Call For Papers

--- First Call for Papers – NCMA 2019 ---

11th International Workshop on
"Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications"
(NCMA 2019)

July 2 - 3, 2019, Valencia, Spain

NCMA welcomes research papers that contain original contributions on classical and non-classical models of automata and applications and related subjects. Many models of automata and grammar-like structures are the natural objects of theoretical computer science. They are studied from different points of view in various areas, both as theoretical concepts and as formal models for applications.

The aim of the workshops on "Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications" is to provide a forum for researchers who work on different aspects of classical and non-classical models of automata and grammars to exchange and develop novel ideas.

In order to emphasize the workshop character of NCMA 2019, we also invite short contributions that report on recent results or ongoing work in addition to full papers. However, in contrast to the accepted regular (full) papers that will be published in the OCG proceedings, the accepted short papers will appear in a separate technical report.

Topics for NCMA 2019 include (but are not limited) to :

formal models inspired by linguistics, bio-computing, text processing, document engineering, self-assembly, etc.,
bio-inspired models of automata and generative devices,
cellular automata,
forgetting automata and restarting automata,
automata with additional resources,
regulated rewriting/automata,
networks of automata or generative devices,
models of cooperation and communication,
quantum automata.
automata in the framework of membrane computing

Other related topics, in particular, contributions dealing with questions on classical automata and generative devices are also welcome.

The workshop series "Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications" started in Wrocław, Poland, in 2009. Since that the workshop takes place annually. The proceedings of these workshops have appeared as volumes in the series of the Austrian Computer Society. In addition, special issues of Fundamenta Informaticae or RAIRO – Theoretical Informatics and Applications were dedicated to each of them.

Important dates (all dates are to be understood AoE)

* Full papers:
Deadline for submissions: April 8, 2019
Notification of acceptance: May 20, 2019
* Short papers:
Deadline for submissions: May 27, 2019
Notification of acceptance: June 3, 2019
* Deadline for all final papers: June 10, 2019
* Workshop: July 2-3, 2019.


Authors are invited to submit full papers of up to 16 pages or short papers of up to 8 pages in electronic form (PDF). All submissions should be prepared using the OCG-style (please see the web-page for detailed information).

Concerning full papers, proofs omitted due to space constraints may be put into an appendix that will be read by the reviewers at their discretion. All full papers will be reviewed by at least three referees, and simultaneous submissions to other conferences or workshops with published proceedings are not allowed. Short papers will be reviewed by at least two PC members, but simultaneous submissions of extended versions to other conferences or workshops with published proceedings are allowed.

Proceedings and conference publications

The accepted full papers will appear in the proceedings volume published in the series of the Austrian Computer Society, which will be available at the workshop. Short papers will also be available in a separate technical report.

A special issue of a renowned journal is planned to be devoted to revised and extended versions of selected papers of the workshop.
