Computing
<https://link.springer.com/journal/11047>. Depending on the number of
papers presented at the conference, a second special issue will be arranged
in Complex Systems <http://www.complex-systems.com/>.

* Invited speakers:

   - Pablo Arrighi (Aix-Marseille University and LIF de Marseille, France)
   - Hector Zenil (SciLifeLab and Karolinska Institute, Sweden)
   - Tullio Ceccherini-Silberstein (University of Sannio, Italy)

Final registration deadline: June 7th, 2019

* Submissions:

Authors are invited to submit papers of no more than 12 pages (for full
papers) or 8 pages (for exploratory papers) via EasyChair:


Submissions should contain original research that has not previously been
published. Submission must be formatted in LaTeX using the LNCS format
submitted in PDF. Papers authored or co-authored by PC members are also

* Silver Jubilee:

AUTOMATA 2019 will be the Silver Jubilee of the event, so the programme
will reflect this special occasion.
