CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
Highlights of AutoMathA
Final Conference of the ESF Research Networking Programme
"Automata: From Mathematics to Applications"
Technische Universität Wien, 21. - 24. November 2010
The conference "Highlights of AutoMathA" is the culmination of the activities of the Research Network "Automata: From Mathematics to Applications", joining top research teams from 14 countries and funded by the European Science Foundation (ESF).
In 18 survey lectures by leading experts, the current state-of-the-art of automata theory will be presented, with a focus on progress obtained during the past decade, both in foundations and applications, and addressing also the challenges that will guide future research. The conference is an ideal and unique venue for all who are interested in an up-to-date overview of
this rich and fastly developing area.
There is no registration fee due to the support by ESF; however, registration through the conference website is mandatory.
For younger researchers the conference will serve as an "Advanced Winter School of Automata Theory". Limited travel support for young researchers (up to 30 year old) is available (up to 300 Euro per person). Applications should be sent to Werner Kuich, the head of the organizing committee (email@example.com).
The material presented at "Highlights of AutoMathA" will form part of a "Handbook of Automata Theory" that is under preparation, including as authors many of the conference speakers.
