It will consist of 26 invited lectures which will describe significant progress over the past years, and will be a meeting point for both young and senior researchers to learn and to discuss about automata theory, its connections with mathematics and its applications. For young researchers the conference will serve as an “Advanced Spring School of Automata Theory”. All lectures will have the same length of about 50 minutes and will deal with significant progress over the past years. They will serve as surveys on such recent work, not necessarily focusing only on work of the speaker. There will be only informal proceedings (with slides or texts); so the results presented are usually already published (or accepted) elsewhere. This event is a follow-up of the multidisciplinary programme Automata: from Mathematics to Applications (AutoMathA, 2005 - 2010) of the European Science Foundation and of its final conference "Highlights of AutoMathA" in Vienna 2010. * INVITED SPEAKERS Jean-Paul Allouche (Paris), Mikolaj Bojanczyk (Warsaw), Patricia Bouyer-Decitre (Cachan), Thomas Brihaye (Mons), Olivier Carton (Paris), Thomas Colcombet (Paris), Volker Diekert (Stuttgart), Michael Elberfeld (Aachen), Uli Fahrenberg (Rennes), Nathanael Fijalkow (Paris), Paul Gastin (Cachan), Artur Jez (Saarbruecken), Ines Klimann (Paris), Dexter Kozen (Ithaca), Dietrich Kuske (Ilmenau), Kim Larsen (Aalborg), Ranko Lazic (Warwick), Markus Lohrey (Siegen), Cyril Nicaud (Marne-la-Vallee), Igor Potapov (Liverpool), Jacques Sakarovitch (Paris), Thomas Schwentick (Dortmund), Marinella Sciortino (Palermo), Ludwig Staiger (Halle), Moshe Vardi (Houston), James Worrell (Oxford) * POSTER http://www.automatha.uni-leipzig.de/AutoMathA.pdf CALCO EARLY IDEAS (CALCO 2015) Call for Contributions 24-26 June, 2015, Nijmegen, Netherlands https://coalg.org/calco15/ei.html satellite event of the 6th Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science (CALCO 2015) * The programme of CALCO 2015 will include special sessions reserved for the CALCO Early Ideas Workshop, featuring presentations of work in progress and original research proposals.

SYMPOSIUM ON DEPENDABLE SOFTWARE ENGINEERING: THEORIES, TOOLS AND APPLICATIONS (SETTA 2015) Call for Papers November 4-6, 2015 Nanjing University http://cs.nju.edu.cn/setta/ * BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The aim of the symposium is to bring together international researchers and practitioners in the field of software technology. Its focus is on formal methods and advanced software technologies, especially for engineering complex, large-scale artefacts like cyber-physical systems, networks of things, enterprise systems, or cloud-based services. Contributions relating to formal methods or integrating them with software engineering, as well as papers advancing scalability or widening the scope of rigorous methods to new design goals are especially welcome. Being hosted in China, the symposium will also provide a platform for building up research collaborations between the rapidly growing Chinese computer science community and its international counterpart. The symposium will support this process through dedicated events and therefore welcomes both young researchers considering international collaboration in formal methods and established researchers looking for international cooperation and willing to attract new colleagues to the domain. * SUBMISSIONS Authors are invited to submit papers on original research, industrial applications, or position papers proposing challenges in fundamental research and technology. The latter two types of submissions are expected to contribute to the development of formal methods either by substantiating the advantages of integrating formal methods into the development cycle or through delineating need for research by demonstrating weaknesses of existing technologies, especially when addressing new application domains. Submissions can take the form of either normal or short papers. Short papers can discuss ongoing research at an early stage, including PhD projects. Papers should be written in English. Regular Papers should not exceed 15 pages and Short Papers should not exceed 6 pages in LNCS format (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). The proceedings will be published as a volume in Springer's LNCS series.
