Call For Papers

5th International Workshop on
``Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications''
(NCMA 2013)
August 13 - 14, 2013, in Umea (Sweden)
- Call for Papers -

Research papers are invited that contain original contributions on non-classical
models of automata and applications and related subjects. Many non-classical
models of automata and grammar-like structures are the natural objects of
theoretical computer science. They are studied from different points of view in
various areas, both as theoretical concepts and as formal models for applications.
The aim of the workshops on
``Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications''
is to provide an opportunity for researchers that work on different aspects of
non-classical models of automata and grammars to exchange and develop novel ideas.
Topics for NCMA 2013 include the following:
- formal models inspired by Linguistics, Bio-Computing, Text Processing, Document
Engineering, Self-Assemblance, etc.,
- bio-inspired models of automata and generative devices,
- cellular automata,
- forgetting automata and restarting automata,
- automata with additional resources,
- regulated rewriting/automata,
- networks of automata or generative devices,
- models of cooperation and communication,
- quantum automata,
but other related topics are also welcome. In particular, it should be stressed that
also contributions dealing with questions on classical automata and generative
devices are welcome.

The first workshop on Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications, NCMA 2009,
was held in Wroclaw, Poland, in 2009 as a satellite event of FCT 2009, sponsored by
the AutoMathA project of the European Science Foundation (ESF). The second workshop,
NCMA 2010, was held in Jena, Germany, as an associated workshop of the Conference on
Membrane Computing (CMC 2010), the third workshop, NCMA 2011, was organized at the
Universita degli Studi di Milano, Milano, Italy, and the fourth workshop, NCMA 2012,
was held in Fribourg, Switzerland. The proceedings of these workshops have appeared
as volumes 256, 263, 282, and 290 in the series of the Austrian Computer
Society. In addition, special issues of Fundamenta Informaticae were dedicated to
NCMA 2009 (Vol. 104 (1-2), 2010) and to NCMA 2010 (Vol. 112 (2-3), 2011), a special
issue of RAIRO Theoretical Informatics and Applications was dedicated to NCMA 2011
(Vol. 46 (4), 2012), and a special issue of RAIRO Theoretical Informatics and
Applications for NCMA 2012 is in preparation. The proceedings of NCMA 2013 will again
appear as a volume in the series, and extended and carefully revised
versions of selected contributions will be published in a special issue of Fundamenta

Important Dates:

Deadline for submissions: May 26, 2013
Notification of acceptance: June 23, 2013
