Call for Papers

The 28th International Conference on Implementation and Application of Automata (CIAA 2024) will be held in Akita, Japan, between September 3 – 6, 2024.

CIAA 2024 website:

The International Conference on Implementation and Application of Automata (CIAA) is an annual conference in the field of theoretical computer science. The website of the conference series:

The purpose of CIAA 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 edition was held under the name Workshop on Implementing Automata (WIA’96) in London, Ontario, Canada, in 1996. In 2000, the workshop WIA became the conference CIAA. The last 10 editions of the conference took place in:
• CIAA 2023 Famagusta, Northern Cyprus
• CIAA 2022 Rouen, France
• CIAA 2021 Bremen, Germany
• CIAA 2020 (cancelled), 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 honor of our late colleague, Sheng YU.

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 through Easychair:
