Call For Papers

6-th International Workshop on
``Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications''
(NCMA 2014)

July 28 - 29, 2014, in Kassel, Germany

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 who work on different aspects
of non-classical models of automata and grammars to exchange and develop
novel ideas.

In order to emphasize the workshop character of NCMA 2014, we also invite
short contributions that report on recent results or ongoing work in addition
to full papers. However, in contrast to the accepted regular (full) papers
that will be published in the OCG proceedings, the accepted short papers will
appear in a separate technical report.

Topics for NCMA 2014 include
- formal models inspired by Linguistics, Bio-Computing, Text Processing,
Document Engineering, Self-Assemblance, etc.,
- bio-inspired models of automata and generative devices,
- cellular automata,
- gorgetting 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 welcome, too. 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, the fourth workshop, NCMA 2012, was
held in Fribourg, Switzerland, and the fifth workshop, NCMA 2013, was held
in Umea, Sweden. The proceedings of these workshops have appeared as volumes
256, 263, 282, 290, and 294 in the series of the Austrian Computer
Society. In addition, special issues of Fundamenta Informaticae were dedicated
to NCMA 2009 (Fund. Inf. 104 (1-2), 2010) and to NCMA 2010 (Fund. Inf. 112
(2-3), 2011), and a special issue of RAIRO Theoretical Informatics and
Applications was dedicated to NCMA 2011 (RAIRO Theor. Inf. and Appl. 46 (4)
2012). Furthermore, a special issue of the latter journal for NCMA 2012 and
a special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae for NCMA 2013 are in preparation,
and for NCMA 2014, a special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae is anticipated.

Important Dates:

Deadline for submissions of full papers: May 4, 2014
Notification of acceptance (full papers): May 31, 2014
Deadline for submissions of short papers: June 8, 2014
Notification of acceptance (short papers): June 20, 2014
Deadline for all final papers: July 1, 2014
Workshop: July 28-29, 2014.


Authors are invited to submit full papers of up to 16 pages or short papers
of up to 6 pages in electronic form (Postscript or PDF). All submissions should
be prepared using the OCG-style (please see the web-page
for detailed information). Concerning full papers, proofs omitted due to space
constraints may be put into an appendix that will be read by the reviewers at
their discretion. All full papers will be reviewed by at least three referees,
and simultaneous submissions to other conferences or workshops with published
proceedings are not allowed. Short papers will be reviewed by at least two PC
members, but simultaneous submissions of extended versions to other conferences
or workshops with published proceedings are allowed. To submit your paper,
