About the Conference

AUTOMATA 2015 is the twenty-first workshop in a series of events established in 1995. These workshops aim:

  • To establish and maintain a permanent, international, multidisciplinary forum for the collaboration of researchers in the field of Cellular Automata (CA) and Discrete Complex Systems (DCS).
  • To provide a platform for presenting and discussing new ideas and results.
  • To support the development of theory and applications of CA and DCS (e.g. parallel computing, physics, biology, social sciences, and others) as long as fundamental aspects and their relations are concerned.
  • To identify and study within an inter- and multidisciplinary context, the important fundamental aspects, concepts, notions and problems concerning CA and DCS.

In the recent years the workshop took place in Himeji, Japan in 2014, Gießen, Germany in 2013 and La Marana, France in 2012.
