CIAA is the premier annual conference for researchers, application
developers and users of automata-based systems. The CIAA series has
published significant papers describing the applications of finite
automata in parsing and compilers, logic, natural language processing,
pattern matching, database management and bioinformatics. The
conference also accepts papers that advance the state of the art in
the theoretical study of finite automata, regular expressions,
grammars and related formal models.

A goal of the conference is to provide additions and enhancements to
existing software systems that manipulate automata, regular
expressions, grammars, and related structures; examples of such
systems include AGL, AMoRE, ASTL, Automate, FADELA, FAdo, FinITE, FIRE
Station, FSM, Grail+, INR, JFLAP, MERLin, MONA, Nooj, TESTAS, Turing's
World, Unitex, Vaucanson, WFSC and Whale Calf.


CIAA invites papers on all aspects of implementation, application, and
theory of automata and related structures, including but not limited
    * Bioinformatics
    * 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
    * DNA/molecular/membrane computing
    * Document engineering
    * Editors, environments
    * Experimental studies and practical experience
    * Industrial applications
    * Natural language and speech processing
    * Networking
    * New algorithms for manipulating automata
    * Object-oriented modeling
    * Pattern-matching
    * Quantum computing
    * Structured and semi-structured documents
    * Symbolic manipulation environments for automata
    * Techniques for graphical display of automata
    * VLSI
    * Viruses, related phenomena


Fifteen previous CIAA conferences took place in: Winnipeg (2010),
Sydney (2009), San Francisco (2008), Prague (2007), Taipei (2006),
Nice (2005), Kingston (2004), Santa Barbara (2003), Tours (2002),
Pretoria (2001), London Ontario (2000), Potsdam (WIA'99), Rouen

CIAA Submission Deadline extended to March 7, 2011
CIAA Notification: April 8, 2011
CIAA Camera-ready Version: April 26, 2011

Conference Dates: July 13-16, 2011


Researchers are invited to submit unpublished original research.
Simultaneous submission to other venues is not allowed.

Submitted papers must use the LNCS style (available at ) and may not exceed 10
pages. Submissions are not anonymous, names and affiliations of the
authors should be included in the paper.

Papers must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the
program committee to assess their merits. If the authors believe more
details are necessary to substantiate the claims of the paper, they
may include a clearly marked appendix to be read at the discretion of
the committee.

Papers will be submitted electronically in PDF, using the EasyChair
system.  Use the following link for submission: Proceedings will
be published in Lecture Notes of Computer Science (LNCS). Extended
versions of selected proceedings papers will appear in a special issue
of Theoretical Computer Science (TCS).

9th International Workshop on Finite State Methods and Natural
Language Processing

The CIAA and FSMNLP conferences have been important international
meetings for researchers and practitioners interested in various
aspects of finite-state tools. These two events, which deal with
complementary topics, will be, for the first time, organised jointly
in Blois, France in 2011.

The International Workshop Series of Finite State Methods and Natural
Language Processing (FSMNLP) is a forum for researchers and
practitioners working on
 - natural language processing applications or language resources,
 - theoretical and implementation aspects, or
 - their combinations
having obvious relevance or an explicitly discussed relation to
Finite-State Methods in NLP.


CIAA/FSMNLP 2011 (July 12-16) will be organized shortly before two
other conferences on related subjects:
DLT 2011 (July 19-22, Milan, Italy) and DCFS 2011 (July 25-27,
Giessen, Germany). These consecutive periods, as well as the European
locations, facilitate the attendance at all four conferences.
