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, 2017), Marseille (2007), Salerno (2009), Prague (2011), and Kiel (2015).
The 12th International Conference on Words, WORDS 2019 will take place on September 9-13 2019 at Loughborough University, UK (http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/compsci/).
Co-chairs of this edition are Robert Mercaș and Daniel Reidenbach.
As in the previous years the conference proceedings will appear as a refereed volume of the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series.
