CIAA, the International Conference on Implementation and Application of Automata is an annual academic conference in the field of computer science. Its purpose is to bring together members of the academic, research, and industrial community who have an interest in the theory, implementation, and application of automata and related structures. There, the conference concerns research on all aspects of implementation and application of automata and related structures, including theoretical aspects. In 2000, the conference grew out of the Workshop on Implementation of Automata (WIA).

Like most theoretical computer science conferences its contributions are strongly peer-reviewed; the articles appear in proceedings published in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Extended versions of selected papers of each year's conference alternatingly appear in the journals Theoretical Computer Science and International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science. Every year a best paper award is presented.

Topics of the Conference

Since the focus of the conference is on applied theory, contributions usually come from a widespread range of application domains. Typical topics of the conference include, among others, the following, as they relate to automata:

  • Bio-inspired computing
  • Complexity of automata operations
  • Compilers
  • Computer-aided verification
  • Concurrency
  • Data and image compression
  • Design and architecture of automata software
  • Document engineering
  • Natural language processing
  • Pattern-matching
  • Teaching of automata theory
  • Text processing
  • Techniques for graphical display of automata
