***************************************************************** Call for papers 2nd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE AND AUTOMATA THEORY AND APPLICATIONS (LATA 2008) Tarragona, Spain, March 13-19, 2008 http://www.grlmc.com ***************************************************************** AIMS: LATA is a 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, LATA 2008 will reserve significant room for young computer scientists at the beginning of their career. It will aim at attracting scholars from both classical theory fields and application areas (bioinformatics, systems biology, language technology, artificial intelligence, etc.). SCOPE: 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 - extended automata - combinatorics on words - language varieties and semigroups - algebraic language theory - computability - computational and structural complexity - decidability questions on words and languages - patterns and codes - symbolic dynamics - 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 - symbolic neural networks - quantum, chemical and optical computing - biomolecular nanotechnology - automata and logic - algorithms on automata and words - automata for system analysis and programme verification - automata, concurrency and Petri nets - parsing - weighted machines - transducers - foundations of finite state technology - grammatical inference and algorithmic learning - text retrieval, pattern matching and pattern recognition - text algorithms - string and combinatorial issues in computational biology and bioinformatics - mathematical evolutionary genomics - language-based cryptography - data and image compression - circuits and networks - language-theoretic foundations of artificial intelligence and artificial life - digital libraries - document engineering STRUCTURE: LATA 2008 will consist of: - 3 invited talks (to be announced in the second call for papers) - 2 tutorials (to be announced in the second call for papers) - refereed contributions - open sessions for discussion in specific subfields or on professional issues PROGRAMME COMMITTEE: Jorge Almeida (Oporto) Stefano Crespi-Reghizzi (Milan) Erzsebet Csuhaj-Varju (Budapest) Carsten Damm (Goettingen) Volker Diekert (Stuttgart) Frank Drewes (Umea) Manfred Droste (Leipzig) Zoltan Esik (Tarragona) Henning Fernau (Trier) Joerg Flum (Freiburg, Germany) Rusins Freivalds (Riga) Christiane Frougny (Paris) Max Garzon (Memphis) Tero Harju (Turku) Lane Hemaspaandra (Rochester) Markus Holzer (Munich) Hendrik Jan Hoogeboom (Leiden) Costas Iliopoulos (London) Kevin Knight (Marina del Rey) Hans-Joerg Kreowski (Bremen) Dietrich Kuske (Leipzig) Thierry Lecroq (Rouen) Carlos Martin-Vide (Tarragona & Brussels, chair) Victor Mitrana (Tarragona) Mark-Jan Nederhof (St.-Andrews) Mitsunori Ogihara (Rochester) Friedrich Otto (Kassel) Jean-Eric Pin (Paris) Kai Salomaa (Kingston, Canada) Jacobo Toran (Ulm) Alfonso Valencia (Madrid) Hsu-Chun Yen (Taipeh) Sheng Yu (London, Canada) ORGANIZING COMMITTEE: Gabor Balazsfalvi Madalina Barbaiani Gemma Bel-Enguix Cristina Bibire Carlos Cruz Reyes Adrian-Horia Dediu Szilard-Zsolt Fazekas Armand-Mihai Ionescu M. Dolores Jimenez-Lopez Alexander Krassovitskiy Guangwu Liu Remco Loos Carlos Martin-Vide (chair) Zoltan-Pal Mecsei Tsetsegkhand Namsrai Catalin-Ionut Tirnauca Sherzod Turaev Florentina-Lilica Voicu SUBMISSIONS: 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. Submissions have to be sent through the web page: http://www.easychair.org/LATA2008/ PUBLICATION: A volume of proceedings (expectedly LNCS) will be available by the time of the conference. A refereed volume of selected proceedings containing extended papers will be published soon after it as a special issue of a major journal. REGISTRATION: The period for registration will be open since January 7 to March 13, 2008. Details about how to register will be provided through the website of the conference. Early registration fees: 250 euros Early registration fees (PhD students): 100 euros Registration fees: 350 euros Registration fees (PhD students): 150 euros FUNDING: 25 grants covering partial-board accommodation 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 status as a PhD student.
