Weighted Automata: Theory and Applications (WATA 2016)
April 25-29, 2016,
Aalborg University, Denmark

Link:  http://wata2016.gforge.inria.fr/


The WATA conferences 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. The workshop will provide an
opportunity to present recent and ongoing work, to meet colleagues, and to
discuss new ideas and future trends.


Typical, but not exclusive topics of interest are:

- weighted and quantitative systems, including weighted automata,
 timed and priced automata, Markovian models, hybrid automata

- Logics and specification formalisms for weighted and quantitative systems

- Metric semantics for weighted and quantitative systems

- Composition and compositional reasoning about weighted and
 quantitative systems

- Algorithmic aspects

- Learning and synthesizing weighted and quantitative systems

elsewhere is allowed, indeed encouraged.

Submission of abstracts is handled through EasyChair.

Presentations will be selected on the basis of submitted abstracts.


Submission Deadline      March 29, 2016.
Notification             April 4, 2016
Final Version Due        April 11, 2016


There will be a special issue of TCS-A devoted to the topic of this
workshop. We will invite submissions to this issue, which should contain
original research on weighted automata or tightly related areas.

Participation in WATA 2016 is encouraged, but will not be a
prerequisite for a submission. All submissions will be refereed
according to the usual high journal standards.

Editors of this special issue will be
Manfred Droste, Kim G. Larsen, Axel Legay, Radu Mardare, and Heiko Vogler
