LATA is a yearly conference in theoretical computer science and its applications organized by Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC).

Following the tradition of the International Schools in Formal Languages and Applications developed at Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona since 2002, LATA 2013 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.).


LATA 2013 will take place in Bilbao, at the Basque Country in Northern Spain. The venue will be the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM).
