Call for Papers - AFL 2017

15th International Conference on Automata and Formal Languages

Debrecen, Hungary

September 4-6, 2017

http://www.inf.unideb.hu/afl2017
-------------------------------------------------------


The AFL series, initiated by the late Professor István Peák in 1980, has a long tradition. The AFL conferences cover all aspects of automata and formal languages, including theory and applications. In 2017, the conference is organized by the Faculty of Informatics, University of Debrecen and the Faculty of Informatics, Eötvös Loránd University of Budapest, Hungary.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

-Grammars, acceptors and transducers for strings, trees, graphs, arrays, etc.,
-algebraic theories for automata and languages,
-combinatorial properties of words and languages,
-formal power series,
-decision problems,
-efficient algorithms for automata and languages.

Relations to
-complexity theory and logic,
-picture description and analysis,
-quantum computing,
-cryptography,
-concurrency.

Applications of automata and language theory in
-biology,
-natural language processing,
-and other fields.


The scientific program will consist of invited lectures and contributed presentations selected by the international Program Committee.
