1st International Conference on Language and Automata Theory and Applications
March 29 - April 4, 2007
LATA 2007 intends to become a major yearly conference in theoretical computer science and its applications. As linked to the International PhD School in Formal Languages and Applications that is being developed at the host institute since 2001, it will reserve significant room for young computer scientists at the beginning of their career. LATA 2007 will aim at attracting scholars from both classical theory fields and application areas (bioinformatics, systems biology, language technology, artificial intelligence, etc.).
Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:
- words, languages and automata
- grammars (Chomsky hierarchy, contextual, multidimensional, unification, categorial, etc.)
- grammars and automata architectures
- combinatorics on words
- language varieties and semigroups
- algebraic language theory
- computational, descriptional, communication and parameterized complexity
- patterns and codes
- regulated rewriting
- trees, tree languages and tree machines
- term rewriting
- graphs and graph transformation
- power series
- fuzzy and rough languages
- cellular automata
- DNA and other models of bio-inspired computing
- quantum, chemical and optical computing
- biomolecular nanotechnology
- automata and logic
- automata for verification
- automata, concurrency and Petri nets
- weighted machines
- foundations of finite state technology
- grammatical inference and learning
- symbolic neural networks
- text retrieval and pattern recognition
- string and combinatorial issues in computational biology and bioinformatics
- mathematical evolutionary genomics
- language-based cryptography
- circuit theory and applications
- language theoretic foundations of artificial intelligence and artificial life
LATA 2007 will consist of:
- 3 invited talks
- 2 tutorials
- refereed contributions
- open sessions for discussion in specific subfields
- young sessions on professional issues
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research. Papers should not exceed 12 pages and should be formatted according to the usual LNCS article style. One .pdf or postscript file containing the submission is what the organizers expect to receive here.
A volume of pre-proceedings will be available by the time of the conference. It is expected that a refereed volume of selected proceedings will be published soon after it in the LNCS Springer series.
The period for registration will be since January 9 to March 29, 2007. Details about how to register will be provided through the website of the conference in due time.
|Early registration fees:||200 euros|
|Early registration fees (PhD students):||50 euros|
|Registration fees:||300 euros|
|Registration fees (PhD students):||75 euros|
40 grants covering partial-board accommodation in the university hostel will be available for nonlocal PhD students. To apply, the candidate must e-mail her/his CV together with a copy of the document proving her/his condition as a PhD student.
