8th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON LANGUAGE AND AUTOMATA THEORY AND APPLICATIONS 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 ********************************************************************* AIMS: 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.). VENUE: LATA 2014 will take place in Madrid, the capital of Spain. The venue will be the School of Informatics of Complutense University. 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, concurrency and Petri nets automatic structures cellular automata codes combinatorics on words compilers computability 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 life natural language and speech automatic processing parallel and regulated rewriting parsing patterns power series quantum, chemical and optical computing semantics string and combinatorial issues in computational biology and bioinformatics string processing algorithms symbolic dynamics symbolic neural networks term rewriting transducers trees, tree languages and tree automata weighted automata STRUCTURE: LATA 2014 will consist of: invited talks invited tutorials peer-reviewed contributions INVITED SPEAKERS: to be announced PROGRAMME COMMITTEE: Dana Angluin (Yale, US) Eugene Asarin (Paris Diderot, FR) Jos Baeten (Amsterdam, NL) Christel Baier (Dresden, DE) Jan Bergstra (Amsterdam, NL) Jin-Yi Cai (Madison, US) Marek Chrobak (Riverside, US) Andrea Corradini (Pisa, IT) Mariangiola Dezani (Turin, IT) Ding-Zhu Du (Dallas, US) Michael R.
