Workshop21-CAAA

The 6th International Workshop on 
Cellular Automata Algorithms & Architectures
(CAAA 2020)


CALL FOR PAPERS & PARTICIPATION

As part of 
The 18th International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2020)
10 - 14 December 2020
Barcelona, Spain (Virtual/Online event)


 Paper Submission Deadline: 02 October 2020 - Extended

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters



SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
This sixth 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 a global forum for reporting on the recent developments and 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 CAAA track strives to gather all aspects addressed in the main subjects of the HPCS conference, but which lie at the intersections of HPC, M&S, and CA. In other words, topics of interest include all aspects of Cellular Automata, but in the context of High Performance Computing and Modeling & Simulation. Of particular interest would be works that employ HPC and cellular automata as computational models for mathematical, physical, chemical, biological, social and engineering systems. 

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
  • Cellular Automata in the design of IoT and 5G based Technologies
  • 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

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS 
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Cellular Automata Algorithms & Architectures. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere until it appears in HPCS proceedings, in the case of acceptance, or notified otherwiseSubmission can be 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), please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 4 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.
-  Poster papers and Posters (please refer to http://hpcs2020.cisedu.info/1-call-for-papers-and-participation/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's paper submission site at  https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=caaa2020. Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 

Conference Policies
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 soundness, presentation, language, 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 (virtually) the HPCS 2020 conference to present the paper at the Symposium as scheduled. By submitting the paper to the HPCS conference, all authors agree to abide by all HPCS conference paper submission, publication and presentation policies as well as following ethical and professional codes of conduct, including those of the professional co-sponsoring organizations. For more information, please refer to the Authors Info and Registration Info pages

Proceedings
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2020 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 or ACM Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly. 

SPECIAL ISSUE
Plans are underway to have the best papers, in extended version, selected for possible publication in a reputable journal as special issue. Detailed information will soon be announced and will be made available on the conference website. 

If you have any questions about paper submission or the Workshop, please contact the Workshop's organizers.
