6th Workshop on

Non-Classical Models

of Automata and

Applications (NCMA 2014)

July 28 - 29, 2014, Kassel, Germany

Many non-classical models of automata and grammar-like structures are the natural objects of theoretical computer science. They are studied from different points of view in various areas, both as theoretical concepts and as formal models for applications. The aim of the workshops on "Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications" is to provide an opportunity for researchers who work on different aspects of non-classical models of automata and grammars to exchange and develop novel ideas.

The first workshop on Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications, NCMA 2009, was held in Wroclaw, Poland, in 2009 as a satellite event of FCT 2009, sponsored by the AutoMathA project of the European Science Foundation (ESF). The second workshop, NCMA 2010, was held in Jena, Germany, as an associated workshop of the Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC 2010), the third workshop, NCMA 2011, was organized at the Universita degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy, and the fourth workshop, NCMA 2012, was held in Fribourg, Switzerland. Finally, the fifth workshop, NCMA 2013, was held in Umeå, Sweden.

For NCMA 2014 we invite (full) research papers of up to 16 pages that present new results or new applications relevant to the topics of NCMA 2014. Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of NCMA 2014 that will appear as a volume in the series books@ocg.at of the Austrian Computer Society just as the proceedings of all previous NCMA conferences, and that will be available at the workshop. In addition, extended and carefully revised versions of selected contributions will be published in a special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae.

In order to emphasize the workshop character of NCMA 2014, also short contributions of up to 6 pages are invited for NCMA 2014. Short papers are expected to report on recent results or ongoing work. If accepted, they will appear in a technical report that will also be available at the workshop.
