Second Announcement and Call for Submissions

7th International Workshop
Weighted Automata: Theory and Applications
WATA 2014

May 5-9, 2014, Leipzig, Germany


The workshop should cover all aspects of weighted automata,
ranging from the theory of quantitative automata and logics to
applications for real-time systems and natural language processing.
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 to present their own technical
contribution in this area.

We are happy to announce the following tutorials and survey lectures:
