WORDS is a field of research that has grown within several branches of
mathematics and that
frequently appears in problems of theoretical computer science.
Indeed, words are central objects
in automata theory, and in fact in any standard model
of computing. In recent years novel applications of concepts in this area have
emerged from algorithmics, biology, linguistics, mathematics.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the algebraic
aspects of the combinatorics
on words and their applications. Special attention will be paid
to the relations with automata theory.
