Mathematica (martin schneider)
               abstract: After stating that the universe may be programmed in - let's say 4 lines of Mathematica, Stephen Wolfram coined a new slogan: 'Mathematica - the way the world calculates'. This is a broad claim but Mathematica can definetly serve as a powerful tool to help us understand how the world works, so we can debug it :-) This tutorial provides you with hands-on information, and gives you an impression how simple it is to produce graphics, sounds, tools and even a computer virus in Mathematica.

Starlogo (konrad diwold)
               abstract: This intro explains historic as well as conceptual ideas behind Starlogo, a programming environment for massively parallel micro worlds. The starlogo world is tiled with rectanguar patches very much like a cellular automaton. On top of the patches turtles can move around. In contrary to the discreteness of the grid, turtle movements are continuous,both in distance and direction. Initialisiation and updating are controlled by an almighty observer. Each of those units run their instructions in parallel and can be assesed via the starlogo interface.

Osxlcau (genaro martinez)
               abstract: Osxlcau21 is a tool for visualizing the evolution of one dimensional CAs, with an emphasis on rule110 gliders. Inital conditions can either be based on a density function or entered directly via a string console. For analyzing glider interactions, all known gliders can be entered in the notation developed by Mathew Cook via a special interface. The user is also provided with control over coloring, so that it's easy to separate gliders from the background. The system is available for Openstep, osX and Windows and is freeware!
