Call For Papers


LATA 2014

Madrid, Spain

March 10-14, 2014

Organized by:

Research Group on Implementation of Language-Driven Software and
Applications (ILSA)
Complutense University of Madrid

Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC)
Rovira i Virgili University



LATA is a yearly conference on theoretical computer science and its
applications. Following the tradition of the diverse PhD training events in
the field developed at Rovira i Virgili University in Tarragona since 2002,
LATA 2014 will reserve significant room for young scholars at the beginning
of their career. It will aim at attracting contributions from both classical
theory fields and application areas (bioinformatics, language technology,
artificial intelligence, etc.).


LATA 2014 will take place in Madrid, the capital of Spain. The venue will be
the School of Informatics of Complutense 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, concurrency and Petri nets
automatic structures
cellular automata
combinatorics on words
computational complexity
data and image compression
decidability issues on words and languages
descriptional complexity
DNA and other models of bio-inspired computing
digital libraries and document engineering
foundations of finite state technology
foundations of XML
fuzzy and rough languages
grammars (Chomsky hierarchy, contextual, unification, categorial, etc.)
grammatical inference and algorithmic learning
graphs and graph transformation
language varieties and semigroups
language-based cryptography
language-theoretic foundations of artificial intelligence and artificial
natural language and speech automatic processing
parallel and regulated rewriting
power series
quantum, chemical and optical computing
string and combinatorial issues in computational biology and bioinformatics
string processing algorithms
symbolic dynamics
symbolic neural networks
term rewriting
trees, tree languages and tree automata
weighted automata


LATA 2014 will consist of:

invited talks
invited tutorials
peer-reviewed contributions
