Call For Papers

The International Conference on Developments in Language Theory (DLT 2023) is an event organized to bring together members of the academic, research, and industrial community who have an interest in formal languages, automata theory, and related areas (see possible topics below). The conference will be held in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Words (WORDS 2023) in Umeå, Sweden, one week before midsummer. Hence, for those attending it may be a good opportunity to extend their stay in northern Sweden by a week.

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research. The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series. Simultaneous submission to journals or other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages excluding bibliography and must follow the LNCS-style LaTeX2e (available at

In order to facilitate the review process, all proofs omitted due to page limitations can be given in an appendix or made accessible through a reliable link to a freely available electronic preprint. Please note that the paper should be self-contained; reviewers are not required to read any additional pages, thus consulting the appendix is up to the reviewer. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF through the EasyChair system.

Typical topics include, but are not limited to:
* grammars, acceptors, and transducers for words, trees, and graphs
* algebraic theories of automata
* algorithmic, combinatorial, and algebraic properties of words and languages
* relations between formal languages and artificial neural networks
* variable length codes
* symbolic dynamics
* cellular automata
* groups and semigroups generated by automata
* polyominoes and multidimensional patterns
* decidability questions
* image manipulation and compression
* efficient text algorithms
* relationships to cryptography, concurrency, complexity theory, and logic
* bio-inspired computing
* quantum computing
