11th International conference on cellular automata for research and industry - ACRI 2014

Krakow, Poland, September 22-25, 2014

Cellular automata (CA) present a very powerful approach to the study of spatio-temporal systems where complex phenomena build up out of many simple local interactions. They account often for real phenomena or solutions of problems, whose high complexity could unlikely be formalised in different contexts. Furthermore parallelism and locality features of CA allow a straightforward and extremely easy parallelisation, therefore an immediate implementation on parallel computing resources. These characteristics of the CA research resulted in the formation of interdisciplinary research teams. These teams produce remarkable research results and attract scientists from different fields. The main goal of the 10th edition of ACRI 2012 Conference (Cellular Automata for Research and Industry) is to offer both scientists and engineers in academies and industries an opportunity to express and discuss their views on current trends, challenges, and state-of-the art solutions to various problems in the fields of arts, biology, chemistry, communication, cultural heritage, ecology, economy, geology, engineering, medicine, physics, sociology, traffic control, etc.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest about CA and CA-based models and systems include but are not limited to:

  • Algebraic properties and generalization
  • Complex systems
  • Computational complexity
  • Dynamical systems
  • Hardware circuits, architectures, systems and applications
  • Modeling of biological systems
  • Modeling of physical or chemical systems
  • Modeling of ecological and environmental systems
  • Image Processing and pattern recognition
  • Natural Computing
  • Quantum Cellular Automata
  • Parallelism


Authors are invited to submit papers presenting their original and unpublished research. Papers should not exceed 10 pages and should be formatted according to the usual LNCS article style ( Details on the electronic submission procedure is provided through the website of the conference (


A volume of proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will be available by the time of the conference. After the conference, refereed volumes of selected proceedings containing extended papers will be organized as special issues of ISI international journals like Journal of Cellular Automata.

Conference location

ACRI2014 will be held at AGH University of Science and Technology, Kraków, Poland.

AGH University of Science and Technology is one of the leading technical universities in Poland. The AGH University was established in 1919, serves the science and industry through education, as well as research and development. Krakow is the second largest city in Poland, known as “cultural capital of Poland” and “a city of tradition” and a city of a unique medieval architecture. Krakow is registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List and awarded the title of the European Capital of Culture in 2000. Krakow as such a very popular touristic destination is served by convenient air, road and rail connections.
