Digital Transformation & Global Society DTGS 2019

DTGS is an emerging international academic forum for the interdisciplinary Internet Studies field. The mission of the conference is to provide a collaborative platform for researchers and experts to discuss the transformative impact of digital technologies on the way we communicate, work and live.

The event is jointly organized by the ITMO University and the National Research University Higher School of Economics (St. Petersburg Campus), both being the leading universities, globally known for their research in information technologies, communication and social sciences.

25th International Workshop on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems

The 25th International Workshop on Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems AUTOMATA 2019 will take place on June 26-28 in Guadalajara, Mexico.   Proceedings Accepted full papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. About the Conference AUTOMATA 2019 is the twenty-fifth workshop in a series of events established in 1995. These workshops aim:

  • To establish and maintain a permanent, international, multidisciplinary forum for the collaboration of researchers in the field of Cellular Automata (CA) and Discrete Complex Systems (DCS).
  • To provide a platform for presenting and discussing new ideas and results.
  • To support the development of theory and applications of CA and DCS (e.g. parallel computing, physics, biology, social sciences, and others) as long as fundamental aspects and their relations are concerned.
  • To identify and study within an inter- and multidisciplinary context, the important fundamental aspects, concepts, notions and problems concerning CA and DCS.



Swarm Robotics – Pushing the state of the art

Swarm robotics is the domain of robotics that deals with large groups of robots that coordinately and cooperatively accomplish a task.
Inspired by natural self-organising systems like ant colonies, fish schools or bird flocks, the goal of swarm robotics research is to deploy complex robotics systems that present robustness to faults, scalability to different group sizes, flexibility of the displayed behaviour and adaptivity to environmental changes.
The problems faced by swarm robotics concerns mainly the analysis of complex systems formed by a multitude of interacting units, the design of individual level rules leading to desired collective behaviours, and the application of the lessons learned in lab research to real-world domains. The workshop will discuss cutting-edge research in all these directions thanks to a great assembly of invited speakers, and will represent a unique place where to trace the future of this research field beyond the state of the art.
