                           CALL FOR PAPERS

            Fifth International Conference on Implementation
                    and Application of Automata
                     CIAA 2000 (Formerly WIA)

                        July 24-26, 2000
                 University of Western Ontario
                   London, Ontario, Canada

This conference concerns research on all aspects of implementation and
application of automata and related structures.

Automata theory is the foundation of computer science. Its applications
have spread to almost all areas of computer science and many other
disciplines. In addition, there is a growing number of software systems
designed to manipulate automata, regular expressions, grammars, and
related structures; examples include FLAP, FADELA, AMORE, FireLite,
Automate, Turing's World, FinITE, INR, and Grail.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together members of the
academic, research, and industrial community who have an interest in
implementation and application of automata to demonstrate and analyze
their work and to explain the problems they have been solving.

In conjunction with this conference, there will be two other events at
the University of Western Ontario.  A one-day symposium entitled
"Half Century of Automata Theory" (
will be held on July 26, 2000, and a workshop on "Descriptional
Complexity of Automata, Grammars, and Related Structures" will be on
July 27-29, 2000.


We solicit papers and demos on all aspects of implementation and
application of automata and related structures.


Authors are requested to submit an eletronic version (in postscript or
latex form) or six hard copies of an extended abstract (arriving) by
MARCH 16, 2000.  An extended abstract should start with the title, each
author's name, affiliation, and e-mail address, and a one-paragraph
summary of the results and ideas, to: CIAA2000 at or

                    CIAA 2000
                    Department of Computer Science
                    University of Western Ontario
                    London, Ontario, Canada
                    N6A 5B7

The extended abstract should provide sufficient detail to allow the
Program Committee to evaluate its validity, quality, and relevance to
the conference.  The extended abstract should be at most ten (10) pages
long using 11-point font with ample margins.

We expect the proceedings to appear in the Springer-Verlag Lecture
Notes in Computer Science Series after the conference. (See, e.g., LNCS
1260 and LNCS 1436 for the proceedings of the previous conferences.)
We will distribute a preproceedings for participants at the conference.


We encourage the submission of software demos.  Developers wishing to
demonstrate their software should submit a two-page description to the
preceding address by March 16, 2000, outlining the design of their
system and their computing needs (if any).
