Exploratory Papers of AUTOMATA 2023
This volume contains the exploratory papers and the extended abstracts accepted and presented at the 29th International Workshop on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems, AUTOMATA 2023, which was held in Trieste, Italy, on August 30 - September 1, 2023. The workshop was organized by the Department of Mathematics and Geosciences of the University of Trieste, and it hosted the annual meeting of the IFIP working group 1.5.
The current focus of AUTOMATA encompasses a wide range of aspects and features pertaining to cellular automata and discrete complex systems. While not exhaustive, the current topics include dynamics, topology, ergodicity, algebraic properties, algorithmic considerations, complexity analysis, emergence of properties, formal languages, symbolic dynamics, tilings, models of parallelism and distributed systems, timing schemes, synchronous and asynchronous models, phenomenological descriptions, scientific modeling, and practical applications.
Overall, AUTOMATA 2023 received 11 submissions in the exploratory track. Each paper was reviewed in single-blind mode by at least two program committee members. Following the review and discussion phases, the committee decided to accept 2 submissions as extended abstract and 8 submissions as exploratory papers, with 2 submissions later withdrawn by the authors. The remaining submissions are included in these proceedings volume and were presented at the workshop. We wish to thank all authors who submitted to the exploratory track of AUTOMATA 2023.
We are thankful to the program committee of AUTOMATA 2023, for its great help in reviewing and selecting the submitted papers. We further thank the members of the local organizing committee of AUTOMATA 2023, namely Giulia Bernardini, Giuliamaria Menara and Gloria Pietropolli. Finally, we are also grateful for the support by the Department of Mathematics and Geosciences and the University of Trieste.
