The Third Special Session on
Cellular Automata Algorithms & Architectures
CALL FOR PAPERS
As part of
The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2012)
http://hpcs2012.cisedu.info or http://cisedu.us/rp/hpcs12
July 2 – July 6, 2012
Submission Deadline: March 06, 2012
Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters
SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
This third special session on Cellular Automata Algorithms & Architectures, planned to be held in the framework of the International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation, provides an global forum for reporting on 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.
This CAAA session strives to gather all aspects addressed in the main parts of the HPCS conference, but which lie at the intersection of the two areas. In other words, topics of interest include all aspects of Cellular Automata, but in the context of High Performance Computing and Simulation.
The Special Session 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
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 AUTHORS:
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research papers on the above and other topics related to Cellular Automata Algorithms & Architectures. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2012.cisedu.info/home/posters for the submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript via email to the special session organizers:
Dominique Désérable: Dominique.Deserable@insa-rennes.fr
Rolf Hoffmann: email@example.com
Genaro J. Martínez: firstname.lastname@example.org
Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2012 Conference web site. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be made available at the time of the meeting.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the special session, please contact the organizers.
A list of selected papers of this special session is planned to be published in a special issue of the "Journal of Cellular Automata".
