First Call for Participation
10th International Workshop on Weighted Automata: Theory and 
Applications (WATA 2020)
April 14–17, 2020, CIRM at Marseille, France

The workshop covers all aspects of weighted automata, ranging from the 
theory of weighted automata and quantitative logics to applications for 
real-time systems and natural language processing. The aim is to present 
tutorials and invited lectures by outstanding scientists in this area. 
We invite everybody to participate in this workshop without fee (other 
than the all-inclusive accommodation at CIRM) and to present their own 
technical contributions in this area.
RAMICS 2020, the 18th International Conference on Relational and 
Algebraic Methods in Computer Science, will take place just before WATA, 
from 8 to 11 April, at École polytechnique in Palaiseau (close to 
Paris). We encourage participants to combine the two events.
