AIMS:
LATA is a conference series 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 2015 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.
VENUE:
LATA 2015 will take place in Nice, the second largest French city on the Mediterranean coast. The venue will
be the University Castle at Parc Valrose.
SCOPE:
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
automata, concurrency and Petri nets
automatic structures
cellular automata
codes
combinatorics on words
computational complexity
data and image compression
descriptional complexity
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
parallel and regulated rewriting
parsing
patterns
power series
string and combinatorial issues in bioinformatics
string processing algorithms
symbolic dynamics
term rewriting
transducers
trees, tree languages and tree automata
unconventional models of computation
weighted automata
STRUCTURE:
LATA 2015 will consist of:
invited talks
invited tutorials
peer-reviewed contributions
