The CIAA conference series was started in 1996 as the Workshop on Implementation and Application of Automata, in London, Ontario, Canada. The contributions to this conference cover all aspects of implementation, application, and theory of automata and related structures, including both classical automata theory and non-classical ones.

As mentioned on CIAA website, the purpose of the conference is to facilitate a better interaction between members of the academic, research, and industrial community, having as interest solving and analyzing problems in implementation and application of automata, the foundation of computer science.

The CIAA 2018 will take place immediately after

thus it will be easy to attend all these events.
