13th International Conference on Language and Automata Theory and Applications

LATA 2019

Saint Petersburg, Russia - March 26-29, 2019

Deadlines (all at 23:59 CET)


LATA is a conference series on theoretical computer science and its applications. LATA 2019 will reserve significant room for young scholars at the beginning of their career. It will aim at attracting contributions from classical theory fields as well as application areas.


LATA 2019 will take place in Saint Petersburg, whose historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The venue will be Saint Petersburg State University.


LATA 2019 will consist of:

  • ▸ invited talks
  • ▸ peer-reviewed contributions
