Conferences of the Summer of Formal Languages 2020 in Vienna, Austria

Due to the COVID-19 different solutions/actions have been taken for the Conferences of the Summer of Formal Languages 2020:

  • UCNC 2020, August 17-21 – Further information will be provided soon!

The International Conference on Unconventional Computation and Natural Computation (UCNC) is a meeting where scientists from many different backgrounds are united in their interest in novel forms of computation, human-designed computation inspired by nature, and computational aspects of natural processes. UCNC provides a forum for such scientists to meet and discuss their work. The 19th UCNC will be hosted by the Technische Univeristät Wien, Vienna, Austria.

The Asian chapter and the European chapter of the Membrane Computing community, i,e, ACMC 2020 and CMC 2020, are united in one joint conference. The International Conference on Membrane Computing 2020 (ICMC 2020) now will be organized as an electronic conference, September 14th to 18th, 2020. 

  • DCFS 2020, August 24-26 – Only collection of papers

The 22nd International Conference on Descriptional Complexity of Formal Systems (DCFS 2020) was expected to be organized by Rudolf Freund at the TU Wien as part of the Summer of Formal Languages 2020 in Wien, Austria, and by the IFIP Working Group 1.02 “Descriptional Complexity”. Unfortunately, due to the development of the crisis caused by the Corona virus, the conference had to be canceled as an event with the participants meeting in person in Wien. However, in order to allow researchers in the area of descriptional complexity to still present their recent results in some form, the DCFS steering committee decided to prepare a volume, collecting papers which will be selected by a committee after a standard review process.

The volume will be published in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The Steering Committee is also considering the possibility of offering to the authors of accepted papers the option of giving a short presentation during DCFS 2021.

The 12th International Workshop on Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications.

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 classical and non-classical models of automata and grammars to exchange and develop novel ideas.

  • MCU 2020, August 27-28 – Further information will be provided soon!

The 9th Conference on Machines, Computations and Universality – MCU  traces its roots back to the mid 90’s, and has always been concerned with gaining a deeper understanding of computation and universality through the study of models of general purpose computation. The MCU conference series was initiated in Paris (1995). Following editions were held in Metz (1998), Chisinau (2001), St. Petersburg (2004), Orleans (2007), Zurich (2013), Famagusta (2015), and Fontainebleau (2018).

Submission Deadlines for Conferences of the Summer of Formal Languages 2020

The Summer of Formal Languages is organized by Rudolf Freund, TU Wien, and sponsored by the Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms, and the Kurt Gödel Society.
