Automata 2010 - 16th Intl. Workshop on CA and DCS

Cover Page

This volume contains the selected "full" papers presented at AUTOMATA 2010, the 16th inter- national workshop on cellular automata and discrete complex systems. The workshop was held on June 14-16, 2010, at the LORIA laboratory in Nancy, France. AUTOMATA is an annual workshop on the fundamental aspects of cellular automata and related discrete dynamical sys- tems. The spirit of the workshop is to foster collaborations and exchanges between researchers on these areas. The workshop series was started in 1995 by members of the Working Group 1.5 of IFIP, the International Federation for Information Processing. The program committee consisted of 25 international experts on cellular automata and related models, and the selection was based on 2-4 peer reviews on each paper. Papers in this volume represent a rich sample of current research topics on cellular automata and related models. The papers include theoretical studies of the classical cellular automata model, but also many investigations into various variants and generalizations of the basic concept. The versatile nature and the flexibility of the model is evident from the presented papers, making it a rich source of new research problems for scientists representing a variety of disciplines.

As the editors of these proceedings, we thank all contributors to the scientific program of the workshop. We are especially indebted to the invited speakers and the authors of the contributed papers. We would also like to thank the members of the Program Committee and the external reviewers of the papers.
