Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications (NCMA)

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.

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). Since 2011, the NCMA workshops have been organized as stand-alone events, NCMA 2011 in Milan, Italy, NCMA 2012 in Fribourg, Switzerland, NCMA 2013 in Umeå, Sweden, NCMA 2014 in Kassel, NCMA 2015 in Porto, Portugal, NCMA 2016 in Debrecen, Hungary, NCMA 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic, NCMA 2018 in Košice, Slovakia, and NCMA 2019, in Valencia, Spain.

The NCMA 2020, planned to be an event in Vienna, Austria, from August 26 to 27, 2020, has been cancelled due to the Corona (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic.

The next NCMA will take place at August 26/27, 2022, in Debrecen.

The proceedings of the first eleven NCMA workshops (2009 - 2019) have been published in the series and the proceedings of NCMA 2022 will appear as a volume of the EPTCS - Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science series. Full versions of selected papers have been published as special volumes of Fundamenta Informaticae, of the Journal of Automata, Languages and Combinatorics and of RAIRO - Theoretical Informatics and Applications.
