NCMA 2016 – 8th Workshop on Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications
/NCMA welcomes research papers that contain original contributions on non-classical models of automata and applications and related subjects. 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. Aims and scope The aim of the workshops on “Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications” is to provide a forum for researchers who work on different aspects of non-classical models of automata and grammars to exchange and develop novel ideas. In order to emphasise the workshop character of NCMA 2016, we also invite short contributions that report on recent results or ongoing work in addition to full papers. However, in contrast to the accepted regular (full) papers that will be published in the proceedings, the accepted short papers will appear in a separate technical report. Topics for NCMA 2016 include formal models inspired by linguistics, bio-computing, text processing, document engineering, self-assembly, etc., bio-inspired models of automata and generative devices, cellular automata, forgetting automata and restarting automata, automata with additional resources, regulated rewriting/automata, networks of automata or generative devices, models of cooperation and communication, quantum automata. Other related topics, in particular, contributions dealing with questions on classical automata and generative devices are also welcome.

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), the third workshop, NCMA 2011, was organized at the Universita degli Studi di Milano, Milano, Italy, the fourth workshop, NCMA 2012, was held in Fribourg, Switzerland, the fifth workshop, NCMA 2013, was held in Umea, Sweden, the sixth workshop, NCMA 2014, took place in Kassel, Germany, and the seventh workshop, NCMA 2015 was held in Porto, Portugal.
