Call For Papers

CIAA 2022: CALL FOR PAPERS (Extended Deadline)

26th International Conference on Implementation and Application of Automata

Rouen, France
June 28, July 1st, 2022
Submission link:

The International Conference on Implementation and Application of Automata
is an annual conference in the field of theoretical computer science:

Its purpose is to bring together members of the academic, research, and industrial
community who have an interest in the theory, implementation, and application of
automata and related structures. The conference concerns research on all aspects
of implementation and application of automata and related structures, including
theoretical aspects.

The first Workshop on Implementing Automata (WIA'96) was held in London, Ontario,
Canada, in 1996. In 2000, the workshop WIA became the conference CIAA.
The last editions are listed here:

CIAA 2021 Bremen, Germany
CIAA 2020 (canceled), Loughborough, United Kingdom
CIAA 2019, Kosice, Slovakia
CIAA 2018, Charlottetown, PEI, Canada
CIAA 2017, Marne-la-Vallée (Paris), France
CIAA 2016, Seoul, South Korea
CIAA 2015, Umeå, Sweden
CIAA 2014, Giessen, Germany

A "Best Paper Awards" will be presented to the author(s) of the paper judged to be the best on the basis of the referee reports. From 2014, these "Best Paper Awards" are named "Sheng Yu Awards" in honour of our late lamented colleague, Sheng YU.

Selected papers from the conference will be invited for consideration in an extended version for a special issue in Theoretical Computer Science (TCS).

Submission Guidelines

Submissions must be written in LaTeX using the LNCS LaTeX2e style and must not exceed 12 pages, bibliography included. 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 journals or any other conference with published proceedings, or submitting
previously published papers is not allowed. Only electronic submission of PDF documents is possible.
The proceedings will be published in the Springer LNCS series and will be available at the conference.
Authors should submit their contributions at the Easychair website:
