Call For Papers



LATA is a yearly conference in theoretical computer science and
its applications. As linked to the International PhD School in
Formal Languages and Applications that is being developed at the
host institute since 2001, LATA 2008 will reserve significant
room for young computer scientists at the beginning of their
career. It will aim at attracting scholars from both classical
theory fields and application areas (bioinformatics, systems
biology, language technology, artificial intelligence, etc.).


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

- words, languages and automata
- grammars (Chomsky hierarchy, contextual, multidimensional,
unification, categorial, etc.)
- grammars and automata architectures
- extended automata
- combinatorics on words
- language varieties and semigroups
- algebraic language theory
- computability
- computational and structural complexity
- decidability questions on words and languages
- patterns and codes
- symbolic dynamics
- regulated rewriting
- trees, tree languages and tree machines
- term rewriting
- graphs and graph transformation
- power series
- fuzzy and rough languages
- cellular automata
- DNA and other models of bio-inspired computing
- symbolic neural networks
- quantum, chemical and optical computing
- biomolecular nanotechnology
- automata and logic
- algorithms on automata and words
- automata for system analysis and programme verification
- automata, concurrency and Petri nets
- parsing
- weighted machines
- transducers
- foundations of finite state technology
- grammatical inference and algorithmic learning
- text retrieval, pattern matching and pattern recognition
- text algorithms
- string and combinatorial issues in computational biology and
- mathematical evolutionary genomics
- language-based cryptography
- data and image compression
- circuits and networks
- language-theoretic foundations of artificial intelligence and
artificial life
- digital libraries
- document engineering


LATA 2008 will consist of:

- 3 invited talks (to be announced in the second call for papers)
- 2 tutorials (to be announced in the second call for papers)
- refereed contributions
- open sessions for discussion in specific subfields or on
professional issues

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and
unpublished research. Papers should not exceed 12 pages and
should be formatted according to the usual LNCS article style.
Submissions have to be sent through the web page:


A volume of proceedings (expectedly LNCS) will be available by
the time of the conference. A refereed volume of selected
proceedings containing extended papers will be published soon
after it as a special issue of a major journal.


The period for registration will be open since January 7 to March
13, 2008. Details about how to register will be provided through
the website of the conference.

Early registration fees: 250 euros Early registration fees (PhD
students): 100 euros Registration fees: 350 euros Registration
fees (PhD students): 150 euros


25 grants covering partial-board accommodation will be available
for nonlocal PhD students. To apply, the candidate must e-mail
her/his CV together with a copy of the document proving her/his
status as a PhD student.
