Weighted Automata: Theory and Applications
March 27-31, 2006
Leipzig University, Germany

The workshop should cover all aspects of weighted automata,
ranging from the theory of formal power series to quantum
automata and applications as e.g. in digital image processing
or model-checking of probabilistic systems.
The aim is to present tutorials and survey lectures by
outstanding scientists in this area. Moreover, we encourage
everybody to participate in this workshop and present their
own technical contribution in this area.


J. Albert (Wuerzburg)
J. Gruska (Brno)

Survey lectures:

C. Baier (Bonn)
S. Bozapalidis (Thessaloniki)
Z. Esik (Szeged)
P. Gastin (Paris)

All lecturers are asked to give a survey on their field of
interest followed by recent research results.

If you wish to present a technical contribution, please send
