LATA - Language and Automata Theory and Applications. The 6th International Conference on Language and Automata Theory and Applications, March 5-9, 2012, A Coruña, Spain.
The history of LATA starts in 2007. After three consecutive editions organized in Tarragona, the 4th edition (LATA 2010) took place in Trier, Germany while the 5th edition was back in Tarragona. Now it is the time for a new place to host LATA 2012, this time we go to A Coruña, Galicia, Spain.

LATA is a yearly conference in theoretical computer science and its applications. Following the tradition of the International Schools in Formal Languages and Applications developed at Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona since 2002, LATA 2012 will reserve significant room for young scholars at the beginning of their career. It will aim at attracting contributions 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:
LATA 2012 will consist of:
