automata theory, and related areas. The list of previous DLT conferences can be found in

COVID-19: We will monitor the global travel situation and consider the conditions the conference will be held.


Typical topics include, but are not limited to
  • grammars, acceptors and transducers for words;
  • trees and graphs, algebraic theories of automata;
  • algorithmic, combinatorial and algebraic properties of words and languages;
  • variable length codes; 
  • symbolic dynamics; 
  • cellular automata; 
  • polyominoes and multidimensional patterns; 
  • decidability questions; 
  • image manipulation and compression; 
  • efficient text algorithms; 
  • relationships to cryptography, concurrency, complexity theory and logic; 
  • bio-inspired computing;
  • quantum computing.
