FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
Workshop on Cellular Automata
April 17-18, 1991
Centre for Scientific Computing
Cellular automata are spatially and temporally discrete dynamical systems
consisting of identical cells arranged in a lattice. The cells assume one
of a finite number of values and are updated according to a spatially
homogeneous local rule. These systems exhibit the prototypes of interactive
dynamics. Due to this rich spectrum of behavior they have applications
in a number of areas of science and engineering.
A workshop on cellular automata will be arranged at the Centre for
Scientific Computing (CSC) in Helsinki, Finland, on April 17-18, 1991.
Papers presenting new theoretical results, or experiences of using cellular
automata as modeling tools, are sought. Points of view can be general
mathematics (for example dynamical systems theory), computational science,
physics, or other natural sciences.
The main speakers are:
Per Bak, Department of Physics, Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA
Bruce M. Boghosian, Thinking Machines Corporation, Cambridge,
"A Survey of Lattice Gas and Lattice Boltzmann Methods for Hydrodynamics"
David Griffeath, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA
"Excitable Cellular Automata"
Clifford Pickover, IBM T.J. Watson Research Center, USA
"Visualization of Complex Phenomena"
These presentations will be organized as two 45 minute sessions each.
We are searching for short, 15-30 minute presentations. These can include
video, slide or computer demonstrations. We try to include as many
presentations as possible, but if this can't be arranged, some may be
included as posters. The presentations should be aimed to people with
general scientific background, and too much specialization should be
The registrations and submissions should be sent to the following address:

The organizers can make hotel reservations for participants, when needed.
The walking distance to hotel Dipoli is 10 minutes. The cost of a single
room is approx. 450 FIM for one night (ca. 120 USD).
Submissions should include the following information:
Title of presentation
Abstract (not much more than one page)
Duration of presentation (15-30 minutes)
Special equipment needed (slide, video equipment etc.)
The deadline for registration to the workshop is April 8, 1991. Abstracts
of submitted papers must be received before March 1, 1991. Authors of
submitted papers will be notified of acceptance or rejection.
The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the CSC Report Series,
and the deadline for the final papers will be announced later.
