The satellite workshop of DLT'18 will be held at Kyoto Sangyo University, Kyoto, Japan on September 5-7, 2018 before the DLT'18. (

Masami and Domosi

The workshop is dedicated to celebrating Professor Masami Ito's 77th (喜寿 kiju = happy age) and Professor Pál Dömösi's 75th birthday and their long friendship and collaboration.

The purpose of the workshop is to discuss recent developments in the field of algebraic systems related to the theoretical computer science, informatics, non-classical computing represented by quantum computing. But, the topics are not limited to those fields. Works consisting of innovative ideas, short papers and work in progress are also welcomed.

The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • grammars, acceptors, and transducers for words, trees, and graphs;
  • algebraic theories of automata;
  • algorithmic, combinatorial, and algebraic properties of words and languages;
  • variable length codes;
  • symbolic dynamics;
  • cellular automata;
  • polyominoes and multidimensional patterns;
  • decidability questions;
  • image manipulation and compression;
  • efficient text algorithms;
  • relationships to cryptography, concurrency, complexity theory, and logic;
  • bio-inspired computing;
  • quantum computing.
