About ACRI

Cellular Automata present a very powerful approach to the study of spatio-temporal systems where complex phenomena build up out of many simple local interactions.

The ACRI conference has been traditionally focused on challenging problems and new research not only in theoretical but application aspects of cellular automata, including cellular automata tools and computational sciences. It is also concerned with applications and solutions of problems from the fields of physics, engineering, environment science, social science and life sciences. Its primary goal is to discuss problems from a variety of scientific fields, to identify new issues and to enlarge the research fields of cellular automata. Since its inception, the ACRI conference has attracted an ever-growing community and has raised knowledge and interest in the study of cellular automata for both new entrants into the field as well as researchers already working on particular aspects of cellular automata.

The main goal of the 9th International Conference on Cellular Automata for Research and Industry (ACRI 2010) conference 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 biology, chemistry, ecology, economy, geology, mechanical engineering, medicine, physics, sociology, traffic control, etc.

The conference, which is organized by the University of Milano-Bicocca and which will take place in Ascoli Piceno on September 21-24 2010, is the ninth in a series of conferences inaugurated in 1994 in Rende, Italy, and followed by ACRI 1996 in Milan, Italy, ACRI 1998 in Trieste, Italy, ACRI 2000 in Karlsruhe, Germany, ACRI 2002 in Geneva, Switzerland, ACRI 2004 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, ACRI 2006 in Perpignan, France and ACRI 2008 in Yokohama, Japan.
