WATA 2016: Weighted Automata: Theory and Applications
Link:http://wata2016.gforge.inria.fr/

April 25-29, 2016, Aalborg University, Denmark

AIMS AND SCOPE

The WATA conferences cover all aspects of weighted automata, ranging from the theory of quantitative automata and logics to applications for real-time systems and natural language processing. The aim is to present tutorials and survey lectures by outstanding scientists in this area. Moreover, we encourage everybody to participate in this workshop and to present their own technical contribution in this area. The workshop will provide an opportunity to present recent and ongoing work, to meet colleagues, and to discuss new ideas and future trends.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Typical, but not exclusive topics of interest are:
- weighted and quantitative systems, including weighted automata,
timed and priced automata, Markovian models, hybrid
- Logics and specification formalisms for weighted and quantitative
systems
- Metric semantics for weighted and quantitative systems
- Composition and compositional reasoning about weighted and
quantitative systems
- Algorithmic aspects
- Learning and synthesizing weighted and quantitative systems

SUBMISSION and PUBLICATION

Interested participants are welcome to submit one-page abstracts of presentations. Submission of interesting results already published elsewhere is allowed, indeed encouraged.

Submission of abstracts is handled through EasyChair. The submission
link is
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wata16

There will be a special issue of TCS-A devoted to the topic of this workshop. We will invite submissions to this issue, which should contain original research on weighted automata or tightly related areas.
Participation in WATA 2016 is encouraged, but will not be a prerequisite for a submission. All submissions will be refereed according to the usual high journal standards.
Presentations will be selected on the basis of submitted abstracts.

IMPORTANT DATES

Submission Deadline March 29, 2016.
Notification April 4, 2016
Final Version Due April 11, 2016
