We are an open Research Group who loves Cellular Automata.
In this page, you will find events related to Theory and Applications Cellular Automata (CAs), such as, discourse of lecture series, associated webinars and academic workshops, recent events and trends of research in CAs as well as links to materials related to cellular automata. Our objective is to help you enhance your knowledge about CAs, update you on the trending research topics and to initiate and encourage further discussions on them. If you are a research aspirant and wants to learn CA, feel free to explore and connect with us. If you are an experienced researcher in this field, we invide you to join us in this endeavor.Find Out More

First Asian Symposium on Cellular Automata Technology
March 03-05, 2022 (Online)
Cellular Automaton (CA), one of the most emergent areas in natural computing, is a paradigm of uniform fine-grained parallel computation which has been explored to understand complex systems by developing its model at the microscopic level. From the last three decades, CA as technology is being used to solve many real-life problems in the domain of VLSI (very large scale integration) design and test, pattern recognition and classification, cryptography, pseudo random pattern generation, in-memory computation, image processing, data compression, medical imaging, bioinformatics etc. Since long, India along with other Asian countries has played a significant role in research on cellular automata (CAs): theory and applications. Many of these researchers work in the domain of Cellular Automata Technology. However, there is no conference or symposium organized till date in India or anywhere in the world dedicated to this topic. Recently, during this ongoing time of pandemic, some of the Indian researchers have come forward in creating a research group, Cellular Automata India where most of the CAs researchers and scientists from India as well as many renowned scientists from around the globe have joined. This time this platform has been extended to start a new series of symposiums as a meeting place of the international intelligentsia to share, review, discuss and collaborate on CAs. Target of this symposium is to promote fundamental research on automata theory and Cellular Automata Technology based unconventional design approaches for different emergent areas and challenges. It can also popularize research on unconventional computing among the academicians, scientists and engineers of Asian countries and promote international collaboration between Computer Scientists, Mathematicians and Technologists of Asia and the other parts of the world.
A cellular automaton is a collection of "colored " cells on a grid of specified shape that evolves through a number of discrete time steps according to a set of rules based on the states of neighboring cells.
They are far from the 'automata' of the Universe some think them to be. They dance the starry path and are sharpening their knowledge with every orbit of each positive thought travelled.
It is perhaps a little humbling to discover that we as humans are in effect computationally no more capable than cellular automata with very simple rules. But the Principle of Computational Equivalence also implies that the same is ultimately true of our whole universe. So while science has often made it seem that we as humans are somehow insignificant compared to the universe, the Principle of Computational Equivalence now shows that in a certain sense we are at the same level as it is. For the principle implies that what goes on inside us can ultimately achieve just the same level of computational sophistication as our whole universe.
This is the second year of internship program on Cellular Automata: Theory and Applications for the undergraduate students. This year the internship is more rigorously project based and the theory relevant to the
projects will be discussed in class.
Mode of Internship: Hybrid
