    ***************************************************************************** ACRI 2018 - Call for Papers

    13th International Conference on CELLULAR AUTOMATA FOR RESEARCH AND INDUSTRY

    September 17 - 21, 2018

    Villa del Grumello - Lake Como School Of Advanced Studies
    Como, Italy


    The conference is organised by the University of Milano-Bicocca *****************************************************************************


    Cellular Automata (CA) present a very powerful approach for the study of complex emergent phenomena built up out of many simple local interactions. Because of this, CA are very popular for studying real applications and
    have generated a great deal of interest both in academia and industry
    by researchers working in different scientific fields and dealing with theoretical aspects as well as practical applications.

    Since its first edition in 1994, the ACRI conference focused on challenging problems and new research on Cellular Automata (CA). Its primary goal is
    to offer both scientists and engineers in academies and industries an opportunity to enforce international collaborations on Cellular Automata
    and express their views on current trends, challenges, and state-of-the art solutions to various problems in several scientific fields:
    biology, computer science, chemistry, ecology, economy, engineering, geology, medicine, physics, sociology, etc.

    This 13th edition of ACRI Conference aims at enlarging the classical topics
    to include other areas related to or extending Cellular Automata. This will offer a larger community the opportunity to discuss their work in various related fields as for instance: complex networks, games on networks, bio-inspired computing, cryptography, biological network modelling,
    multiagent models, etc.

    Papers presenting original and unpublished research on theoretical and computational aspects of Cellular Automata as well as applications of
    CA-based models are sought/welcomed.

    Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
    - Tools and Theory: new algorithms based on CA, theory of computation,
    CA environments,
    - Theoretical aspects of CA: algebraic, dynamics, and topological issues
    - Dynamical Complex Systems and Emergent Phenomena,
    - Image Processing and Pattern Recognition,
    - Natural Computing and Unconventional Computing,
    - Quantum Cellular Automata,
    - Complex Networks, Games on Networks,
    - Bio-Inspired Computing,
    - Cryptography,
    - Lattice Gas and Lattice Boltzmann Models,
    - Agent-Based Models,
    - Mathematical Systems Theory: analysis, optimization and control,
    - Biological and Ecological Modelling: metabolic networks, species evolution,
    immune systems, contamination processes, infectious diseases, biodiversity,
    - Modelling of Physical or Chemical Systems: hydrodynamics, reaction diffusion,
    systems, complex flows,
    - Environmental Modelling: Pollution models, biomass evolution, desertification,
    - Socio-Economical Models: vehicular and pedestrian traffic, urbanism, market.


    The ACRI-2018 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Workshops Program. Workshops will provide an informal setting where participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas.
    In the past editions of ACRI the number of ACRI Workshops and satellite Workshop
    has grown: C&CA (Crowds & Cellular Automata), T&CA (Traffic & Cellular Automata), ACA (Asynchronous Cellular Automata and Asynchronous Discrete Models),
    CACGI (Cellular Automata of Cancer Growth and Invasion), IWNC (International Workshop of Natural Computing), ABSim&CA (Agent-Based Simulation & Cellular Automata).
    Details on how to send Workshop proposals will be announced soon.


    The Conference will take place at the Villa del Grumello (Como, ITALY), within the Como Lake School of Advanced Studies, see http://www.villadelgrumello.it . Villa del Grumello is looking the first basin of Como Lake. It is framed by century-old trees and enchants its visitors with its delicate atmospheres
    and its harmonious setting. Driving force of the development of the Lariano area, Villa del Grumello is a reference point for culture, science and the business community.

    Authors are invited to submit papers of no more than 10 pages
    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 http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors)
    and submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). Papers authored or
    co-authored by PC members are also welcome.


    Accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by
    Springer in the LNCS series.


    As for the previous editions, we are planning special issues of journals like Natural Computing (already confirmed) and Journal of Cellular Automata for
    the publication of selected papers from the conference and workshops.
