***************************************************************** 2nd Call for Papers 6th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE AND AUTOMATA THEORY AND APPLICATIONS LATA 2012 A Coruña, Spain March 5-9, 2012 http://grammars.grlmc.com/LATA2012/ ***************************************************************** AIMS: 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.). VENUE: LATA 2012 will take place in A Coruña, at the northwest of Spain. The venue will be the Faculty of Computer Science, University of A Coruña. SCOPE: Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to: - algebraic language theory - algorithms for semi-structured data mining - algorithms on automata and words - automata and logic - automata for system analysis and programme verification - automata, concurrency and Petri nets - automatic structures - cellular automata - combinatorics on words - computability - computational complexity - computational linguistics - data and image compression - decidability questions on words and languages - descriptional complexity - DNA and other models of bio-inspired computing - document engineering - foundations of finite state technology - foundations of XML - fuzzy and rough languages - grammars (Chomsky hierarchy, contextual, multidimensional, unification, categorial, etc.) - grammars and automata architectures - grammatical inference and algorithmic learning - graphs and graph transformation - language varieties and semigroups - language-based cryptography - language-theoretic foundations of artificial intelligence and artificial life - parallel and regulated rewriting - parsing - pattern recognition - patterns and codes - power series - quantum, chemical and optical computing - semantics - string and combinatorial issues in computational biology and bioinformatics - string processing algorithms - symbolic dynamics - symbolic neural networks - term rewriting - transducers - trees, tree languages and tree automata - weighted automata STRUCTURE: LATA 2012 will consist of: - 3 invited talks - 2 invited tutorials - peer-reviewed contributions INVITED SPEAKERS: Eugene Asarin (Paris 7) Bernard Boigelot (Liège) Gilles Dowek (INRIA), tutorial Rodney Downey (Wellington), tutorial Jack Lutz (Iowa State) PROGRAMME COMMITTEE: Eric Allender (Rutgers) Miguel Á.
