DLT 2020 - Call for Papers

24nd International Conference on Developments in Language Theory
Tampa, FL, USA
May 11-15, 2020

The International Conference on Developments in Language Theory (DLT 2020) is an event organized to bring together members of the academic, research, and industrial community who have an interest in formal languages, automata theory, and related areas (see possible topics below). The conference will be held in conjunction with the workshop Discrete and Topological Models in Molecular Biology (DTMB2020) under the auspices of the Southeast Center for Mathematical Biology.

Deadline for paper submissions: January 10, 2020
Notification to authors: February 25, 2020
Final Version: March 11, 2020
DLT 2020: May 11-15, 2020

Submission Guidelines
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research. The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series. Simultaneous submission to journals or other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed.
Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages excluding bibliography and should follow the LNCS-style LaTeX2e (available at
In order to facilitate the review process, all proofs omitted due to page limitations can be given in an appendix or made accessible through a reliable link to a freely available electronic preprint. Please note that the paper should be self-contained; reviewers are not required to read any additional pages, and review of the appendix is up to the reviewer. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF through the EasyChair system:
