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.


* Markus HOLZER, Justus-Liebig-Universitaet Giessen, Germany
   Title to be defined

* Mark-Jan NEDERHOF, University of St Andrews, Scotland
   "Generalisation of the prefix probability of probabilistic

Both conferences:
* Sheng YU, University of Western Ontario, Canada
   A talk in honour of Derick Wood
* Joachim NIEHREN, INRIA, Lille, France
   "XPath Streaming by Tree Automata"

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
(WIA'98), London Ontario (WIA'97), London Ontario (WIA'96). See the
conference site ( for archives on
these previous editions.

Eight FSMNLP workshops have been organised in the past in:
Pretoria (2009), Ispra (2008), Potsdam (2007), Helsinki (2005),
Budapest (2003), Helsinki (2001), Ankara (1998), Budapest (1996).


CIAA/FSMNLP 2010 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 three conferences.
