Call For Papers

Organised by

Department of Computing Science,
Umeå University and
Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC),
Rovira i Virgili University


LATA is a conference series on theoretical computer science and its applications. Following the tradition of the diverse PhD training events in the field organized by Rovira i Virgili University since 2002, LATA 2017 will reserve significant room for young scholars at the beginning of their career. It will aim at attracting contributions from classical theory fields as well as application areas.

LATA 2017 will take place in Umeå, a university town in North Sweden which was European Capital of Culture in 2014. The venue will be the Faculty of Science and Technology.

Topics of either theoretical or applied interest include, but are not limited to:

algebraic language theory
algorithms for semi-structured data mining
algorithms on automata and words
automata and logic
automata for system analysis and programme verification
automata networks
automata, concurrency and Petri nets
automatic structures
combinatorics on words
computational complexity
data and image compression
descriptional complexity
foundations of finite state technology
foundations of XML
grammars (Chomsky hierarchy, contextual, unification, categorial, etc.)
grammatical inference and algorithmic learning
graphs and graph transformation
language varieties and semigroups
language-based cryptography
mathematical and logical foundations of programming methodologies
parallel and regulated rewriting
power series
string processing algorithms
symbolic dynamics
term rewriting
trees, tree languages and tree automata
weighted automata


LATA 2017 will consist of

invited talks
peer-reviewed contributions


Authors are invited to submit non-anonymized papers in English presenting original and unpublished research. Papers should not exceed 12 single-spaced pages (including eventual appendices, references, proofs, etc.) and should be prepared according to the standard format for Springer Verlag's LNCS series (see
