The 7th Workshop on Cellular Automata Algorithms & Architectures
CALL FOR PAPERS
As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2016)
July 18 – July 22, 2016
Paper Submission Deadline: April 14, 2016 - Extended
Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
This seventh edition of the International Workshop on Cellular Automata Algorithms & Architectures, henceforth denoted as "Workshop" and planned to be held in the framework of the International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation, provides an global forum for reporting on state-of-the-art in computational problems, techniques and solutions related to the implementation of cellular automata models and algorithms onto fine-grain and coarse-grain architectures. The six previous CAAA events were held in Amsterdam (2015), Bologna (2014), Helsinki (2013), Madrid (2012), Istanbul (2011) and Caen (2010).
This CAAA session strives to gather all aspects addressed in the main parts of the HPCS conference, but which lie at the intersection of the two areas. In other words, topics of interest include all aspects of Cellular Automata, but in the context of High Performance Computing and Simulation.
The CAAA Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
Cellular Automata Models & Algorithms
Local and Global Properties in Cellular Automata Networks
Local and Global Communications at Application Level
Local Neighborhood and Topology Awareness
Routing and Mobile Agents in Cellular Automata
Spatio-Temporal and Collision-based Computing Models
Synchronization and Related Problems
Fine-Grained Parallel Architectures and FPGA
Efficient Architectures and Implementations
Computational Problems in Large-Scale Models
Parallel Environments and Accelerators for Cellular Automata in HPC
Regular Graphs for Massive Interconnection Networks
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research papers on the above and other topics related to Cellular Automata Algorithms & Architectures. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column formatted pages per template, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2016.cisedu.info/1-call-for-papers/call-for-posters for posters submission details) will also be considered. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the workshop paper submission EasyChair site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=caaa2016. Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2016 conference to present the paper at the workshop.
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2016 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.
A planned special issue of the Journal Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience will be available for selected papers of the conference. Best papers will be invited to submit an extended version. Furthermore, a list of selected papers of this special session is planned to be published in a special issue of the "Journal of Cellular Automata".
If you have any questions about paper submission or the workshop, please contact the track organizers.
