Call For Papers


LATA 2018

Ramat Gan, Israel
April 8-12, 2018

Organized by:
Department of Computer Science
Bar-Ilan University

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 2018
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 2018 will take place in Ramat Gan, in the district of Tel Aviv and home
to one of the world's major diamond exchanges. The venue will be the Faculty
of Exact Sciences of Bar-Ilan University.

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
automatic structures
combinatorics on words
computational complexity
concurrency and Petri nets
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 2018 will consist of:

invited talks
peer-reviewed contributions
