DCFS 2017 - Preliminary Call for Papers

19th International Conference on Descriptional Complexity of Formal Systems

July 3-5, 2017, Milano, Italy



DCFS 2017 will be held in Milano, Italy, on July 3-5, 2017.
The conference is organized by Department of Computer Science, University of
Milano, and by the IFIP Working Group 1.02 "Descriptional Complexity".


Submissions concerning the descriptional complexity of formal systems
and structures (and its applications) are invited for DCFS
2017. Original papers are sought in all aspects of descriptional complexity,
topics include, but are not limited to:

- Automata, grammars, languages and other formal systems; various modes
of operations and complexity measures.
- Succinctness of description of objects, state-explosion-like phenomena.
- Circuit complexity of Boolean functions and related measures.
- Size complexity of formal systems.
- Structural complexity of formal systems.
- Trade-offs between computational models and mode of operation.
- Applications of formal systems -- for instance in software and
hardware testing, in dialogue systems,
in systems modeling or in modeling natural languages-- and their complexity
- Co-operating formal systems.
- Size or structural complexity of formal systems for modeling
natural languages.
- Complexity aspects related to the combinatorics of words.
- Descriptional complexity in resource-bounded or structure-bounded
- Structural complexity as related to descriptional complexity.
- Frontiers between decidability and undecidability.
- Universality and reversibility.
- Nature-motivated (bio-inspired) architectures and unconventional models
of computing.
- Blum Static (Kolmogorov/Chaitin) complexity, algorithmic information.

Submissions to DCFS must not exceed 12 pages (in Springer-Verlag's
Lecture Notes style and including bibliography). If the authors believe
that more details are essential to substantiate the main claims, they
may include a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the
discretion of the program committee. Simultaneous submissions of papers
to any other conference with published proceedings or submitting
previously published papers is not allowed. Only electronic submissions
in the PDF format are accepted. Information about the submission
procedure will be available on the conference web page in due time. The
proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the series Lecture Notes
in Computer Science.
