Call for Papers

The central topic of the conference is combinatorics on words: the study of finite and infinite sequences of symbols from varying points of view, including their combinatorial, algebraic and algorithmic aspects, as well as their applications.

Authors are invited to submit original contributions, in the form of extended abstracts, for publication in a refereed volume of the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS).

In the tradition of the WORDS conference, authors are also invited to submit high level contributions, which might not meet the requirements of LNCS, for publication in the local proceedings.

There will be a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science devoted to WORDS 2013 consisting of selected papers.
