Motivations and Target Application Domain

Morphogenesis and (DS)² Dynamical Systems with a Dynamical Structure

  • We have advocate with many other the use of rewriting systems in systems biology.
    • This articles with G. Malcolm focuses on the modeling on regulatory networks: Rewriting Systems and the Modelling of Biological Systems. Comparative and Functional Genomics, 5:95-99, February 2004
    • This technical report (published later as a Chapter in a book), investiage the relationships between dynamical systems and rewriting system to go beyond Lindenmayer system.
  • Lindenmayer system is the success story of generative formalisms applied to the modeling of morphogenesis. Wonderfull work have been developped in this area by Przemek Prusinkiewicz. The Algorithmic Botany home page are a good starting point. The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants published in 1990 by Springer was a landmark and now hopefully available on-line.

Interaction-based Computing

Spatial Computing

The Spatial Computing Home Page

The last spatial computing workshop SCW'2012 was colocated with AAMAS. The proceedings are available here as a PDF file.

This workshop is a continuation of a series of workshops on spatial computing previously colocated with SASO. Previous editions of this workshop may be found at the following urls:

Two special issues of journals have been organized a workshop follow-up:

This series of event originate in a Dagsthul Seminar Computing Media and Languages for Space-Oriented Computation. The executive report introduces the first definition of SC.

J. Beal and co-authors have written a useful review chapter to appear as a chapter in book Formal and Practical Aspects of Domain-Specific Languages: Recent Developments that analyze and compare several spatial computing DSLs : Organizing the Aggregate: Languages for Spatial Computing
