Announcement and Call for Survey Lectures
Jewels of Automata: from Mathematics to Applications
Leipzig, May 6--9, 2015
The conference AutoMathA 2015 will survey a wide picture of
research in automata theory and related mathematical fields.
It will consist of 24 invited lectures which will describe
significant progress over the past years, and will be a
meeting point for both young and senior researchers to learn
and to discuss about automata theory, its connections with
mathematics and its applications.
This event is a follow-up of the multidisciplinary programme
Automata: from Mathematics to Applications (AutoMathA, 2005--2010)
of the European Science Foundation and of its final conference
"Highlights of AutoMathA" in Vienna 2010.

*Call for Survey Lectures*
The conference intends to have 24 lectures.
Presently, there are 10 open slots, and applications
for surveys are invited.
All lectures will have the same length of about 50 minutes
and will deal with significant progress over the past years.
They will serve as surveys on such recent work, not necessarily
focusing only on work of the speaker. There will be only
informal proceedings (with slides or texts); so the results
presented are usually already published (or accepted) elsewhere.
Submissions can be short abstracts with references,
outlines of talks or pointers to papers to be covered
in a lecture.
Please send your submission to:
Deadline for submissions: Jan 31, 2015
Notification: Feb 28, 2015
Due to support by the German Research Foundation (DFG),
this conference is *fee-free*.
However, registration is mandatory for participation.
Please send your name, affiliation and intended length of stay to:
Deadline for registration: March 15, 2015
Participants with few support from their institutions can apply
for limited support. Applications should be sent to
Deadline for applications for financial support: Feb 28, 2015
