This special issue contains a selection of papers presented at the “Third International Workshop on Asynchronous Cellular Automata and Asynchronous Discrete Models” (ACA 2014), held as a satellite workshop of the 11th International Conference on Cellular Automata for Research and Industry (ACRI 2014) in Krakow (Poland) in September 2014. Six papers were selected and, after an additional review process, five of them have been included in this special issue. They are now presented in an extended and improved form with respect to the already refereed workshop version that appeared in the proceedings of the ACRI 2014 conference.

The ACA workshop is devoted to the theme of asynchrony, a hot topic, inside Cellular Automata and other Discrete Models as, for instance, Boolean Networks. Cellular Automata are a well-known formal tool for modeling complex systems; they are considered in many scientific fields and industrial applications. Synchronicity is one of the main features of Cellular...
