The 12th edition of the CIAA will take place in Prague, Czech
Republic, on July 16-18, 2007. The conference will be hosted by the
Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Czech Technical
University in Prague.
We solicit papers in areas including, but not limited to, the
following topics as they relate to automata:

 - Bioinformatics
 - Bio-inspired computing
 - Complexity of automata operations
 - Compilers
 - Computer-aided verification
 - Concurrency
 - Data structure design for automata
 - Data and image compression
 - Design and architecture of automata software
 - Digital libraries
 - Document engineering
 - Editors, environments
 - Experimental studies and practical experiences
 - Industrial applications
 - Natural language processing
 - Networking
 - New algorithms for manipulating automata
 - Object-oriented modeling
 - Pattern-matching
 - Quantum computing
 - Speech and speaker recognition
 - Structured and semi-structured documents
 - Symbolic manipulation environments for automata
 - Teaching
 - Text processing
 - Techniques for graphical display of automata
 - Viruses, related phenomena
 - World-wide web 

Authors are invited to submit an electronic version (Postscript or
pdf) by April 3, 2007. 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. The extended abstract
should provide sufficient details 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. If appropriate, proof details omitted in the
paper may be added in an appendix. Precise instructions concerning the
submission procedure will be provided later on the CIAA 2007 web site We expect the proceedings
to appear in the Springer-Verlag Lectures Notes in Computer Science
series (pending approval). (See, for example, LNCS 3845 and LNCS 4094
for the proceedings of two previous conferences.) Extended versions of
selected papers from the proceedings of the conference series will be
solicited for publication in a special issue of Theoretical Computer
Science (TCS) and International Journal of Foundations of Computer
Science (IJFCS), alternating each year with the CIAA 2007 special
issue appearing in TCS. There will be a Best Paper Award (USD$300) for
CIAA 2007, which is sponsored by the University of California at Santa
