10 - 12 August 2020, 26th International Workshop on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems (AUTOMATA 2020), Online

Date: 10 - 12 August 2020
Location: Online
Deadline: Wednesday 15 April 2020

As it is its tradition, *AUTOMATA 2020* will focus on the theory and application of cellular automata and discrete dynamical systems in connection to complexity theory and algorithmic information. There will be special sessions on *Automata in Deep Learning* and *Algorithmic Information Dynamics* with a particular interest in aspects of computability in causation and reprogrammability.

AUTOMATA 2020 is innovating on various fronts given the challenge of climate change we want to reduce the conference Carbon footprint through a virtual attendance option, and also by addressing the underrepresentation of young and minority groups in the field.

Submissions presenting original and unpublished research on all fundamental aspects of cellular automata and related discrete complex systems are being sought.

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 short reports 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 (in person or virtually) at the conference. Submissions should contain original research that has not previously been published.
