WORDS is a biannual international conference covering the mathematical theory of words (sequences of symbols) from all points of view: combinatorial, algebraic, algorithmic, as well as its applications to biology, linguistics, physics, and others. The previous WORDS conferences have taken place in Rouen (1997, 1999), Palermo (2001), Turku (2003, 2013), Montreal (2005), Marseille (2007), Salerno (2009), Prague (2011). This year we celebrate the 10th edition of WORDS.
A refereed proceedings volume, including extended abstracts of the invited talks as well as original contributions, that fulfil the high quality standards required by a formal publication in computer science, will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. In addition, a local proceedings volume will be published, including, in the spirit of mathematics conferences, a series of less formal contributions informing on current research and work in progress.
The PROGRAM COMMITTEE, that selected the talks to be presented at the conference, consists of: Maxime Crochemore (London), Juhani Karhumäki (Turku), Dirk Nowotka (Kiel - chair), Stepan Holub (Prague), Antonio Restivo (Palermo), Manfred Kufleitner (Stuttgart), Gad Landau (Haifa), Michel Rigo (Liege), James Currie (Winnipeg), Mikhail V. Volkov (Ekaterinburg), Wojciech Plandowski (Warsaw), Luca Zamboni (Lyon).
