LATA 2017

Umeå, Sweden

March 6-10, 2017


Organized by:


Department of Computing Science

Umeå University


Research Group on Mathematical Linguistics (GRLMC)

Rovira i Virgili University






LATA is a conference series on theoretical computer science and its applications. Following the tradition of the diverse PhD training events in the field organized by Rovira i Virgili University since 2002, LATA 2017 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.



LATA 2017 will take place in Umeå, a university town in North Sweden which was European Capital of Culture in 2014. The venue will be the Faculty of Science and Technology.



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

automatic structures


combinatorics on words

computational complexity

concurrency and Petri nets

data and image compression

descriptional complexity

foundations of finite state technology

foundations of XML

grammars (Chomsky hierarchy, contextual, unification, categorial, etc.)

grammatical inference and algorithmic learning

graphs and graph transformation

language varieties and semigroups

language-based cryptography

mathematical and logical foundations of programming methodologies

parallel and regulated rewriting



power series

string processing algorithms

symbolic dynamics

term rewriting


trees, tree languages and tree automata

weighted automata



LATA 2017 will consist of:


invited talks

peer-reviewed contributions
