		C&CA-2006

	1st International Workshop on
  	 CROWDS & CELLULAR AUTOMATA
			at

	7th International Conference
	   on Cellular Automata for
	Research and Industry (ACRI 2006)

	University of Perpignan (France)
		19-20, September 2006

	Call for extended abstracts

Cellular Automata (CA) models have been recently a good source of
scientific knowledge to face the study and simulation of crowd dynamics
behavior. It is an intrinsic multidisciplinary research area, and the
current literature involving CA and agent-based models is disseminated
in a vast range of conferences proceedings, journals and books belonging
to different disciplines --- from physics to urban planning and psychology.

The main goal of this Workshop is to enable meeting for researchers
coming from different disciplines and using Cellular Automata for
modeling and simulation of the dynamical behavior of the crowds,
societies and worlds.

Topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

     * crowd dynamics
     * pedestrian behavior
     * traffic models
     * urban planning
     * structural social self-organization
     * voting
     * opinion formation
     * market dynamics
     * trading
     * collective beliefs
     * rumors
     * firm dynamics
     * knowledge diffusion
     * emotional contagion
     * warfare
     * competition
     * religion
     * coalitions
     * social structures
     * politics
     * would-be worlds

We invite submissions where cellular automata are employed as simulation
tools or theoretical and computational paradigms.

Important Dates:

Paper submission:              April 28^th 2006
Notification of acceptance:    June 1^st 2006
Camera ready version:          June 26^th 2006
